One positive thing about 'the plaque' and the lockdown is that you can't spent your money on anything else (as long as you keep your job of course).


Except that people are going crazy on Amazon. I feel totally guilty about Amazon -- ordering some 2oz part and having a big sprinter van bringing it to my door in a day.


Well during that driver's shift that Sprinter van is probably delivering
two hundred other packages in your neighborhood as well. It's certainly
a lot more efficient than two hundred people driving to the store to buy
a single small item

Did the lockdown in California make it illegal for you to leave your house and ride alone? Or did all of the group rides in your area get canceled due to the lockdown? And you being a very sociable, loving person, would never ever ride alone. You have to be riding with someone to go out for a ride. Or are you simply blaming someone else you don't like for choosing to ride less last year?
The lockdown reduced my mileage because I wasn't commuting, and I was working a lot and didn't have the discipline to get up from my desk and go for a ride -- which also didn't help my weight. Commuting is compelled mileage, and even my relatively short commute was good for my fitness. I've really had to work at getting my daily mileage back up and throwing in rides that at least equaled my commute. I don't know what accounts for Tom's drop in mileage, but one would assume growing older does not help. I am not anticipating getting stronger as I grow older.

OK. Makes sense. When I commuted I would get 4 miles per day guaranteed. Not much. But it did get me on the bike. Also made it easier to get on another bike when I got home and head out for a longer ride. I also, and still, am suffering from a lack of initiative to ride. All the group rides were canceled last year so no incentive to get out and ride. They have started up for this year but the laziness bug is still infecting me.


I'm puzzled that so many people lack the motivation to go for a ride during the lockdown.

COVID had next to zero influence on my riding miles.


... That was/is more or less the only fun thing to do for me except no coffee stops. I organized my own:

Coffee? Nah. We kept making our regular beer stops for lunch. At times
that meant riding other routes than usual, mostly into our less
restrictive El Dorado County versus Sacramento County. During rides into
more restrictive regions I carried homebrew for me and the guys in the
left pannier. IPA is very tolerant WRT rougher rides (MTB).

The 42T does not look "like new" to me and that's the one that always
goes first when you live in the hills.

Evil Amazon still works! And in the USA drive through food sellers are very popular. Maybe not in Europe.
