Thoughts I had on the trainer

I posted some of these on Twitter already on Thursday. But then my site was being dumb and I wasn’t able to post them on this here blog BUT HERE THEY AREEEEE. 1. Take the live power data from road races (like upcoming classics), send it to the CLOUD (?????), then send it to your ...

“Choking on dicks forever”

I love this. I’ve started reading “Hark, a vagrant” after having followed Kate Beaton on Twitter for a while (she is at her best when she as at home in the Maritimes writing quick comics about her family), and it’s totally super. You may also be thinking “Hey Ryan, this seems like a thing that you ...

Selling crap on eBay, finding weird old Sega promo stuff

Selling crap on eBay, finding weird old Sega promo stuff
As the title says. Over the last month or so I’ve been going through the bins of video games and other crap that I have in the barn, getting rid of things that I haven’t used in several years. Like Kolibri. When I opened up the box, I found that it still contained a subscription ...

Answering my own question 4

Answering my own question
(Updated with info on veteran racers) Sunday morning, I shouted this out into the void of Twitter: I wonder how many of the Cat 5s at Battenkill race multiple times/year or go on to upgrade to Cat 4 or 3? Or is it their only race? — ryank (@ryantkelly) April 6, 2014 And with the ...

Ten Years 2

Ten years ago today, I did my first road bike race – which I consider to be the first race I did, despite the two terrible mountain bike races I did in the fall of 2003. I missed out on the first ECCC weekend at Rutgers, so my first race was at Penn State. This ...

This post is inherently conceited, and there’s not really anyway around that when writing a blog post talking about how much bicycle riding one did in a calendar year. Anyway. COMMUTING! One number that is interesting to me and, PERHAPS, interesting to other people: miles ...

ANNOUNCING REPORT: Ice Weasels 2013 2

Yes, an announcing report. My absence from bike racing has been so long that I am now writing ANNOUNCING REPORTS. But, it’s about Ice Weasels, which is the greatest race ever so screw you. SO. My involvement with the race started on Thursday night, when Colin and I ran errands (which included returning the crappy ...

A stupid thing that Excel was doing and how I fixed it. 5

You probably don’t want to read this. But it’s here, on the off-chance that I forget how to fix it and some day stumble across the solution on my own blog. I use Excel all day, every day, 24/7, because that is how businesses run. Anyway, when I work from home it is real crashy. I ...

A thing about pooping at work. 3

At work there is a bathroom right off of the locker room. After I ride in, I go to the locker room with my things. I put my things in a locker, then I go to the bathroom and poop. The toilet is maybe ten feet from the locker room and the shower, where I ...
