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

Pain was not produced however which makes me worry the culprit was not found. Leaking from disc on to nerves can cause the pain but I was told by 18 months that should have stopped but Leaking and pain is still present after 2 years.

Gastro issue remains a mystery a drug was prescribed that might help with my idiopathic abdominal issue.. similar to but wasn't called IBS. Called functional Bowel Syndrome. I think they're making stuff up. Without clothes I'm now 166 with my stick like legs.

We were farm kids. Dad put us in the bike; then grabbed the seat from behind.and ran to get us going. We never knew when he let go. We were riding across the large front yard.

Best way I know is to go for a bike ride (or a walk) 1 hour after dietary indiscretion. Burns the sugar off as fuel.

Sounds like a plan. Plus I can tell Mrs BD the plan is doctor recommended.

When I ride the mtb I always take the bigger Camelbak. It's between 8 and about 11 pounds depending on how much water I put in it. I carry a spare tube and those tubes are heavy. When I rode a 26" wheel mtb, the spare tube wasn't much bigger than a road tube.

I have successfully removed ice cream from my diet. It was once a favorite food, as was apple pie. I suppose I could learn how to make a pie. My mom left us and all that great food went with her. She made great pies.

It's an old line I stole from Calvin Trillin, who was trying to justify his eating habits as not having caused all that much weight gain.

Beautiful experience yesterday. I was riding through a valley east of Penn State that has a large Amish population. The one room school houses were letting out for the afternoon. I ended up riding behind five children for about a half mile. They were all probably 9 years old or younger. They were riding those bike-like scooters dressed in traditional clothing. I looked down and noticed all, including the two young girls, were barefoot. At the east end of the valley they peeled off to their respective homes that are close to each other. First, one boy went right, stopping to retrieve the mail from the box. Then a girl went left across the road. The final two boys and a girl went right into the last house before the woods began. I imagined them meeting up the next morning for the trip to school.

Don't like how much rear housing there is, and will tidy that up later. Probably invert the stem when my back stops hurting.

The Sora bike is now a R7000 105 bike, replete with power meter.


I like !

what grips are you using ? ODI ?

Yes, ODI.

Skipped the carbon bar and pop of color for now.

Wife's happy to have the bike, tools and work stand out of her kitchen.
