    Nice pics, but they don't count cause Gina is not in them.
    Thanks

    Hey, that's essentially the weightloss plan that I use.

    Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.

    Good to see you back, and glad to know that you are slamming the hills, as usual. I don't know how you climb like that. I love hills the most, but am also one of the slowest people on group rides, no matter what kind of aerobic shape I'm in. You are an animal!

    I've also been trying to lose some weight. I've been eating between 1600-1800 calories a day, and finally got off my big butt last month and started riding 5 days per week. This past Saturday, I showed up for a local group ride, only to find out that it was a 60-miler with about 4,800 feet of climbing. Between my lower calories, and not having anything but water to take up there, no place to buy anything up that canyon, I bonked big-time. The last 8-9 miles took FOREVER. It took lots of mental effort just to go 12-14 mph on the flats. Meh.

    It was a wake-up call. I need to do more hills. I did a rolling 56 miler yesterday, a 34 mile flatland ride today. I think that I've recovered enough to go on another hill ride tomorrow. More hills. Do it.

    Take care.

    Thanks Pinyon! Yeah, I eat well the night before and the morning of. Plus hydrate hydrate hydrate, starting the day before. The 20 mile climbe we ride doesn't have any water sources so you're on your own. Lots of good planning.

    The mtn pics you see, that's all there is! No stores, waterhoses, fountains, nothing, just mountains. Gotta plan ahead!

    Last 5 miles of the climb, I was out of water. But I know the course so I was ok knowing what was ahead!
