Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

That missed face mask call on one of the Eagle's fumbles was a bummer. And the act of grabbing the face mask very well could have been the cause of the fumble. I agree with the NFL rules guy who was asked to comment. Personal safety penalties like that should be reviewable.

I have been to Fargo. Arrived by bike. But during the summer (July).

I find North Dakota strangely appealing. Rode across the entire state back in '99 while crossing the country. Went back in 2006 for CANDISC. Took a tour of the homestead where Larence Welk grew up.

It's the times when I really don't feel like going for a bike ride that I really must go. 86 degrees F, and somewhat humid. No wind to speak of. Cold front and rain coming in later in the week provide a good reason to take the bull by the horns now, on this beautiful day.

If you have normal kidney function and no sulfa allergy, it's VERY low risk. PM me if any details needed.

Thanks. That's fine. Orthopod wants LSS on it for post-op pain management after he does her knee. Her mom developed AF, CHF, and a stroke on a cox2 inhibitor, maybe one of the really bad ones, and I assume she had small vessel cardiac disease, so it gives me the willies. LSS would rather take rat poison than opiates.

I think it's fine and reasonable as above. She may want to ask anesthesia for a nerve block post-op. I would also have a few narcotic pain meds lying around just in case....but her choice.

I mean, the officials go both ways - the ejection was also unnecessary; don't remember if that was this game or another but I think it was this one. It happens.

Probably because the football players in my HS and University were almost 100% bullies and french showers, but I really have zero interest in that sport.

I think they are doing a local block as well as the epidural and will send her home with some narcs. Opiates give her untreatable nausea and she's amazingly brave about pain, so they'll end up at drug turn-in day with all the other crap that's been pressed on us over the years.

I think that was a game on Sunday. If it's the one I am thinking of (hit to the head of the QB), I agree. While it was technically a penalty, he certainly did not target the QB. He led with his shoulder, but the QB's trajectory changed when he got hit by another player.

But the missed face mask last night was glaringly obvious. Wasn't no incidental contact. Damn near twisted his head 45 degrees.

She could also consider tramadol, which is a pseudo-narcotic. Your guys' call.

34F and cloudy. Riding down to the cafe. Mainly, because I need more coffee beans.

And it feels sooo good on the other end.
I felt like I'd forgotten something, as I left. Five or six km in, I happened to glance down and noticed I only had one glove on. Good thing it wasn't a sweat fest.

Yes, I need to remember this. A question was asked on one of my fb cycling groups. What is your cold cut-off temp? I answered 70F, which is mostly true.

I like to stay off the bike if it's 30-40° F with precipitation. Below and above that is OK. Below is kinda sketchy if not on a MTB though.

I don't really have a cut-off temperature, but the temperature is a factor in bike choice.

You mean you stop wearing cut-offs below 70F?

I stop wearing shorts, in general, in the low eighties. Mid eighties today, and many of the people I passed on their motorcycles had hoodies, and jackets on. Cold is a relative thing.
