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

That's the brand name? I've never worn, nor considered bobs. Huge advantages?

Yes that's the name and I believe they have shorts and bibs. The whole shorts vs bibs is a separate issue for another thread. Go and start one in the 41??

LOLOL

Really my only options are Amazon and MercadoLibre.mx. Everyone says they ship worldwide but no one ships to Mexico. And for good reason. Unless they ship by courier, it can take four months for something to move across the country. By then they've refunded the purchase price and have lost all. I will likely try a Qualidyne product, in the US$35 range. Bibs are only a few dollars more than shorts.

Kudos. Let me know how that works out.

I actually have both bibs and shorts, and honestly don't have a really strong opinion. The "higher end" lines tend to use Bibs more because that's what the pros use, and I am fine with bibs but also fine with shorts.

134 miles and 9600 ft. I set 48 achievements and 20 0f those are personal records. The best part...No cramping. It would appear I am doing better with my hydration plan.

Nice.

My buddy did B to VT Saturday. It’s ~140 ish miles with 10k climbing, he averaged 240 watts with a speed of 20.9 and had numerous KOMs. He posts nothing on strava, so hard to determine what his actual training looks like.

You can observe the 41 thread in your own time. I have no skin in the game. I don't have an easily bruised ego. I am curious. Yellow

Made a map of my Vermont route. Stayed at Jamaica S.P., Mt. Ascutney S.P., Silver Lake S.P. (2 nights due to rain) Stillwater S.P. (was supposed to stay there 2 nights), Brighton S.P. (2 nights), municipal campground in Newport and a hotel room in St. Albans. Caught Amtrak back to Brattleboro the next morning. Hard to tell from the compressed profile, but there were some nasty grades, especially on some of the unpaved sections. Mileage inside of campgrounds is not shown. Nor is the mileage in and around Island Pond during the day off at Brighton and the mileage into town and back in Newport.

I used the word doctor, not doctor. PA.
She smiled because she knows she will make a pile of money off of your stubborn butt. My Dr. Smiles the same smile.

I'm more worried about the ones that smile when they tell you to bend over.

I found The Black Bibs $60 bibs to be so slippery that they were completely unusable. The fit was great, the pad was nice, but I slid all over the saddle and spent the entire ride pushing myself back into place on the saddle. Like, CONSTANTLY.

I don't know the extent of Trek's involvement in the teams but the road team is different than the mtb team. I'd be curious if Trek had enough pull to ask her to help one of the Trek-Segafredo riders.
How would other teams react to a Trek-Segafredo rider getting help from a non-team rider?

Though not ethical, it has happened in the past whenever trade teams and national teams are in the same race.

I'm not overly excited when I see them Downtown, or in Tempe, or in Mesa. I just remain calm and totally prepared to take evasive measures.

I planned out a 42 mile ride (Dan would be so proud), and told myself I wouldn't have any pastries, but that tart cherry crostata had me under its spell. 1.6 miles of gravel according to ridewithgps.
