Addiction 2022.1

Notices
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

It's the internet, you did 400w for 4 hours JRA.

The jacuzzi has been a lifesaver. First thing in the morning and the stiffness is gone. A couple times during the day to keep things loose.

In my mind’s eye, seeds’ glasses repair looks like nerd glasses with tape in the middle.

Looks really nice!

See above. All gutters and downspouts are “basura.”

Seeds doesn't have a vain bone in his body. Much to the chagrin of Mrs. Seeds

Decided to try brevet pace partner today. I have a lot of pent up rage at my job at the current moment.

Started me right at the volcano climb, which you all know I excel at climbing……. I hung for about 6 miles. Stopped when I started feeling pressure in my knee, and realizing it was more work than fun.

Spent the rest of my time with cadence. I find cadence is way too easy, but brevet is way to hard. Wish there was a goldilocks version.


Most of the snow is cleared off the roads but the temperature has already dropped to 24 degrees. I am hoping to ride early in the am but I would be lying if I wasn’t concerned about the ice. main roads are clear, but getting out of my neighborhood will be a challenge. I have to leave again tomorrow, would like to get one decent outdoor ride before then.


LAJ i’m in denver tomorrow night.

That would have been hard to notice without a sharp eye. I’m sure the input was invaluable.

All that more money carries a price tag. It always does.

Today we took a river trip in the Sumidero Canyon. At one point the sheer sides were 1000 meters high and the water was 100 meters deep. We later found out the river is dammed for hydroelectric power. It produces half of the entire country's power. A fun trip. Tomorrow is the last day, a museum. And more importantly, the last night.
