Addiction LXXIV

Notices
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

I had home made peanut butter rolled up in a flour tortilla. And an apple. When I awaken from my nap I will have my second cup of the day.

I have been to Cleveland maybe 5 times for a total of perhaps 2 weeks if you include Akron. I was watching a movie the other night on TV and with no hints whatsoever except the nondescript look of the downtown, I came to the conclusion it was Cleveland. I was right. I think I did that by realizing it didn't look like any more interesting city I had ever seen. It clearly wasn't Chicago, New York, San Francisco, LA, Philly, etc. It had to be Cleveland. QED

We are currently in a rain pattern. I saw about an hour and a half window in the radar coming up so I quick got everything ready and waited for the rain to stop which it did right on time. Out the door and 10 miles later, rear tire asplosion. Six minutes later, tire is changed but it's starting to sprinkle. Time to bee-line for home. About 7 miles from home, it's now a steady drizzle. 2 miles from home, it's a decent rain. 1 mile from home, it's a deluge.

Best ride this week.

Kudos. Flats and getting wet are part of the deal.

The hi-tech stuff doesn't really appeal to me, mainly because the new cost is ridiculously high.

But I have been using a trainer of the old style for a few years and the advice? Don't try to set time-on and distance records and power output records every time you get on. Also, use them more when you can't go actual cycling on the road or track.

Despite the undoubted negativity this comment will generate, for us Strava remains an outdoor excellent way of recording stuff, and on the indoor trainer Zwift has been good -- but don't get intimidated by be passed by large groups or individuals.

I'm not doing any gravel races this Spring, but our neutral race support team is working a few. The promoter of the Durty Bikes Gravel Series stuck a Go-Pro on the Bosses moto.

Footage from the first two races.

Have fun and take pics, Seedy.

Looks like the advent of the GP 5000 has lowered the price of the 4000s and I just bought a pair in 23mm to get out ahead of the new trend to narrow rubber. It’ll feel good to get the GP 4Ss offa the road bike for a few months.
