Addiction LXXVIII

Notices
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

If you change the activity to "workout," does is it still count the mileage? Or you could also make it a private activity; I'm pretty certain that keeps it off of leaderboards, etc.

Agree: meaningless. The leaderboard should show CTL and ATL like this one:

An old acquaintance of mine posted a workout on IG, saying he did 30 odd miles at 15ish MPH.

On what he referred to as a "desk bike"

I guess you need to quantify the effort somehow, but calculating distance and average speed on something that doesn't ever move?

Ill just edit the distance to zero manually (and on Garmin, and TrainingPeaks...). I need the data accurate because I want my cycling hours and TSS accurate. I also want to know my yearly real miles. Solution is to use a PM that has no speed broadcast. Fortunately I had already installed the P1 pedals.

Speaking of Strava mileage, out of curiosity, I looked at the stats from someone that's currently leading one on those big, meaningless Strava challenges (a Trek-sponsored one with goals of 100, 500, and 1000 miles over the course of the month). The leader currently has over 2.5k miles. Looking at his profile, he's done over 100 centuries and is sitting at 19k miles YTD. He's spent over 1000 hours in the saddle this year. I mean, com'on. There's committed and there's should-be-committed.

As an aside, I don't know how, but Strava does do this somehow. I've never seen where I can look it up, but I remember that late last year, I got a notification that I'd finally reached my mileage annual goal. According to my profile page mileage, I'd exceeded it almost a month previously, so there's some kind of separate tally going on. It'd be nice if they're allow you to easy parse that out, too.

Thats what TSS is for, if you have a PM. If not, just straight duration, or hrTSS. Never distance.

What kind of fred applies a tube patch to the outside of a tire? I t won't last long out there, over all those words. I have hope for the one on the inside though. To even get that tire to 1000 100 miles would be a start
No riding for me today. Too many workers to help out. My wife's ac unit got mounted in such a way that the water drains from the wrong end, and drips down the wall, instead out through the hose.

Wow, it won't let me edit distance. I just wiped the activity. I guess they're worried I could cheat my mileage up with a fake ride or something?

It's correct now on Garmin and TrainingPeaks though.

I basked in his heavenly glow during the 2012 edition of Cycle Oregon.

I was following a friend down Topanga Canyon to the beach and I kept smelling burning rubber. This is a descent with high speeds and twisty turns, rock walls and, of course, cars. At the bottom he notices his front tire is rubbing on the fork, this is the source of the burning rubber smell. I can't see and don't have reading glasses with me but I try to straighten it up with my spoke wrench. I try to get another friend to look at it but everyone is in a hurry to go as always so we roar off down Pacific Coast Hwy and a few miles later my friend stops and the tire is rubbing again.

This time I see the huge crack in the hub (Hed, I think) and a spoke is puling through. He calls his wife for pick up and I feel super guilty for trying to true the wheel which was unsafe. I'm really happy he didn't crash but this was sooo dangerous and I probably should have insisted we have someone else look at it the first stop.

Yikes, but who's looking for a cracked hub?

I remember that road from a couple of visits to LA as a college student. Friend's brother had a house up near the top. So much sublime and ridiculous in that area.

I feel like I'm way overdue for a correction; every peach that I've had this year (granted, it's less than a dozen) has been fantastic. Experience tells me that that's just not sustainable in the upper midwest.

Yeah, I've had great peaches too. Just regular old organic from WF, but clearly a few different cultivars.

I’m good with about half a peach every few years. My sister would plow through a bag in an afternoon though.

Why not just create a new fictional bike type in Strava and training peaks, etc and use ( assign ) that solely for indoor rides? That should segregate indoor and outdoor activities.

I log indoor miles, but don't really care one way or the other.

We have a peach tree that gives us amazing peaches every August. But we had a major storm come through a couple weeks ago with hail bigly, so all the baby peaches got knocked out of the tree. Sad!

Good peaches are my favorite fruit. It's unfortunate that they're regularly inedible 'round these parts. Buying a bag of peaches makes for a very high risk/high reward proposition for me.

Some people don't have mechanical knowledge and if they put their trust in me, I feel some responsibility. You're right, though. I didn't expect that.

When we do Topanga we usually go over Old Topanga at the top because it's quieter. Here is a clip from someone with bad speedometer readings.
