  1. Thanks so much Cody!!!! There are so many trails out there, it's awesome to have someone that can share their experience in detail. Man, I love a new trail experience. I was in Telluride in 01 and was blown away by the landscape. I can't wait to see this side and the lushness that Texas doesn't have. Barry and I will be celebrating our 11th wedding anniversary and I can't imagine a better trip to celebrate our cycling growth over the time.
  2. Thanks for the info. Super excited to see all the sees on my bike. I'll be posting photos on the 'gram and book. Hartman rocks looks like a blast. Can't wait to see Durango. During the rainy 18 season I spent many days dreaming about the Colorado trails on project mtb.
  3. Thanks Cody for the great idea- that bikes website is an awesome reference.
  4. Hey y'all. Barry and I are planning our first summer trip and we are looking for recommendations from someone who is familiar with the area. We want to ride high country trails for days, but have a few questions. Is early July too soon to expect the higher trails to be open and clear of snow? Thinking of Salida in town trails, Monarch Crest and then swinging over to Phil's world in Cortez. Any insight or really great trail systems are appreciated. We are aware of the altitude issue and are training in the heat to prep ourselves. Thanks!
  5. As a Strava racer, I think that your rational ignores the instance of cyclists being bit by off leash dogs. I personally know two cyclists bit. I've also seen two dogs off leash fight and the @knifezila separated the dogs while the owners were at a loss.
  6. Decided to get membership. Can confirm that I am paying Strava to tell me how much I suck. It's super low key tho. After a 3.5 hours trail ride that I was dead after, Strava was like, good job managing your efforts. Today Strava recommended that I ride more than 13 hours this week.
  7. @Barry and I got visitors passes for this weekend and I am pretty excited. Been training for the past few weeks and can't wait to spend time that is not artic.
  8. Oh @Barry there was that pizza place. That place was so nice and so chilly in January. I imagine on a sunny day Gooseberry Mesa gets really hot with all of that Mesa thermal mass. Barry can prolly elaborate more, the drive through AZ was transcendent.
  9. I read a bunch of non fiction- in the last 2 years non work related reading. Politics Higher Loyalty, Facts and Fears, Audacity of Hope, Kushner Inc, Fire and Fury Biographies Becoming Michelle Obama In Her Own Words RGB* current selection Daily Podcasts New York Times Car trip Books (Both Barry and I agree on these) From Bacteria to Back Freakonomics Malcolm Gladwell : anything Fiction: Tom Robbins Wally Lamb Paulo Coelho
  10. I wear a 5 in unisex 510 and a 7 in the women's specific 510. There is a difference.
  11. 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.
  12. The only kind of radiation that can cause somatic changes ( damage DNA) is ionizing radiation.
  13. 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.
  14. LOL. I'll buy one when I'm 80. It's nice to have options.
  15. 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
