Addiction 2023.4

Road Cycling ďIt 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.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

Over what interval, and repeated how often? The dose makes the poison.

Donít know if yíall saw, a pilot sitting in the jump seat tried to bring down an alaskan regional flight last night. This is going to make my commute a nightmare I think. You have to be a qualified, hold a medical, and be employed by an air carrier to sit in the jumpseat. As a commuter I rely on the jumpseat to get to and from work, I wonder if the FAA is going to make the jumpseat obsolete. I canít get based in DC soon enough.

Didn't get soaked though. It was more of an on/off drizzle, in patchy clouds. In moments, it was almost Hawaiian: light drizzle, warm (ish) temps, sun poking through here and there. At times when I was pointed east, the sun would illuminate the showers which provided for a pleasant backdrop.

I am just happy you didnít melt.

Yeah rain, what is that stuff? Wet air or something?

My buddy and I experienced some of that "wet air" stuff yesterday in the Bay Area, too, on the upper climb of Mt. Hamilton. The bottom 3000 feet were pretty nice, but the last 1000 was inside the clouds, very "wet air", only a few feet of visibility. Observatory was at 50F, with about 50 feet of visibility. Did I wear proper kit for this occasion? I did not, just some arm warmers. Probably the slowest Hamilton descent ever, riding the brakes to keep the rims dry, not wearing my prescription glasses, not knowing where the next hairpin turn was, unable to see the rocks on the pavement, trying not to shiver and start a speed wobble. Whee!

The bottom was dry and warmer, so my buddy and I nabbed a couple "old guy" (65-69) Strava segment KOMs. Why not? We hadn't been blasting up the no-visibility climb, so our legs were fresh. More fun!

The bike needed a full wash, as did I. But nobody got hurt. Crazy weather conditions can be fun.

It was cold, dark and windy this morning. Plus all the roads in my usual route are being torn up so had to stumble around to get the mileage I wanted. Cold wind sucks. Itís like riding into a wall. I am going to try and set up my suffer cave in the garage today. I am trying to convince myself that I will use it if itís there but I doubt it. On the plus side if I am in the garage and I get sick of zwift I can easily hop on a bike and go outside.

2 carbon wheel sets just popped up on my craigslist for 150 bucks each. Reynolds and Eastons. I am tempted but they are both Tubular. Why would I hate tubular?

There is a REASON why someone is unloading them cheap.

Tubular is a PITA. Trust me. More trouble than it is worth 98% of the time.

I donít even understand what they are. Iíll prolly pass. I donít need more rim brake wheels, but the price made me ponder.

I saw the headline, but not what he actually did.

Attempted murder. That's going to be a problem on his next job search.

I would imagine he will have bigger problems than finding a job. I bet finding rope for soap is hard in prison.

Not really good ways. Bloating is totally subjective. There are blood tests that are "markers" of systemic inflammation like CRP and ESR but honestly these tests are so nonspecific I don't really like them much.

It would be interesting to see the evidence presented. Does the plane have a big ON/OFF switch?

I think I lose weight because my metabolism speeds up during inflammation-related activity.

My previous witch doctor didn't even bother with them. She just assessed my joint status.

They are the best. However modern man is too weak of will to put in the work of properly mounting one, thus not privy to the rewards.

No, I'm pretty sure MY descent on 1/1/2000 was slower. Same kind of conditions, but with January temps vs October temps. And every stitch of clothing I was wearing soaked with sweat and/or drizzle. I was plenty warm on the climb!

Get a flat* on a ride and you'll see.

*that's too big for sealant to plug.

I suspect he won't have trouble finding a job. One will probably be found for him. Making big rocks into small rocks, for example.
