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

Heh, I never noticed before how far back the 3rd base coach stands before the ball is pitched and/or he has no baserunners. Makes sense, self preservation.

As far as Mojo, Want Vs Need. Do you need a new drive train prolly not, but you do have the means to pay for one.

Go for it.

So, my wife reads me the end of the mask mandate yesterday afternoon. In the evening I walked up to the store with my mask in my packet and everybody i passed was wearing a mask. Maybe it doesn't take effect until Monday. I ask her to double check. It was correct, the mandate ended yesterday afternoon. This morning I head out on the bike, with my mask in my pocket and everybody I pass is masked. So I stop in at the Police Station and ask. Masks are no longer obligatory as of yesterday. I am the first to admit it felt very strange to be out in public without one. 99 and 44/100 of the people I pass are masked (I have to pass through two villages in each direction). By the end I was mentally high fiving those I passed who were maskless. I could count them on the fingers of one hand.

Points for cycling content.
I use Excel A LOT in my work. It's often easier to make it do what I want than to use other more capable data analysis software, like making graphs how I want them to look versus whatever the default is in the analysis software. I know, some graphing software might do an even better job but to use it I'd have to learn it's architecture and who's got THAT much time?

Or am I over thinking it like I over think everything.
Yeah, that one.

I find it pretty easy to get up to 400w seated fairly quickly. Maintaining it, that's more difficult.

Cool thanks. If I were to do all 30 sets seated I don’t think I would be able to do all 30 sets. Something to try next time though.

Mandates ended here a month or more ago, but people have been slow to give them up. It's probably running 50:50 in most stores. At work, some folks wear them all the time. One or two not at all. I don't wear one in my office, but I told my group that I'll put one on if any of them prefer when they come to talk to me. We're still doing our group meetings in a conference room large enough for all 7 of us to be 6' distant from each other, but at least we're still doing them in person.

I'm sure the people where I grew up - who were largely maskless in stores when I visited there at the peak of Delta last summer - would laugh at how cautious we in the Bay Area have been, but, you know, we have generally had fewer deaths and hospitalizations per capita than any other metro area our size, so...

I don’t know how the guys/gals and gcn do it. Riding in the rain and dampness is worse than riding in the cold. I could not live somewhere with rain in the forecast constantly.

The mandate was removed only for the outdoors and open spaces. We'll prolly have the indoor mandate until pigs fly.

Huh. We never had an outdoor mandate, or if we did, it was very brief.
