    Oh, so you’re D D. I haven’t a fucking clue on Strava sometimes (which may have influenced my decision to switch to unfiltered username recently - not that I know/can remember people’s real names on here).

    I’ve been watching the recent Italian races on Rai (usually Rai2 rather than RaiSport) in the way you mention. No sign up necessary, unless you want to watch their on-demand replays.

    My speed on group rides was only ever a strategy to escape tedious chit-chat.

    I was ahead of the pandemic curve with sanitising (and those were always running side-effects rather than cycling).

    @amey when my son was younger, I had to ensure I stayed on my feet after a long and exhausting ride, and go almost immediately into an outdoor activity with him. Sitting was risky. Lying down was game over.

    Tears are just failure leaving the body.

    Never thrown up, but have made nose bleed and caused hot wax to bubble out my ears.

    Same. Can’t believe how much mine’s plummeted. 170bpm used to mean barely warmed-up. It’s race o’clock now.

    • to feel strong
    • to maintain the momentum of getting out of bed each day rather than just ending it all
    • to be a role model for my son (genes alone are not a free pass in life)
    • to win/get on podiums/beat club records/get Strava course records for stupid pointless fun
    • to enjoy that occasional moment in a race where you sense the main rival/s crack (something primal and a bit ugly, but the lizard brain likes what it likes)
    • to enjoy food more
