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

That's why.

Taint that the truth.
Guess I will have to change my avatar. Let me know when you put the dottage mobile on Craiglist.

Congrats on your recovery...
PS: I am south vacationing for a couple of weeks and been doing a lot of walking on the beach and lap swimming in the pool. I believe getting off the bike and doing others things is a positive to rebalance the body. I don't ride much in the winter and believe it to be a good thing.

Glad you are back to logging miles, Pcad, things just weren't the same around here.

35º F. Ride on, Pcad. It got down into the teens two days ago (37º today), so I busted out the Bar Mitts. Winter riding rocks, especially when you have the gear for it.

It blows here, too. Last night it was blowing 8-9 mph out of the south and was about 50 degrees.

Regained my health just in time for prime winter riding weather.

The Pcad Cycling Zen may be returning.

This feeling. That's why I ride. The fred vs. road nazi 41/33 sturm und drang is total effing white noise.
My zen is returning too! I think winter is a great time to get back into the swing of things because there aren't too many other riders around. I've finally found out for sure that I have been suffering acid reflux and the chest pains are disappearing faster than I expected with good dietary adjustments. The lack of pain while riding has already lead me to push harder than I have been doing in the past year and most exciting is that I now know it is not cardio related so I can get even more active which actually helps improve any prior cardio issues.

Taiwan is a climbing kind of place and I'm recovering quickly enough to be able to try the hard climbs soon. That's when I become a real cyclist again.
