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

Don't know that one.

Every so often, I have one of those days when I feel like a cycling god. Today was one of them. I don't know if it was the wind, or the bike, or the legs, or getting a good sleep, or what. All I know is that I got PRs on longish segments I've done 100 or more times on Strava, and every time I asked the legs for a little more, they always had it. This would have been the day to try for a PR on Old La Honda, but with Mrs. GeneJockey in SoCal, discretion is the better part of valor. Can't expect her to respond to a Call Of Shame if she's in the OC!

I haven't ridden the Canyon that much this year. Now I wonder why. It's light, comfy, fast, etc. I was going to take the Litespeed, but it's crusted with salt from riding in the heat the week before last.

Really sucks the pounding you took going home.
No penalty. It’s usually a fairly hot reaching race, but beyond that, ask the owner. 😉

I was doing so well on the bike today, I think some guy on an old Kestrel accused me of being on an e-bike. It wasn't entirely clear, something about "the bike doing the work", So I dropped him. He'll probably comfort himself with the inaccurate belief that the old fat guy who dropped him was cheating.

Did anybody try to commit vehicular man slaughter?

My wife and I worked in the ceement pond for at least a couple hours this afternoon. We re-potted the centerpiece plant, which included six buckets of soil and two of stone,
​​​re-potted the cycad, moved heavy things around--- things that can only be moved through water, and one thing that even that wouldn't work. We got a 5/4 x 6' board and made a bridge, and then a ramp out of it.* Hard work all of it, but up to our shoulders in comfortable water. We're both resting comfortably and have decided to order out for dinner.

*And realized that's how they built the pyramids.

Gravity. No, that’s all we heard, but there were some ghastly sea states out there.

No, but I think somebody found something funny, because I did hear some vehicular man's laughter.

Last boating movie I saw was "Master And Commander". I'm assuming that, though highly competitive, the race was somewhat less violent.

Thoughts on this tire. Cleaning the cervelo and rear tire looks like it has seen things. Wondering if it would be better not to ride it and just replace it.
