Addiction LXXIX

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

Then you have to stop and reset it unless you can tolerate the tire rubbing the chainstay.

With my v-tach, I could keep riding too, didn't even notice anything at first. Occasionally it would sap all my strength for the rest of the ride, but I was in denial. The stress test after my accident is what found it, and they stopped the test in a big hurry too.

I was at least smart enough to brace the chainstay and seatstay bridges with tie-down straps.
Not my bike, so I'm good.

Happened a lot on bikes with chromed horizontal dropouts. Quite a few modern skewers aren't up to the task of keeping a wheel in place on those.

I'll probably end up in the neighborhood. I need a decent ride after yesterday's frustratingly ill-planned family fun, which saw me take an unplanned rest day.

Ask him for a good drug to help with your heart problem.

Man, I thought that the wind from the last couple days was going to taper off, but it looks like it's going to stick around a little longer. It almost makes me want to see if I can find a long, flat, straight stretch of road on which to do 40km stretch in an hour... just for gits and shiggles.

A cycling friend has posted a semi-epic ride of 88 miles tomorrow. I can ride to/from the start to make the total about 105.

Can I get some thoughtful advice on what to do?

Went out to set a couple of power benchmarks today and ended up with a 5 min hill PR and new 60 and 180 sec power numbers (check intervals.icu, WhyFi :þ ) I wish to hell they’d run the TT this week. Hit my max HR too.

Actually haven’t felt quite like this since the 90s. I feel like racing. Wish I could still run.

Road with the manager of my LBS this morning. He took a look at my back wheel and his only concern was that it was so new. His had the same amount of play but it was a lot older than mine. Said the play would hurt anything but that he would rather not touch it until I reach out to shimano. He thought they might send me a replacement wheel. One can hope.

That was the first time I rode with that guy and he is a beast. He and another lady left us in the dust more than once and I was doing everything I could to stay on his wheel. Really had to focus on staying as aero as possible, something I havnt had to really think about in the past.
