Addiction 2021.1

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

It’s the day after you really need to worry about. Moderna is anecdotally worse.

My mother got hit pretty hard the two days after her second Pfizer dose.

Seems Volkswagen is about to become "Voltswagen."

Voltswagen or Volkswagen? VW poised to change name in EV pivot (usatoday.com)

Other leather saddles I've used:

Velo Orange Model 6 - Brooks Swift copy, never got used to it
Velo Orange Model 3 - B17 copy, quite comfy but also very heavy and plays a heavy hand aesthetically
Selle Anatomica X - will evet again an exercise in extreme optimism. I put it on before a 200k. It stopped working for me at around 100k I believe . Also very distinctive aesthetically, and not to my liking at all
Well there ya go. I doubt I will ever ride those kinds of distances. When touring, I do 60-80 miles in a full day. Smelling the roses.

Well the bampiolt06 needs to get himself a 2mm allen wrench.

This was all an elaborate plan to talk up an imperial and then have something beyond your control back you out of it, eh? Yeah, I can see through you.












Take the day off/easy.

I hate my Passat with a passion. I finally paid it off and want to get rid off it but I’m trying to be responsible.

And it’s actually incredibly irritating I can’t do one. I have a 75 mile gravel ride with 6700 climbing or something like that it n May and can’t do a century for another 3 weeks

Oof - that's going to be a tough ride even if you can get some more training under your belt.

I prefer it that way. The other potential route I built had about 6k with more frontloaded climbing including a 950 foot climb at mile 20. I don’t know if I could build a century in this area that had less than 4000 feet unless it was mostly MUP

I suppose that it's going to hurt either way (except for waifs like datlas and MoAlpha ) and I do have the tendency to over-cook myself on climbs if I'm fresh. One of these days, I'll get down to 170 and climb like a... like a... like a sprinter.

Im looking forward to hitting some climbs. The short one I used for eFTP I think I took 40 seconds of my PR last time I tried it.

More than halfway through my ride on Sunday, I hit what would be a great hill for setting a new eFTP. I toyed with the idea of burying myself for a 3 min effort, but quickly snapped back to reality and just went with an FTPish effort instead. Shortly thereafter, I turned west and was blasted with headwinds all the way home, so I'd say that I made the right decision.

Hey, it hurts just as much; we just do it faster than we would otherwise, which still feels pig-butt slow in my case.

I think that this is my biggest problem with climbing - it just feels neverendingly slow in comparison to what I'm used to given the effort.
