    Not 3:34, 2:44. Still, the KOM leaders were 1:24 or something. I was 24th out of 39 on the leader board.

    mikewaters As someone that took the plunge after a lot of hemming and hawing, I understand.

    First solid ride in a while (and I was on Zwift). Felt motivated, worked hard, climbed off the bike super hot and fatigued.

    Heh, downloaded the ride. 130w, 136bpm, 66rpm, 94 minutes. Apparently...

    My brother asked me about his wife's riding. She's a runner, she was thinking of duathlons, but couldn't get the hang of riding the road bike. My brother (who, like me, grew up pedaling as we spent...

    I went back a page because this felt like it could apply to me. I mean, okay, it could, but it didn't.

    I got laid off whatever from my last IT job. They gave me my year end bonus, about 6 months...

    A thought. Generally speaking, unless you got dropped on a straight, it's usually cornering that gets you dropped on a descent. That's sort of the canary in the coal mine thing - if you're getting...

    I imagine that you'll see massive improvements in your power after you start racing. You should try it, ideally a midweek training series (cheaper, typically less intense, typically more relaxed...

    Leave on until the stuff underneath needs to get cleaned, then replace.

    First set doesn't last long, third set pretty long (days?), 4th or 5th set should be last for most road rash.

    On sprinting, there's no real definition of a sprint other than it's a group of riders contesting the finish. About the only thing I can do is sprint and I've done some pretty massive efforts and not...
