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'm no tri-guy but it's 100+ degrees here and a 30+ mile ride might be 3 water bottles, not 2.

Convince me I don't need the water or give me a rec on what under the back seat water bottle holder is a good deal.
I pre-hydrated, carried a bottle of electrolite mix, and still refilled the water bottle three times in 40 miles this morning.

There are triangular frame bags for self-defense purposes. You know, in case you need to hit some upside the head with a bag.

Its your constitutional right.

So, your initials would be “ED?” Not a good set for a man.

Another option - wife or some other person to drive behind you and hand you bottles when you need a fresh one. All the serious cyclists have that.

Something bad happened and they turned back (they are next to Jettie). I hope those on board are all okay.

So, Garmin tells me it got to 113F on my ride today. If that happened, I am super human. But, I know the temp topped out this morning at 98F (hot enough). Where did Garmin come up with that?

Had a good ~80 mile ride with some of the guys. Beautiful weather for it, though a tad windy.

E-bikes were a theme. In the 100 yards that we were on a bike path, we witnessed an older guy go down hard, supposedly dislocating his shoulder. We stopped and helped and he had his wife come fetch him. Details are unclear, but it seems as if he crashed while avoiding a couple of my guys as they slowed to turn right at an intersection (with a stop sign for the trail users). I think that he was bombing along, full throttle; he said that he didn't think that my guys were going to stop/slow.

Myself and one other guy peeled off and rode back together. On one stretch, a guy on an e-bike, sitting in the draft of a Jeep, slipped by us. He lost the draft but kept up his effort and the assist, creak-creak-creaking along at a good clip. My friend and I traded pulls, tracked him down and dropped him. Forgot to give him the look.

It has a temp sensor; roads get hot.

Hadn't though of that. Almost the whole ride was on country streets with no shade, and I mean no shade. Wouldn’t be surprised if the tarmac generated that much heat.

Got pulled over just south of Brady (of course), TX. The cop was going the other way and pulled me over for speeding... 78 in a 70, with no radar gun, just an eyeball that I "looked fast" so he gave me a warning. Then he decided I was jittery while talking, and having said I came from Colorado probably had a bunch of weed on me and wanted to search the car. He was quite surprised that someone nervous at being pulled over was in fact a rather boring square.

There were about 1,000 riders at the event this morning, and I saw at least 100 ebikes.

You let him search? You told him you were coming from Colorado? SMFH. Bad client. 🤔

I'm sure it would have gone swimmingly if I had said no.

He would never know. Tell him you were heading home from Amarillo. They have no right to ask. And they have no right to search your car without probable cause. It was a ******** stop.

If you told him no search because he didn’t have probable cause to search your car, he would not have pushed it. Driving back from Colorado is not probable cause. Should have said, let me call my lawyer and ask him. That would have likely ended it.

What? You're suggesting the constabulary might overstep their authority? Pshaw! Why, the very idea!

Yeah, I almost never look at the temp reads from my rides, but when I do, there are always a handful of readings way higher than the ambient.

I assume that this is one of those instances where you could just ask, "am I free to go?" and GTFO? Sounds like there's no grounds fer nuthin'.
