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

Zwift is good for the social aspect, but there’s a lot to be said for structure. My biggest issue following the training plans is I want to go outside.This winter I plan to stick to the trainer unless I can do at least 40 outside.

Agree. But since most of my rides are group rides, the social aspect (or maybe just "accountability") seems to be a strong motivator to keep me on the trainer.

I actually prefer to ride outside and will do so even on our coldest days (low teens F) but if the roads are icy I won't risk it.

It was pretty awful. I’ve had bouts of minor dizziness in the past, but never been physically I’ll. I have pretty significant hearing loss in my right ear with no known cause, my pcp believes that’s what causes it, especially when it’s allergy season and I get congested

Last winter I’d go if it was over 10.

Yeah, I missed a LOT of rides the past two winters but really because of road conditions.

We seemed to be having a lot of nuisance snowstorms followed by daytime highs just barely above freezing and lows below freezing, which results in frozen runoff on the back-roads and the risk of ice scares the crap out of me.

Latest thinking about most common cause of vertigo is cellular debris in semicircular canals. When I was in medical school they told it usually was a viral cause, but the debris theory is probably closer to the mark.

Does the debris ever go away?

It either gets resorbed or you acclimate to it. That's why usually vertigo gets better with time and/or Epley maneuvers. But like most things in life, it's complicated and the debris/crystals theory is probably only part of the story.

New helmet day




Helios Spherical is replacing a tired old non MIPS Giro Savant. It’s much more silvery in person than I expected but still a nice looking lid.

There’s definitely a relationship between having full sinuses and my bouts of vertigo- assume I’m getting fluid build up which exacerbates the material issue.

I checked the map. It's about normal for you to have first frost about now. For my area it's 10/16-10/31.

My preference is for group road rides, but I will often prefer Zwift over riding solo on the road. The interaction with other riders in real time - even in a virtual world - is more motivational for me.
