    Diablo again. This time in 1:41, which is more in line with my (lack of) fitness. It got hot early. Now rest until my century on Saturday. :-)

    Did the MS Waves to Wine ride for the first time. The weather was mostly great, though it was pretty toasty near the finish of both days. Saw fellow bf'er ahpook at the end of day 2. The MS Society does a nice job with all the rest stops and support. I highly recommend it for next year!

    We(Los Gatos) used to have a saturday training ride, its sense fallen by the way side. Hopefully we can pick it back up this season. It was a much faster ride, more of a race simulation. We also do a Winter Solstice Century with another team. Its alot of fun and is also race like, attendance varies but is usually 20-50 riders(regroups at turns).

    From what you and other club members have said it seems that the Sunday "social" ride has sped up quite a bit and the Saturday ride has gone downhill.

    very basic program. written in objective c (mac 10.4 something) uses quicktime to render a video with some data parsed from a .tcx file (gps). again, very basic, could think of a few features that should be added.

    on a side note, the company that makes the camera released some sort of gps version. although, i didn't check if any new software came with it. on their website they show an area to the right of the video where map/speed/elevation are displayed. http://contour.com/promos

    How do you like the camera? I was debating between countour HD and GoPro HD. Was leaning towards Contour because of the form factor and less of a fish eye affect.
    I see hills.... Bring them on!!!

    i like it a lot.

    video quality is really nice. you can configure size/bitrate/fps. the fov depends on the size you select. 1080p will give you a slightly different angle than 720p.

    the mounts are ok. they give you enough to get creative with. haven't tried the handle bar mount or attaching it to a bike helmet.

    on bumpy roads it can be a bit noisy, at least the way i have it attached (right side of head tube)

    mostly use it at 720p/60fps



    at 1080p/30fps you should probably expect some jello effect



    also works great in snow which was the thing that really sold me on it.

    Wednesday, I dragged myself out into the heat to get the last 13 miles needed to make 500 miles for the month. I planned on taking a 2-3 day break from riding.

    Thursday, Lanceoldstrong dragged me out an hour and a half before twilight and squeezed another 25 miles out of me, to get me over the "3,000 miles for the year" mark.

    Not much to brag about really, but big numbers for me.

    Hit 5000 miles for the year on a 63 mile Morgan Territory/Highland Rd loop out from and back into Concord.
    Midland came along and we had great fun trading pulls from the bottom of "The Plunge" all the way home.

    3000 miles for BBM, 5000 for Lance... That's very serious and amazing mileage!

    Umm... Down to earth I just passed 1600 miles for the year this weekend. Meaning I am only 46 miles short for my PR established last year. With close to 3 months remaining I am aiming at 2000 for the year, better yet 2010 to match the calendar. Next year goal at least 2011, then 2012... That's sounds reasonable and doable.

    I uset to think when I got too old/feeble/fat/lazy to ride the Mountain, I'd get a Vespa or something. Now I think I'll get a trailer on the beach. Rode up and down Doheny and surroundings in San Clemente and I could definitely adopt that lifestyle.

    how you did double centuries with so little riding is beyond me... 10% of your yearly mileage in 1 day!?

    I only have 2,160 YTD. I can definitely tell my base is not the same as last year.

    Call it jersey lust!

    Joking aside I wished I had more base mileage during those doubles. They would have surely made a big difference in the last 50 miles. But I had good company (the best motivator), I chose venues that offered outstanding scenery (keeps the mind from getting bored), and, yes, I fought pain, stomach aches, and a wanting to quit mind for many long miles. I learned to listen to my body and worked with what I had. At the end I felt great about the journey, I never tried to do the best time yet I always had sufficient cushion to beat the time cutoffs even with my spill at ESD. Somedays I wonder if I really did it and how I could do it but, heck, a jersey will soon be in the mailbox.

    Garmin says I have 3,512 road miles. I sometimes forget it, so it's really more. I also have a ton of commuter miles.
    Those doubles KILL me for days after. I don't know how gpelpel can do what he does. But he's right, it is indeed all about wanting the jersey.
    WANTED: Not a darn thing. I've got it all. Life is good.

    Good to hear I am not alone.

    Aside from the darn prostatitis that kept me 4 weeks off the bike after Solvang, the regular after-double symptoms have been feeling weak and shoulder/neck pain that last a bit more than a week. Amazingly lower back and leg pains have been non existent.

    It will be coming back on real soon. Racing season is pretty much over and we will be preparing for the Winter Solstice ride in December. Im guessing in the next few weeks, although I know they rode this past weekend out of Los Gatos.
