Addiction LXXVIII

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

Best sign at the march; “VEGANS FOR BLM”. Nothing like killing two issues with one sign.

Boy free Strava sure is stripped bare now. I got a PR this morning and didn't know it til I tapped on the segment. No more gold/silver/bronze next to the segment, you gotta tap on it to see

I'm amazed they even let you see that.

I did decide to go pay for TrainingPeaks, since I discovered missing that more than Strava once my coach stopped giving me premium when I cancelled until next season.

Achievements are showing for other people. I don't believe you earned one.

Somehow I don’t think so

And it was damn amateur hour out on the MUP this morning. At the start of my second loop down the trail I saw two people sitting fixing a wheel; when I asked if they were ok they asked if I had a pump. It turns out B had already stopped to help A, and between them they had one CO2 that had been left screwed into the chuck and slowly leaked out, and was fused to the chuck. I used my chuck and CO2 to inflate the tire and... it immediately popped because he hadn't checked the tire, and the tire had a good 1/2" gash in the sidewall from hitting whatever he hit, which also had driven a spike of clincher bead into the tire. Tire shot, new tube shot, rim likely shot, and he had no idea on anything.

Meanwhile, before even trying my CO2, I hear a crash behind me, because some tri girl out with one of the big local groups wiped out. She stone-cold ignored the 4-5 people asking if she was ok and rode on, so I guess she was, but wow.

In the end I bailed halfway through lap 3 because I couldn't take it any more.

Must be a glitch. I see it showing a cup on my June 3 ride.

​​​​Today I got PR on Robin Lane, but no achievement shows.

Probably. Mind, it only counts outdoors and 72*+, so even my sweltering trainer rides did nothing.

And yes, it takes months to acclimate fully.
