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

Don't let left vs right mess with you. It is what it is, and I don't know of many that have been able to improve it with much success. I'm 46/54 as a rule, and I make it work.

Got a lawn cut before today's rain storm. No water stops required.

Too much dead time in golf. Plus I'm terrible.

No lawns were mowed here. I did replace an irrigation valve however.

I bought a Stages left arm about 4 years ago and always wondered about my L/R balance. Then, a couple years ago, I got a dual meter and lo and behold, my average was 50.5 left and 49.5 right so not only was I fairly balance but my left was stronger than my right and I’m right footed, legged, or whatever you call it. N my case, a left arm only meter works fine as far as I can tell.

I signed up for lessons after 20 years of off and on playing. After just 3 lessons in to a 10 lesson program, the instructor told me not to come back.

Good thing I was paying lesson by lesson.

You can pay 50 bucks or something to unlock a sort of poor man's version of dual meters on the P2Max spider I've got, but no. My vastus medialis on the left is visibly atrophic from an old L3 root compression and there's not a thing in the world I could do about the 57/43 I predict I'd see if I had a split readout.

He. In law school I summered after my first year at Alcoa. We had a law department golf outing. Only time I have played "real" golf. My tee shot on the first hole sliced way over into the parallel fairway. But to my credit, I did win the competition for the longest putt made on the 9th hole. It was probably about 20'. I stick to mini-golf.
