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

I have been sleeping 8 or nine hours a night these past couple months, It's been delicious! The past two mornings, however, I'm awake at 3:30ish and that's all she wrote. Perhaps related to the Autumnal Equinox.
And it's cold this morning. That could be a contributing factor. But cold is good, if it portends and early winter.

That's actually an important factor when planning tours this time off year. If they are hilly, slow days, you can find yourself rushed to get stuff done while it's still light out. During my latest trip I found myself pitching my tent in the dark a some nights because I decided to relax, shower and cook first. And I was always getting up to make coffee and eat breakfast in the dark. All that impacts headlamp battery usage. You also tend to trip over things like rocks and roots at your campsite.

Montana/Idaho in mid to late-June is the complete opposite, especially the farther north you are. A couple of nights I have camped near the western border of Montana and then spent the next night near the eastern border of Idaho. The border serves as the border between MDT and PDT. So on day one, if sunrise in Montana is at 6:00 it is at 5 the next morning in Idaho. On the flip side, it gets darker an hour earlier than in Montana.

Indeed. It's a factor even locally. On yesterday's ride, I was surprised to see some riders with arm warmers and/or jackets on. It seems too soon. OTOH for Saturday's ride we are expecting a start temp of 46F so I will certainly need a gilet and leg warmers, maybe even a light jacket.

Maybe time to move to seedsbelize2 's neighborhood?

Depends on what you want out of the wheels. The Competitions are probably more resilient, because of the cold forging, and maybe a little better ride quality. My single speed wheels have 32 straight-gauge spokes and they feel fine. Most of my rides on that bike are under three hours.

For more intelligent commentary on spokes, I'd search Psimet2001 's posts on the subject.

Cooler here too. I expect an early, and long winter this year. Great for us southerners; not so much for the rest of you.
Clouds of mosquitoes these past two days. Unusual.

Back to the dock last night to avoid a monster front. First job of the morning was replace dead car battery. Fortunately a dockmate was here and gave me a ride to the battery store.

It's a cycling reference. BITD when cresting a hill, the racers would grab a newspaper and put under jersey as a poor-man's gilet.

So far, our (4) are doing their part and bringing home the grades. Our two oldest are members of their high school's NHS club and the two younger ones in elementary and middle school are both in G&T programs. I have no shame and can admit they definitely didn't get the brains and studious traits from me.

I started with arm and leg warmers a couple of days. At least one other I started with a arm warmers and a windbreaker. The morning out of Paxinos must have been in the upper 40s, if not colder. Put on the polypro glove liners that morning as well as at least one other morning.

Some still do. Saw a race recently where fans were passing out newspapers and several riders grabbing them. I thought at the time that it would be hard to get rid of them with "no littering" rules heavily enforced by the UCI.
