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

The Mariners are taking care of business so far tonight. I'm hoping for wildcard mayhem.

Putting the garmin varia on hold. The aero bars that come with the madone are to wide for my current light. Unless one of you guys/gals have an idea for me to mount it to the bontrager mount, it’s looking like I will have to go the bontrager pro ion light, with the flare rear light.

I have watched countless reviews comparing the garmin 530 vs the wahoo bolt. Originally I planned on going bolt but again, the mount for the madone won’t work with it. To make things easier I think I will just go with the 530. I know set up is suppose to be a pain, but maybe I can get the guys at trek to help me with it.

As far as the power meter for the Cervelo, looking at just a left arm, between 4iii and stages is one more favorable than the other?

The day after the ex emailed the club and they changed the driving directions. IIRC, the signed clearance is 8’ 6”. I later measured my bike on the roof of the Mazda. 8’ 4”.
Yes same start location. The directions to the start point out the low clearance issue and give alternate directions for people with roof racks.

ps no roof rack for the Saturn. Those in the know understand the bike belongs INSIDE the car whenever possible.

Not sure what the problem is - can you link to the bars/stem? You want a gps unit on top and light below? What kind of quick release mount do you have on your current light?

On the Domane, which had a Blndr mount, there were adapters for various light mounts, including GoPro-style, which had become a popular method of converting.

As far as the Bolt, it's the same mount as Garmin, just turned 90⁰. On some mounts, you can unscrew the mounting plate, turn it, and screw it back in. Otherwise, you can look for an alternate mounting plate. And there's always Shapeways - users have designed/uploaded plenty of converters/adapters that you can print out.

Rooting for a 4 way tie. The Mariners haven't been in the playoffs since the early 00's so they are the natural feel good story.

About a half hour before I needed to get up, I was jolted awake by a sound that always sets alarm bells ringing, that "hakka hacka hacka haaack" of the cat spitting up.

She wasn't on the bed, my primary concern, and I was tired, so I said "**** it," and went back to sleep. I looked around when I got up, but couldn't find the spot, so now the family will have a morning of stepping lightly until one of us finds a surprise.

It was a terrifying incident. The clearance issue popped into my head after I entered the underpass. Slammed on the brakes. Eileen got out of the car and walked along as I continued forward very slowly. My heart was still pounding when I got to the registration table.

The first year we made it to Nottingham. Left the rest stop even though it was raining a bit. Got about a half a mile and it got heavy so we turned around and went back to the start. The second year was extremely windy. Only did the metric, which skips the hardest climbing. Still, a very nice ride.

Mazda couldn’t fit both bikes inside. My Forester can.
