"Well, it hasn't been thoroughly diagnosed -- this was from a NP at a Minute Clinic. In any case, it hasn't held me back on the bike really -- other issues and lack of drive are more responsible for my drop in saddle time. Yesterday I…"

"Less than Marched out of this past month, with 475 road miles to push me to a modest 938.6 miles Y-T-D, with yet no Perimeter Ride performed this year. Surprisingly, this current total edges Curt(is)2021 by 4.9 miles year to date."

"FWIW, I don't think the issue is not enough accessibility. And reddit?? If if works for you, great. Personally, I don't find reddit to be particularly enriching. However, I don't have answers / solutions. Maybe the Chainlink's…"

"February made me shiver, with every paper I delivered ... Shorter month but more miles with 263.6 on the month, pushing the Y-T-D to 463.6 miles road/rode and 141.2 miles ahead of Curt(is)2021."

"103rd, hell no! I mean, I ride it occasionally, but it's a major detour coming from south Hegewisch and it's a balls out cannonball run through a minefield of potholes, rough road due to heavy truck traffic, and merging traffic entering…"

"Not following here exactly -- were you out on Sunday when the wind was so intense? I got a shortie in Sunday -- 24 miles -- from LFT from HP down to a dispensary in South Chicago and then up to the Shedd and back via surface streets. I was out early…"

"Pulaski from 115th to 63rd ain't that friendly either, particularly from 115th to Columbus after 3 pm when it's a trades-guys-with-white-pickups parade. Or Harlem from Forest Preserve Drive to Devon. Or the Pulaski bridge crossing the…"

"End of times. Finished the calendar year this afternoon with a leisurely 40 miler in the cool drizzle up to Evanston and back to Hyde Park on my "new" old Klein Quantum Race, which I dubbed my new hole in my head. That gave me 337 miles on…"
