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

Another hot/humid ride in the books. I am glad I got it in early, it's already around 90F out.

This is a question to the IT people here, especially those in IT security. I hate having so many passwords, but what drives me NUTS is that many of my accounts insist that I CHANGE my password every month or two. It's ridiculous. And I can't "recycle" an old password or toggle back-and-forth between two different ones.

The end result is that I have to have a piece of paper with all my passwords written down. And between work-related systems I use and non-work systems, we are talking EASILY 25-30 passwords.

Is this nuts? Or am I just getting old?

I realized that 90% of the enjoyment occurred when the coffee is piping hot, and the aroma hits me in the first few sips.

Going from 2-3 cups/day to just a couple ounces is a big reduction in caffeine.

Most bang for the buck, basically.

Hi All!
I've signed myself up to do the 400 mile Erie Canal Ride and I'm interested in recording and sharing the ride. I know there are GPS bike computers, but I'm not interested in elevation, pace and heart rate and all that. Just the route interests me. Is there a basic bike GPS that records, saves and shares this? Also, I don't want to spend a ton of money.

Can you just use free Strava app on your smart phone?? That’s what I use. Issue may be battery life.

Yeah, I'm trying to avoid the battery drain as there is limited opportunity to charge devices at the end of the day. And since I'm not in elite shape, I'll not be among the first to finish each day's ride.

Don't you mean an hour earlier? Bermuda is East of the east coast. Is this why so many aircraft and ships have been lost in the Bermuda Triangle?

No they are later. The sun gets there earlier, so the time is later.

Same here. I have a game tomorrow so no exertion the day before, not even a brisk walk, not even to mow the lawn. At this age we don't recharge fully overnight.

I almost always drink half-decaf. Can't stand the wired feeling . . . nor running to the bathroom to void fluids every half hour.

Speaking of recharging:

So the wife and I both charged our iPhones to 100% last night before bedtime. When we awoke this morning her battery was down to 55% while mine was only down to 88%. This not only demonstrates the drain the app Find My Friends puts on the devices, but also the fact Mrs BD needs to get her older, weak battery replaced with a new one. (My phone is just 8 months old, her phone is like 3 years old.)

Same. Down 2# this morning and I'm sure it's all water loss. Not enough water yesterday.

Yes. At about 2 years old the iPhone 6 batteries pretty much all go kaput. I think I paid $35 for an installed replacement at Batteries+

It's just semantics, choice of words, you're looking at the glass half empty and I'm looking at it half full. When it's 9am in NY it's only 7am in Texas and 6am in LA, right? So when it's 12am in Bermuda it's only 11am in NY, right? They reach midnight earlier than we do.

Doesn't make you a bad person.

Yes that's what she has, an iPhone 6, she's going to get a swap out as we speak.

Oof. Wet ride. There was a bit of ambiguity in the group ride convo this morning - one other guy and myself took the "100% of light rain" forecast to mean that we were a go, everybody else took it to mean that the ride was scrapped. We were wet after waiting around at the meet-up spot, anyway, so we decided that we might as well ride. It wasn't cats and dogs, but it was fairly heavy rain the whole 40+ miles. At times when we had to single-up and I was on his wheel, I felt like I was doing the breast stroke and I had to turn my head to breathe. Good ride, though - glad we HTFUd.
