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

2 rides in on new power meter pedals. What I learned in these rides was that when I "felt" like I was going fast and hard - that was nothing. Those power numbers are handy and so far I only look at the 3-second avg, cadence, and L/R balance. Learning after over 20 years of cycling is a good thing.

New tiller formed kinda. I think I might need to pare it down a little more, but gonna do shakedown first. Then consider making an extension for it.

Just put one hit of teak oil on it.

The whir of electric motors instead of the roar of V-(insert favorite cylinder count)s takes some getting used to.

Yep, Claris level plane, some coarse sandpaper on a block and some 180 to finish. And a little bit of work done with a C&V Stanley rasp.

I walked .500 miles without stabbing pain in my left foot due to metatarsalgia. Pain was a 2 or 3. Three weeks ago it was an 8 after the same walk. I seem to be acclimating to the heat better as well. Sciatica problem? Still the same.
