Hey Andre - last Tuesday I exceeded 100,000 ft of climbing for
the year. To celebrate I did another 2,500 yesterday.

Just 71k here; there isn't much in the way of extended climbing
around northern Indiana.

There were many times of this year where I wondered if I even had 71,000 feet of horizontal riding, let alone vertical.


My son's friend and former teammate did 30,000 feet in one day -- twice in a season. https://www.facebook.com/universityo...54519895920636 So, he did about 63,000 feet of climbing in two rides. His elevation for the year was over a million feet of climbing, but I forgot the exact number. It was freakish. It's easy to rack up elevation in SLC because the canyons are the best places to ride. Everybody climbs -- old ladies on tricycles doing 12% and knocking out 400 watts. It's crazy!

On one ride here you do about four miles of maybe 5% and then a mile of about 10% average. In general no one passes me there but occasionally there are some young guys that come flying by. But at the top there's a rest area where you find them leaning over the wall and puking.

Hell that ain't bad. My wife tells me that the hills there
aren't long but the steepest she and the daughters had ever seen
when they rode coast to coast training for the jr. nationals.


Interesting. I lived in Bloomington (southern Indiana) for some
14 years, and thought the hills there were generally steeper than
around here.

When I lived in Northern Indiana, a friend had a 'climbing loop'. It
was ride over a bridge over the Toll Road, turn around, ride the other
way. Repeat until you get bored. Because the toll road is build on
an embankment, some of the bridge crossings have 100' of elevation
change in them. So he could do two 100' hills in a half mile. You
got to go a fair distance to find better hills, the glaciers did a
good job.

The last glaciers stopped within five or ten miles of where I live. There is
a river valley just north of me, but if I cross the river and climb north for
mile or so, it's quite flat to the north or west.

OTOH, if I head south or east, I can get all the hills I'd ever want. Not that
I necessarily want any...

This terrain situation plus the countless little old farm roads make this place
really nice for bicycling, and very unappreciated.

I can strongly sympathize with her not wanting to let someone steal from their shop.

When the guy mentioned "shooting", it may have have been better to call the police.

With the good camera footage, there is a chance at an arrest.

Huh?

When seconds matter, 911 is just twenty minutes away.

But, what will the penalty be?
I like "community service" as I'm sure that helping out one neighbors
is a sole stirring experience,

The Rhine "Rift Valley"
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Upper_Rhine_Plain gives me a similar
situation. Going South, North or West I'm basically flat (OK, West, I
lose some 10m on the first 25k and re-gain them on the next 25k), going
east I have a 500m climb up the Königsstuhl starting at the edge of town
(one popular hiking route contains a stairway of 1600 steps).

People who have never had need for the police haven't even a passing understanding of self defense.
