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

Philly under a bottled water advisory. Chemical plant spilled something into a creek that flows into the Delaware. It’s basically latex, and it was only about 8,000 gallons. Sounds like an overreaction. Friend says there has already been some runs on bottled water.

Had a bagel with a schmear in the middle of today’s ride, in addition to my usual Clif Bar, as part of my effort to fuel better. I ate it standing up outdoors, not at a table surrounded by beautiful people, the way big john eats his pizza. Really helped the ride home.

Speaking of which, I really love a good bialy, but they are even scarcer than an authentic bagel.

Windy Tuesdays are pizza ride days. We ride in front of the San Gabriel mountains because they block the north winds and the pizza by the slice place is on the way back.
Other Tuesdays take us near a Noah's Bagels. I usually get an ancient grain bagel, toasted with a schmear. But our most common Tuesday route takes us out to the boonies to a country market and we usually just get something packaged there.

And seriously, most people should go have a good read of the actual history thereof. This is one of the cases where a classical education is quite useful.

After yesterday's debacle I wasn't sure what to do today. A friend from the other club posted she was going to ride 30ish miles today and was seeking riders to go with her. Perfect. I love riding with her, her club is not focused on dropping people, and when I ride with them it's always fun. Except it was forecast to be even windier than yesterday.

Our house shook all night, stuff was flying around the yard, and this morning I thought the ride would be called off. I wrote to her and she assured me so I drove out to the ride start. She was there in her car and said it was too windy and she would not be riding. It was also chilly but 2 women and 3 other guys showed up so we went for it.

The leader found a bunch of long, steep grades to climb which helped make the wind a non-factor and I had a great time. It seemed like the 6 of us were well matched. Maybe I should stop riding with the old club.

Although the front low profile, rear wide profile setup is interesting on a smaller frame.

I found out today that my hiking fitness runs out around 7-8 miles. Today's route was around 11 - at least according to Strava.

Hiked trail 6 miles which according to the route planner was supposed to be 4, but a comment indicated it was 5. Lots of steep ups and downs, but ended at a nice waterfall. Sie and I decided to just walk the road back since we were pretty shredded by then. A good decision - heading back the way we came would have added a lot of time.

Nice early spring views:




Was very steep at times:


Virginia Hawkins Falls:

But the best part was seeing a salamander for the first time

Anyone notice the KOM and mileage leader for the week?

My friends and I are plotting a double metric century+ (130 miles) for next weekend, weather permitting.
