Story Time with @adammyerson 11

If you are a bike racer, the last few days have been weird. Today I just wanted to be held. Twitter has been real helpful. Adam Myerson decided to tell a story tonight. I compiled it here so it’s easier to read. In “regular reading direction” below, not “Twitter reading direction”.

Things I am Digging.

Here are some things that I am currently (as of this week) digging. Perhaps you will like them, too? Or you won’t. I don’t care. Sherlock Holmes (BBC, 1984) on Netflix – I really enjoyed the recent Sherlock (which you should watch – also on Netflix) and this is quite good. Mostly because it’s really calm and doesn’t ...

The Cheapest Generation – Derek Thompson and Jordan Weissmann – The Atlantic

The typical new car costs $30,000 and sits in a garage or parking spot for 23 hours a day. (source) We (by we, I mean Amanda and I, because I’m adult now, and thus boring and incapable of thinking of myself as an individual unit) have one car. And this is pretty much why – plus ...

Hello, Internet. 1

HI THERE INTERNET.  Considering my last post was May 26, I’m sure that most people have removed this from their blog reader or, if they are living in 2004 and don’t know what RSS is, have stopped checking it on a frequent basis. Or, it still lives in their reader, like a hibernating, literate rodent, ...

Riding Bicycles at 27 MPH Around Somerset County For Three Hours 2

You’re probably looking at this title and thinking “YEAH RYAN, WE GET IT. YOU THINK YOU’RE AWESOME FOR THE BICYCLE RIDING”.  Not true.  This race was quite difficult, and I am really glad that I’m good at writing macros in Excel and doing website things.

Report Regarding Bicycle Racing: The Bennington Tour Of Hidden Dragons 2

I’m still not clear where the dragons are, as none were seen, and we didn’t really tour anything.  ASIDE FROM THE PAIN CAVE (LOL PAIN CAVE JOKE). ANYWAY.

Tour of the Dragons Pro/1/2 GPS file

Tour of the Dragons Pro/1/2 GPS file
So earlier today, I asked the Internet if anyone had a GPS file for this weekend’s road race so I could load it into my Garmin and know how many miles I had until the next climb. As usual, Alex Cox came to rescue, with a .gpx file he made at some point.  I converted it to ...

Jerks Don’t Pre-reg 4

QUICK POINT: Register for the UNH 1/2/3 crit, so they have it.  Currently only 26 people pre-registered. LONGER POINT: As a dude who has worked on bike races in the past, I know how absurdly annoying it is when people don’t pre-register.  You spend your nights awake, staring at the BikeReg confirmed riders screen, hoping the ...
