Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Crashing in a bike race and having substantial head injuries is frightening. BM has two kids, I think. Good guy.

A coworker blew out his Achilles doing some kind of martial arts thing.

That's why I don't do martial arts.

I had a taco salad at a Moe's restaurant last Friday and opted for tofu instead of meat. I've never tried the tofu there but it looked like it had been grilled and I thought I'd give it a try. I might as well have had them leave it out. Never tasted it.

I'm one of the few who enjoy tofu right out of the package. Done right, it can't be beat for sandwiches. I'm currently using it as a dough conditioner for my bread--keeps it moister longer.

I tried one race, one time. Got dropped at the turn around because I didn't know about the acceleration ahead of time. I wouldn't mind trying it again, but I'm a bit of a purist when it comes to driving somewhere in order to ride a bike. I rode to and from that race.

How old was this guy? I think that speaks more to age. It seems that every time I hear of somebody messing up their Achilles tendon it is some guy over 40.

Frankly, I think a bunch of old mummies riding around in circles is a recipe for disaster. Neither the mental nor physical acuity are there, really (but self delusion is limitless, I understand). Cycling is the most demanding of sports and is not a forgiving mistress when things do go wrong.

I was rather proud of myself for getting out at 7:00 for a 30-mile ride before a family Easter brunch (yeah, I know - we're slackers)... but when I got home, I realized that, in my still-groggy state, I'd ridden with my glasses under straps. Am I honor-bound to delete the Strava activity, or will changing the ride type to "Commute" suffice?

I tore my Achilles playing basketball in my late twenties.

I like tofu OK, but a meat substitute, it ain't.

Under is correct.

You must rename the ride "Fredly Loop".

Ouch.

On a side note, has anyone ever read this warning:

"Ciprofloxacin may cause swelling or tearing of a tendon (the fiber that connects bones to muscles in the body), especially in the Achilles' tendon of the heel. This can happen during treatment or up to several months after you stop taking ciprofloxacin. Tendon problems may be more likely to occur if you are over 60, if you take steroid medication, or if you have had a kidney, heart, or lung transplant."

This always made me think when taking Cipro for a UTI.

Some "rules" are meant to be broken.

Also, what's up with the Strava feed? When I look at riders I'm following, rides are no longer listed in chronological order with most recent activities first.

I think the feed is sleeping in.

@WhyFi 's ride doesn't show in the addiction feed... unless maybe he actually deleted it.
