c'mon folks, I though the old folks home was self-deprecating humor; didn't realize there may be truth to it

I'll get this started. Got a SRM for my MTB. Extravagent? Yes, but i don't plan on riding my road bike outdoors much in the near future, so it's all on my MTB from now on

Lucky you.

We rode some beautiful country today. 60 miles, very quiet roads, SAGged by the menfolk.



Our route today took us through the Lockwood Valley north of LA, to Ojai via Mount Rose Highway. Tomorrow’s an easy 30 mile ride from Ojai to Santa Barbara, some of which will be on the bike path the runs along the PCH. Lunch in Santa Barbara and then the dogs get to go to the dog beach.

Post season riding is sweet.

53F at ride start but it got warm, in the 90s at the top of the climb. Typical SoCal long ride with a 40 degree temperature swing. We were at 5000 ft elevation at the ride start, and a little higher coming over some of the passes.

Day two to Santa Barbara was cool and overcast, really great riding day. Ave temp was 61F. Sweet.

It was a great weekend, we had a lot of fun.

@Heathpack, enjoy that post season!! Base riding, too.

I'm just getting started in my racing. Masters Track Nats is in two weeks. I ship the bike to Pennsylvania tomorrow, fly out on the 10th. I'm feeling good. My ribs don't bother me a bit, I'm back on form and then a little, and I'm fat. I guess I'm ready!

I'm still in northern NJ. Morristown. Was actually in Allentown yesterday

Only thing is that the World Cup final is on Sunday as well, same day when @Racer Ex has a team sprint and a team pursuit

I'm probably not more than 25 minutes from you. Though you probably don't want to meet me. I'd card you for access to the old folks home.
