  1. The fed government is pretty tight with ensuring those are exposed to ionizing radiation are monitored and their doses are measured shiftly, monthly or quarterly. There are quarterly and yearly limits that are not exceeded for ionizing radiation dosage. weird side note, nuclear workers who are routinely exposed to low level ionizing radiation have cancer rates lower than the rest of the population. Most likely is due to the small sample size of the population.
  2. The only kind of radiation that can cause somatic changes ( damage DNA) is ionizing radiation.
  3. HEB has a pretty good protein bread that another cyclist told me about that is available at the Tech Ridge and Lakeway locations. It seems that I can maintain my current weight without effort, if I want to drop to better power to weight ratio I have to do Keto. I did keto a year ago for a few months and dropped 10=15 lbs easily. I've worked on portion control and there is an effort/ROI that doesn't seem worth it to me. Currently working myself into the mental space to go Keto again. Post ride local beer is a real sacrifice. Those that Keto, what do you do pre ride? If I eat a calorie dense breakfast- example McDonald's Bagel Egg and Cheese or pancakes - I can ride for hours with a an hourly gel and a shake every 2 hours. When I go light on my pre ride meal, I bonk at the 90 min mark and no amount of nutrition fixes the hazy-lazy feeling.
  4. LOL. I'll buy one when I'm 80. It's nice to have options.
  5. Ok, we are down 13 lbs, my attempts to join a team killed the desire to race and group ride tho. [emoji16]. Seems I'm content to lone ride it the rest of my time in Austin. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk

    Thank you for all the great trail guidance. This trip was surreal. The trails were beautiful and interesting. Excited to be home, alarm at 4am will be way too soon.
  7. Vegas MTB



    and better than anything, if you go to the Grand Canyon while in Vegas, keep right on driving into Flagstaff and ride Schultz Pass, that's actually great riding! Fact:Flagstaff was Tom Walton's inspiration for Bentonville AR, it's really fun riding and free camping too.

      Looks like this comment was out there for a while, geez. 

       Yep we hit up Bears, Bootleg and Blue Diamond.  Love Vegas, the city is set up perfectly for a MTB Vaca.   Eat till your stuffed, ride till your starving, hit up another buffet and sleep to do it all the next day.   We also hit up Gooseberry Mesa in Utah.   I hear that they also have gambling other entertainment, maybe next trip

    Anyone have any advice about riding in Vegas? Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  9. Not us. We had to drive out there to just make sure it was shitty weather Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  10. We are thinking of traveling to El Paso between Xmas and New Year- weather dependent in Arkansas. Pretty excited to see the rest of the Chihuahua Desert. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  11. Do you still have these? I'd like to see if they fit me. We have a l set of the 661 and they are a little too big for me. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  12. Geez. I want the 73k acres that border the state park. I suppose one could put a solar plant on the property to make income out there. As much as I looooove west Texas, I think one could get board at the lack of variety in trails. I may have more luck talking Barry into the land next to Revelie.

  13. Thanks, BSS seems right for me. Got my touring bike and mountain bike frame from them. Thanks for the guidance. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  14. Thank you for the information, there is a lot to process here. It will take me a while to consider all the information here. I'm not particularly a bad ass rider, and at 41, I'm pretty satisfied with my 9-5(or 6-6 in my case). Any racing I do is purely a hobby. I just switched over to 29er from 27.5+ for 10 months. Before that I rode a 26 for about 8 years (in Rochester, and Ithaca). I'm finding the slacker set up makes some trail features less intimidating. This may be a set up I feel comfortable trying an Enduro race. I also changed my diet to get faster climbing. I cringe at the motivation to finally drop 15 lbs, but I'm pretty satisfied with my downhill speed and flat speed. If I want to go faster, I have to carry less potential fuel. I learned that November 18th. If I want to be successful in endurance, I also have to start an upper body strength training. Thanks again for all the great reference information. I may check out Pedlars Pass. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  15. Greetings Forum, I'm thinking about trying a few races this year and I'm wondering about these bike teams I see. Those that race with a team, what are the benefits? How did you select your team? We moved to Texas from upstate NY, and I never saw any valve in racing as the only woman in my age group. I'd seriously cringe thinking of standing alone at a podium accepting a participation trophy. Most social activities were usually centered around the local imba chapters. It's so different here, having a larger population. But enough back story Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
