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

You'll see a lot of BMC/Team Sky gear for sale on eBAY because they've changed their kit manufacturers. If you like team gear go on eBAY around Sept onwards.

There are still lots of old BMC Hincapie stuff on eBAY up for grabs.

Finally getting back into it. Haven't had a bike in nearly 2 years. I'm excited to get back into it and get back in shape. Note - This is how the guy I bought it from had it set up. There will be many changes.

Emergency food due to unanticipated bonking.

Hah. I would have gotten the 12-23 for the supertight spacing but I need the 11 for particular race that has a long, slight decline that typically has a tailwind. But, yeah, the biggest hill here is a freeway overpass.

I just received an email from Active GearUp. Usually just delete them, but the subject mentioned helmets, so I took a look. Ended up ordering the Orbea Thor helmet (in black), for $80 (free shipping):
https://www.orbea.com/us-en/gear/thor/

It does look a little funky, but heck...just riding I look a little funky, so what the heck. As long as it will help protect my head if I fall, that's all that matters. Helping to keep me somewhat comfortable during rides is also key. My old helmet is fine this time of year, but gets a bit toasty once the heat turns on.

I actually got the same Giro Savant up above, but this helmet may help discract from my enourmous head.

Picked up this wired speed/cadence computer from the LBS, but the wire/sensor design is absolutely atrocious. Taking it back and getting the next model down for $10 less that only does speed. Don't really need cadence.
