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

I have serious doubts they would be available off the shelf, but I could indeed be wrong. I have been in the past. If I remember, I’ll check when I’m next in the city. Trying to back away from online shopping for a bit.

I’ve decided, finally, to go for a ride. The weather is just too beautiful day after day after day. I have become lazy. I would like to do the 36 mile loop I did with Alan, but may cave to the old favourite 22 miler. Vamos a ver.

I was laid out all day yesterday with sinus pressure and aches. Went to bed Tuesday evening at 11pm and finally got out of bed around 4pm. Back in bed by 10pm and woke up around 9 this morning.

I do suggest you test, if you have not done so. I lay odds 50-50 it's covid. Goes up if you have had close contact with someone that was sick last week.

Simon is teething again. He has started this screaming thing. It’s enough to make me want to rip my hair out.

Also he has no patience, he is never satisfied with what he has, and his poop is the worst smelling thing on this planet.
I should have named him Bam Jr.

Man you were totally right. The first day was a haze, yesterday the depth of the soreness really kicked in. I am quite sore today as well. Gonna try to skip the oxy today and just go off acetaminophen and see how I fare. Maybe an ibuprofen as well.

Wait, so they have more phases of really intense screaming later on as well? Great.

I remember the first time Lilly full-on screamed like that. Of course it was during the first night when I watched her alone so Liz could go out to dinner with my SIL. Scared the crap out of me. Now at least I know that that sort of intensity doesn't last too long, or is really all that frequent, but man that takes some getting used to. Shes 13 weeks old.

Don't mean to be serious or concerning, and it is rare, but it is bad, and preventable, so worth an ask and a test if you get there.

Interesting to see how each kid has a different disposition sometimes. Lilly is a pretty chill baby most of the time. But she'll get like full on red in the face and screaming once a week or so.

Of course not. That's how parents get suckered in to having a second kid.

From my experience...Parenting will test every bit of patience, self-control, and determination you have. Just when you think you have things figured out, they grow into a new phase and change the game. There will be times when you feel like you have no idea what you're doing. This is totally normal...and will be worth it.

no issues with the inexpensive RideNow tubes purchased from Aliexpress

( my RideNow tubes have different valve stems than pictured above )

just had issues with Aerothan valve stems - and user error partly to blame

gotta be careful not to over inflate before installation - apparently this has been an issue with some (?) …

I like that the tpu tubes hold air well - as good as a butyl tube … and maybe slightly better than a lightweight butyl tube

at one time / years ago - I ran latex tubes in my bikes … primarily Air-B … had to pump them before every ride

I still run latex in my road/crit racing wheels and TT wheels. Purportedly lowest rolling resistance.

But that's it, butyl or TPU in the other tubed wheels. Got a nice light set of Aeolus Pro 3 TLR's on my daily driver (TCR) that I run TPU in now.

I'm doing just fine*.

Two pieces of pain management advice from a former medical intern who valued his sleep: 1. Until you're sure you're out of the woods, take your meds on a set schedule and stay ahead of the pain. 2. Ibuprofen and acetaminophen have different mechanisms of action and are not additive in their toxicities, so they can be safely alternated at their minimum dosing intervals. This is very effective.

I have had a spectacularly unpleasant rhinitis all week, but I can WFH. Need to test before we go away for the weekend.

Tried something different in Zwift, the "Royal Pump Room 8" course in Yorkshire.




It was fun. Fast, scenic, constantly rolling but not grueling, and this old climber has-been grabbed the Yorkshire KOM jersey with a mere 3.8 W/kg effort.

Damn. I am so sorry. I, too, was recently wondering what had happened to her, but I didn't want to ask.

nice terrymorse! always fun to get a jersey.

That segment looks fun, I can rip the hell out of a few minute long climb, above my paygrade from an FTP perspective. I'll have to go for that one sometime.
