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

It uses a camera and a pinch of AI to tell if you garage is open, you can control it remotely, it can send notifications, etc.

The doc put me on a two month run of this cinnarizine. I've done about three weeks, forgetting a lot, so just 17 pills. But I'm not noticing the tinnitus as much as before. I'll keep you posted.

I have a camera in my garage for this purpose, but it’s honestly easier to just turn around.

Two weeks ago, I came down at 4 am to do my riding thing. Both doors were open!

All three bikes were where they were supposed to be, I didn’t check anything else. I still have no idea how that happened.

It’s not unusual for boats to withdraw in ocean races. They get damaged, have equipment failures, and people get hurt.

Mo will have to tell us.
If you scroll back on the time to about 0820 today you can rule out a collosion betweent the two. The Restive was a number of "nm" ahead of the Jettie. It turned around first.

I'm sure he'll inform us first as soon as he's onshore.

I didn’t look into details. We’ll find out what happened soon enough.

Busy day. Awoke at 4 for ride at 6AM. Plan was to do 3 50 mile loops for 150 total. But the pace was a smidge faster than ideal and the wind was strong (15MPH) so although I felt just ok after 100 miles, I was sure I would be in a ton of hurt for the last 50. So I called it a century. Still respectable. Came home and crashed for a couple hours.

Speaking of crash, a clubmate on a different ride went down hard. I am told his pedal came off. I know he just came back here from Arizona, so I am suspecting the pedal was not torqued enough, but not positive. He was apparently unconscious for a minute but came to before the ambulance came. He is at the hospital but I am told no life threatening injuries.

Tomorrow we have a short ride, then heading to NJ for Father’s Day. My dad is 88, so I don’t know how many more Father’s Days he has left.

In 2020 when even the parks had the water turned off I resorted to using a 70oz Camelbak on the road when it was over 100. I tried the bottle in the back pocket, couldn't stand it. I put on a handle bar bag and put 2 bottles in there but I couldn't get comfortable with the way it affected the steering feel and the bag took away some of my hand position. I could never use a bottle launcher (seat post cage) because it would interfere with my badonkadonk.

Could make reefing and unreefing difficult. Or your mainsail could start pulling out of the mast, which could get "interesting"

Yes. She lives in NJ. She had a (thankfully unsuccessful) overdose in the spring of last year and had a very unusual brain injury that made her need lots of care and rehab. It was essentially a hard reset to much of her brain so she had to relearn many basic skills. She spent all of last summer here (doing outpatient rehab and Mrs datlas took care of her), and thankfully has had a good recovery so she is back in her apartment in NJ, we don’t see her too often but every couple of months.
