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 can't remember what I ate before becoming violently ill on Saturday afternoon, regardless, I'm still nauseous.

Rode 90 mi one-way to visit family at the top of the Inland Empire in SoCal. I had a gentle tailwind for much of the central miles so it was nice and speedy. There are sections of busy boulevard in Corona and Ontario with no bike lane, but outside of that it's a nice, calm, open route paralleling I15. Did the same ride a couple years ago.

Also I hit 12.5 hours last week, with a 3 month old at home! Probably going to be peak volume for the year surrounding her birth lol. It helped to have Xmas and NYE morning in there, with family around to support Liz.

Happy New Year everyone!

It's some strange terrain here. Boulder Valley can be downright crisp in comparison to other parts of the metro. Then you get into the foothills, and it actually warms up a wee bit. Lyons and Loveland were downright balmy in comparison. I brought my whole cycling wardrobe yesterday... I wear a vest not for warmth as much, but more for the pockets. I refuse to be a typical Rando, and bring a bag big enough to carry enough **** to rebuild a bike, not to mention the four course meal, and again, the whole cycling wardrobe.

Indeed. For me further, having another fully 100% trusted person makes a huge difference, and also took some of the load off of AG. And the final Austin house had been a string of nightmares from the start, not leastwise being where I broke my hip and then went almost full hermit. We moved out, cleared the mental sludge, and AG kicked my ass into running outdoors and racing and walking to the farmers' market and getting outside a lot. Much easier than trying to do that in the place where all the damage had occurred. Luckily we were able to just do that.

Not college, but the flyovers at Indy and Daytona are the stuff.

My wife just left the house, walking down to the train station to buy us tickets. They went on sale for the first time from this station, yesterday afternoon. Today is the first day we can actually board the train here. We’ve taken the dogs for an evening walk, daily, throughout the construction process. We saw the groundbreaking and we saw the first trial runs. And watched the bridges get built, and the tracks get laid. That first ride will be a nice treat. We dream about doing out and back day trips, once the full complement of trains and routes comes to fruition. The station is in the neighborhood of a half km from the house, on the road, less as the crow flies. Change is in the offing……

I am 65 and never had food poisoning...or giardia I wonder if I have developed a natural resistance to it as I grew up drinking from rivers and streams and even irrigation ditches....or maybe I drink enough alcohol that it kills all that negative stuff.

We finished "Leave the World Behind" last night. It was enjoyable, pretty creepy. There were aspects that felt disjointed or incomplete, but kinda neat in concept as well. It sort of feels like a zombie movie, but without the abject gore and violence; it's more of a thriller.

I think it was someone here who recommended it, not sure who.

they do a daily fly over at Sturgis (or at least used to have not been there for a few years) and it is insane...once you know it is coming you sit back and watch the people who are not expecting freaking out lol...certainly the sound of freedom...

They have flyovers at the Armed Services Bowl game in Fort Worth that are pretty cool. They also do flyovers during the regular season TCU games. I guess it helps to have a Naval station in town.

Have no problem with that considering that most schools have ROTC programs.
