    Do you carry a lock?

    Never. Situational awareness. If I am in a shithole, democratic enclave, I require line of sight to my bike and only stop if life is on the line.

    Did You Ride Today?

    A sad ride. I went home. Did my shortest little loop that I did as a kid. Surprised it was 30 miles. Dad is dying. I guess I used to ride some hellacious distances....no cycle computers back then. I had planned on the medium loop up into NH and down into Ipswich and back. I'm slower. The...

    Did You Ride Today?

    I think Tarzan did 230 miles per day for a year. I did a leisurely 35 miler while the off road rig was getting work done on it. Need to rest up....thinking of a big ride soon.

    Did You Ride Today?

    How many days straight are you planning on doing? Do you have a rain bike? Fenders? 60 days is pretty amazing.

    Did You Ride Today?

    Intervals today. VO2 max kind. Two sets of five. Beautiful day. Spin 16 miles out to my 5 minute hill coming off the river and into dark woods with trees coming in at you, sort of my little pain cave. It usually takes me 5:00-5:10 to go up this hill with 4:50 being my best time ever...

    Did You Ride Today?

    After three pretty hard days in a row, I did a leisurely 20 miler with a stop for fancy coffee. I just enjoyed it. A beautiful day. 78F and no humidity. I actually wore a wool jersey. Digging the new bike but just have to trace down a little itty bitty creak. I tried to be careful building...

    How long should tires last?

    Roubaix Armadillo Elite is $55 bucks but it gives a hell of an ass beating. These tires suck. The Continental GP4000 Sii in 28mm is $45 online. It should last at least 3,000 miles on the rear and probably more. With latex tubes it is very, very fast and pretty comfortable....not the best but...

    Did You Ride Today?

    NICs took almost 2 hours. I took the "old" new to me Pinarello ak61 for 59 miles and 3200 feet of climbing with 217 watts, which is a pretty hard ride for me but not brutal. I wanted to test my "new" bike. The first half was nothing but climbing and I took the river road on the way back. I...

    Did You Ride Today?

    Been building up the magnesium Pinarello. Italian threads. Bottom bracket different. 31.0 mm seatpost. Seriously. Not 30.0 or 31.6. 31.0 mm. Got it rolling. Did a 10 miler. Seems like a a jumper. Th geometry says road bike but the response says sprinter. Wasted much of the day...

    Massachusetts cut in half x 2

    I did a 30 miler in 94 F and like 70% RH. I put some new fast tires on and did some best times. Its the tires for sure, they are fast. Trying to decide if I should do a 24 hour race next weekend down south. I hate the heat and humidity. Sweat was pouring off of me today. Dripping. My...

    Why do we have to guarantee the citizens of the world their religious freedom?

    We do not owe foreign nationals anything. Nothing. As far as who is the moron, who conflates cash for clunkers, highway stimulus, first amendment rights, miranda rights and the kicker....letting criminals out of prison. These are a fine and dandy but I sort of like the second amendment. I...

    Massachusetts cut in half x 2

    When I was a kid, I'd leave the North Shore and go towards Lowell and hop onto route 119 and take it towards Vermont. I used to get to Winchester NH and turn back. Kinda sad I never made Vermont. Mom asked me where I went and I said Winchester. She thought I meant Winchester, Mass. Maybe...

    Did You Ride Today?

    Today was a sad ride like when you broke up with your girlfriend kinda way. I decided to let her go. A Pinarello Dogma Ak61 batted her eyelashes at me. I try to have no more than 6 bikes, 30 firearms and I refuse to admit the number of tires or cartridges. So, I listed my daily trainer on...

    Why do we have to guarantee the citizens of the world their religious freedom?

    Owe? We owe it to the citizens to ensure any who enter are here with noble intentions. When the 99.9% of the just, law abiding Muslims speak out and take action against their heathen brethren, I'll listen to pukes like you.
