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

Last season you started posting a bunch of scores, as you are now. By June the season was a disaster and you stopped doing it. LOL

I forgot my wallet today at the restaurant we went to for dinner. Luckily it was safely recovered by my server. When I picked it up, I gave her all the cash contained therein.

This isn't the first time. I'm worried about this. I also have a very bad short term memory. My excuse is I worked 5 hours today scrubbing floors - bathroom and garage. Also pulled some weeds and srubbed mildew off of a brick wall on the side of my house. I was going nonstop from 9:30 to 3:00.

I've got a full day tomorrow working on things to get the house ready for sale. I'm too old for this s***.

They had a decent second half and finished slightly below .500 and I don't remember what you claim. I do have a poor memory.

They were 35-33 the last 68 games - respectable.

Vol needs more updates. Maybe after the 4th inning and 7th inning stretch reports in addition to final scores.

Add another 10' of 40"/20" So, 4x10' 40/20 2x10' 10"/50" 1 hour tempo with burst every 3 minutes. You should be well rested.

Well done on the reward.

I'm not sure what to say about it happening too often. At least you recognize it and can take steps. Biker wallet with a chain, ftw.

Roscoe also for the win.

Looks like the host of the baby shower (daddy-to-be) paid us, about 100 bucks each, for a couple hours of music. That's quite generous! Time to go spend it on bike stuff.

yeah, we called that a chain drive wallet. My dad used one for his gas station, auto repair business BITD. it was cool.it was full size to hold bills without folding. A biker wallet is smaller so that could be the answer.

Told Liz. She says, we both worked for it since she watched baby. Fair enough. We'll get some dinner with it instead at a $$$ kinda place, or dinner and a bottle of wine at a $$ place.

Fortunately, we have an expert who can settle this.

MoAlpha in your medical opinion did DougRNS forget his wallet because he was scrubbing floors this morning?

They did respond when I called them out. If they want to do that late in the ride and just go home I'm fine with it. But early on a "friendly" ride is a bit much.

Our club had banned e-bikes some time ago but they've crept in and everyone is ok with it as long as they're safe. The dangerous woman was there today and I guess the president spoke to her because she is better but still doesn't have pack skills. She spooked people today.

For the most part I'm fine with e-bikes and they can be great for some riders but sometimes I wish they upheld the ban on club rides.

Whatever works for your schedule. Recovery, 5x5', 4x10' threshold-5' rest between, Inferno, recovery or rest day.
