Nice!

I've fallen off the wagon with my cycling again. I bonked hard on my last FTP test going for that 250W number and I've been completely discouraged ever since. I had a bit of a sinus thing going on and about 2/3 of the way through the ride I just could not keep up my breath at that pace and had to bail. I was on track to average enough for the 250W result but I just couldn't keep it going. Even though I had a totally valid excuse for not being able to hit the number that day it just took all of my momentum away.

You should get back into it when you’re ready! Sounds like you have it in the bag if you weren’t a little sick.

:eeyore: warning

I'm trying. Unfortunately my motivation for cardio is at all-time lows since my dog died. I should probably talk to someone. Multiple times now I've woken up early with every intention to get on the bike or go for a run and I just...don't. The weights at least give me the chance to crank up the music and take it out on some iron.

I mean you had a running buddy and now a big loss. I’d say don’t beat yourself up, motivation will always ebb and flow :sad:

Yeah. Dude's running harness and leash are still in the bin where I keep my running shoes. I can't bring myself to move them. And after a Peloton ride I almost always do at least a short yoga class, and he'd always come up to me while I was on the floor and hang around, either trying to snuggle up or looking for rubs. I'm just not feeling much like doing either without him right now.

D Griff wrote: Sun Apr 21, 2024 4:03 pm That’s the challenge. I don’t even have three kids and getting out on the MTB is tough. It’s like 1.5+ hours of loading/unloading the car, driving somewhere that cuts into time I could just be riding if I roll out of my driveway on the road bike.
Totally. I really can't justify ditching the family to go ride a bike on the weekends. The kind of evening group ride I'm talking about I can maybe get out to every couple weeks, and if I have some down time at work I can be out my front door and ride for an hour and still feel like I accomplished something. There's no time for that with the MTB.

The idea of slaying trails all day sounds amazing but it's just not realistic for me.

I do think I'll eventually get another MTB, but it's going have to be able to pull double duty as a dad bike and replace the 15 year old 26er Cannondale I have. It'll be something like a Trek Roscoe that I can ride around with the kids and also take out to the trails if I ever get the chance.
Want the trek? Cover shipping and it’s yours. I haven’t ridden it in 2 years so I don’t know if it needs anything. Rear brake caliper may need to be replaced, the piston was sticking last time I messed with it. Should be pretty ok otherwise.

Thanks, but if I'm going to replace the old 26er I'm pretty set on getting the Roscoe.

I dunno I think when I shipped the bike to Breh it was like $130? That was a few years ago. I can ask for a quote from the local bike shop if you'd like.

I mean, if you’re actively trying to give it away, yeah let’s do it. If it was a Coogs special offer though, totally respect that and no hard feelings.

I shipped a bike using bikeflights.com to the UK and it was hundreds cheaper than my corporate fedex account.
