I will be on a 5 week cycling vacation in the Adriatic area - Croatia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Italy and Greece. Plans made prior to Covid. No racing just riding a lot and taking in the country side. It seems like a lot of preparation for the trip. We are taking bikes and related crappola. Will have internet connection and if I get a great pic, I will post it up. Vaxed to the max.

So I'm discovering that one of my SRMs might be bad. Which would explain why I'm riding so bad, chasing and not hitting numbers even close to what I was able to back in late January. Seems stupid. Cigarettes and booze seem like a smarter idea. Granted, I've now outlived my father, but maybe he was onto something.

I tried the cigarettes and booze thing, I don't recommend it. I have 1.5 years to catch up to my father. Already outlived one of my brothers, my uncle, and my grandfather.
