Why would horse and buggies be banned?
I was out for 4/5 hours yesterday. 1.5 litres of water with electrolytes. Needed more when got home as my scales read just over a 2kg post ride weight drop. Also a mid-ride reapplication of the Nivea water gel sunblock would have been in order if I had remembered to pack it in the frame bag. These days I wear a wide brimmed sun hat to protect my forehead which is always sunbloc free to avoid the dreaded stinging eyes. Be careful out there. View attachment 32024
This is an Amish area I am in right now. The "Cardinal Greenway" I am on is for bikes/runners/walker.Why would horse and buggies be banned?
So it is a dedicated bike trail. Makes sense. Although, sliding through the road apples left by the horses could improve bike handling skills.This is an Amish area I am in right now. The "Cardinal Greenway" I am on is for bikes/runners/walker.
There are a bunch of signs on the trail saying 'no horses' but it seems maybe some Amish feel if a horse has a buggy, then it is OK?
I think originally it said no motor vehicles, so the Amish just used the trail. Bikes are supposed to yield to horses - but since it is build for bikes, this isn't going to happen. Then add to is horse poo and they take up most the trail... just a mess. So I am guessing the signs are just to make it very clear to the Amish that no horses means no horses.
I'm glad you're OK. You don't want to collide with *anything* at that sort of speed. It's bad enough if you're inside a ton of steel...riding today with dutch hills. coming downhill at 60kmph a deer stag runs across the road 10M in front of me. It had quite a mane and my first thought was BEAR.
I think ended a little earlier over on this side--from last saturday to/including this morning, 7 days out of 8.Raining season is officially over in Kanto and Koushin'etsu (Nagano-Niigata). I had a sunny ride yesterday and gave the bike a proper wash to get all the crap off it. Get yourselves out there!
It's also hot in Italy, southern France and Spain of course, but the humidity here is something else. I just can't wrap my head around a race in these conditions.Stay safe out there on rides, this time of year for Olympics is batshit crazy, they can’t even do the convenience store stops, (be interesting to see on road race) heat stress is going to be in the news.
no, he was outsprinted. Fitting that the Belgian Champ denied him the Merckx record breaking victory. Won sprint hill climb and Time trial stages. Watch out Tokyo Olympics you may well be looking at his double golds in a short spell. But I am not watching the Olympics this year.So Cav was blocked?
