  1. This is a powerful video, and it brought tears to my eyes.
  2. You can cut to 4:00 and then restart if you want Absolutely NOT @Dirtyhip approved.
  3. ...with "where" being Japan Read the article here on BikeRumor, but the general gist is figure out what you actually might need to see the events - and don't skip the track stuff which can be super fun: There are a few ways to get the Olympic action to your TV, phone, etc. NBC will broadcast the Olympics in the USA, with additional coverage on NBCOlympics.com and the NBC Sports app. Another way to watch the games are on Peacock, NBCUniversal’s streaming service (those who are watching the tour will be familiar with this service). From what we understand, NBC will broadcast the major Olympic events and coverage; if you’d like to see all the action, check out the service’s Tokyo NOW channel. The dedicated channel will begin streaming on July 24, with live competition’s from 6-11 a.m. ET on Tokyo LIVE, followed by Tokyo Gold from 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. PT.
  4. ...but I don't think he quite got what he bargained for.
  5. What the hell is up with Pogacar's hair always sticking up through his helmet?
  6. How the Tour de France disguises the phallic artwork on its route ASO takes measures to hide the unwanted imagery fans paint on the thousands of kilometres of roads on the Grande Boucle turning genitals into owls and butterflies CANADIAN CYCLING MAGAZINE JULY 24, 2019 31 It’s a long-standing tradition for fans to paint the names of their favourite riders on the road. The Tour de France is the biggest platform for this sort of fandom. We’ve seen the names of Julian Alaphilippe, Thibaut Pinot, Peter Sagan and many more emblazoned across alpine roads over the nearly 3,500 km the Tour de France covers. There are also more, let’s say, creative artists who want their artwork to be seen by the biggest television audiences in pro bike racing. Race organizer ASO employs a crew of workers who drive the route ahead of the peloton every day with a bucket of paint. Their task is to creatively alter some of the images painted on the road that ASO would rather TV audiences don’t see. Chief among these images that need some altering are male genitals. The workers who disguise the genitals are the real artists. Cleaning the road surface of these images would be too time-consuming and expensive so instead, the workers add paint turning genitals into owls, butterflies and other creative imagery. The efforts are done so spectators and TV viewers don’t notice the original images. In a video produced by Dutch news agency NOS, the news agency follows two workers as they do their job on the Tourmalet, one of the most famous climbs to feature in this year’s Tour de France.

  7. ... @Dirtyhip does look like Molly Shannon????? I pictured her a couple years older and with a stronger PNW accent.
  8. ...where @donkpow and @Square Wheels's cycling worlds collide! Finally, an indoor trainer "game" that makes one want to ride
  9. ...but with syrup, and by syrup, I mean the FAKE stuff!
  10. We took Smokey on a adventure walk near a popular MTB trail system I often ride. The trail system starts in a county park. As we were walking back to the car I saw this thing. It has several common tools tethered to the post, a pump and a rack to support your bike during repairs. I have never seen such a thing.
  11. @shootingstar could rock the gravel out that way and maybe even get @Dottles to make the short trip up.
  12. About 5,000' of climbing, and then, to cap it off, a KOM!!!!! And a proper @Dirtyhip-type of KOM - all down hill!!!! BOOM! At about the 1:50 mark, you see the turn off to where the downhill section starts. A totally accidental KOM, and also a climb I had done earlier with cold legs, so a nice reward to the end of a ride. Only 211 folks even ride this bit of road, so not really a big "KOM", but you take em where you get em I also imagine Kevin is planning a trip back up to Skyline to retake the lead.
  13. WOOT WOOT!!! I hope you all are as well! Stick to Da Man and his stupid rules!!!!
  14. I love this. I could totally see @Dirtyhip doing this.
  15. I gotta say, I like their van! But not a fan of the black trail stuff. My poor little MTB might snap like a twig!
  16. ...that I am way behind MTB tech and skills I rode this weekend with my buddy at a park with some green, blue, and black trails. He's a regular MTBer over the past 5-10 yrs, while I am a very occasional MTBer. Anyway, I am luckily in far better biking shape, so his massive lead in skills is partially offset by my general fitness. That, though, for the most part goes right out the window when the terrain gets sketchy. His bike is a really nice full suspension Specialized he got a couple years ago. I ride my Trek - a rigid steel "classic" MTB. There is NO comparison between the two bikes, but there is also a 0% chance I am making a jump from my Trek to a "modern" MTB. Anyway, big takeaways from this weekend are: Rim brakes vs disc brakes are an insane difference. My rim brakes are a mere suggestion to stop, but disc brakes are an actual braking system Rigid < hardtail < full suspension. Holy schnizzle is it tough to confidently ride over the stuff that the folks with suspension just motor over. Worlds apart. I ache - a lot - after a MTB ride. I need to adjust my Garmin for MTB rides. Damn auto-pause feature does not make sense when crawling along a climb as I often don't "trigger" a restart - especially in heavy tree cover. That beeping to pause and unpause is demoralizing
  17. A couple weekends ago I went MTBing with my buddy. About a quarter way into the ride, I noticed the front brake (old school rim brakes) was getting soft, so I did a little tension adjustment and kept riding. A little later, soft again! As we were turning around to head home, <bloink> the brake cable snapped at the connector point on the front brake. So, already riding a MTB with less than stellar braking performance, I was stuck riding home through similar terrain as the ride out, but this time with no front brake to use. Not being @Dirtyhip (who likely laughs at using the brakes!), I was - to say the least - at a significant disadvantage to my buddy who is a longtime MTBer with a nice Spec full suspension bike and superior disc brakes. Luckily, for all the downhills, there were uphills, and there I more than make up for my descending ineptitude and tentativeness Got the cables in the mail a few days later and the bike is back to full strength and ready for this weekend. I did only fix the front, so I still need to inspect and/or proactively replace the rear cables.
  18. ...on a very short little Strava segment that I didn't realize was there until a few weeks ago. Four seconds between me and #1. I'm tied with the former Olympian right now, and fine with that. I've done it 519 times, and the first 500 times it was just a piece of trail I rode normally. That has changed!
  19. I think @Longjohn's grandkids might like this in his backyard
