Of Writing and Cycling and the Internet

The mind thinks strange things when it wakes up, unprompted, at 5 a.m. Random things. Unconnected things. Starting with “Why on earth am I up at 5 a.m. when I don’t have to be up at 5 a.m.???” That’s why… Continue Reading →

Workout: Jan. 28, 2021

Only had time for a quick workout today. Given that, I wanted to work hard, so I did part of a Zwift race. It was in Watopia, and up into the volcano, including the volcano KOM (King Of the Mountain)…. Continue Reading →

Zwift Vs. Peloton: And the Winner Is…

It’s a question I see asked quite often on Facebook, chat boards, and other places on the Internet that cater to cyclists. Folks want to know which is a better indoor cycling platform: Zwift or Peloton? Since I’ve had lots… Continue Reading →

Workout: Jan. 27, 2021

Today’s Zwift workout was all about cadence. I wanted to keep it as close to 95 rpm as possible, and keep up that rate for an hour (bad roads outside, so I’m sticking to my indoor trainer). Mission accomplished, as… Continue Reading →

Riding in the Cold

Do you know how much I didn’t want to ride today, Jan. 24, 2021, a.k.a. “The Dead of Winter”? The temperature was 34 degrees when I started. It was 33 when I finished. It felt like below freezing with the… Continue Reading →

Workout: Jan. 23, 2021

This is the first Zwift workout I’ve done with a training plan. The first of what I hope will be many. Not too stressful in terms of output, but challenging. A lot of “leg isolation,” which as I’ve recently learned,… Continue Reading →

Why I Cycle

My world changed as the result of one number. That number was 7.5. I received that number in February 2018. I had a physical, which included an A1C check as part of my bloodwork. A1C measures your glucose levels. Mine… Continue Reading →
