    Chip Seal sucks

    They are chip sealing my road today. I hate chip seal. That is all.

    I feel for ya.
    I did a century yesterday and a stretch of it (small in comparison to 100mi) was chip seal. Sucked. So numb afterwards. I was riding the painted stripe to get some relief.
    I think if it were my street, i'd be ordering larger tires to offset it.
    No lugs, no care.

    Thanks. I ride 35mm already. What I really hate is the dust, and the stone chips getting thrown up by cars as they pass by.

    I've got an MS150 coming up, and there's usually at least 25 miles of fresh chip-seal each day. Not may favorite part of the ride.

    3/4 or more of all the roads that I ride on are chip sealed. Riding on fresh chip seal sucks.
    It is not about the destination. It is about the journey getting there.
    Competitors work until they get it right, but champions work until they can't get it wrong.
