Wow great posts folks!
The most sketchy part of that GW bridge ride over to Manhattan is the very last section of the GW bike path right
before entering Manhattan. I do not like heights and that section is tight as a crabs ass with just so-so protection
( you cannot fall unless you are a massive idiot) and signs all over to dismount and walk which all of the gear heads
ignore. I know 60 year olds clocking 80 mile rides which makes my 20 look lame, but I ride for health and fun not
ego....... anymore.
Keep it moving!

EGO is what drive’s some of us?
My 72 year old brother in-law from FRANCE ride’s 100 km per week!
I ride a stationary bike to maintain my physical health.
Thank you for reminding the member’s of this form of staying presentable.
Excuse me as I practice being healthy?

Those e-bikes are only going to get better. Specialized just came out with a new e-bike line.
Didn't they try one out with Cancelara a few years ago? :lol:

Exciting to see some other bike riders here!! You guys might enjoy my current project, its not related to vapes, but still:
Wow! Lots of shots to create that! Looks like a fun trail!

I love mountain biking :luv:. I dream about mountain biking :razz:. That's been helped along because I've done a lot of riding this year 🎉 (it's a spring though fall riding season here). >1000 miles so far; it's been great in so many ways.

:peace: :leaf:

France is where I started cycling.
South America as well.
I mountain biked at first!
Touring bikes took over from influence from family!
In CALIFORNIA the driver’s are not use to us?
Beach trail is safer there.
The desert is too hot but better than the coast?

Luv it. I find mountain bike riding very rewarding :luv:. I've XC'd ~40 miles multiple times this year. My shortest mountain bike ride is a >10 mile loop.

Let me do a weak attempt the excellent ataxian style prose here 👍.

California is amazing mountain biking.
I've mountain biked the Rockies a lot.
I love challenging single track!
Road cycling is very different!
Locals hate cyclists here.
Desert and coast are both great but different?
The exercise keeps me loose?

:)

I realized I have a core body muscle strain from recent riding and am hobbled... so I'm taking a break for a few days; need to take it easy and let the muscle heal. But the last few days have been some rarer nice weather, so I needed to get out on the mountain bike 🚵‍♂️ 🚵‍♂️. Yesterday it was the >10 mile loop (one hr), today it was a more entertaining and interesting 15 mile different loop (in great weather with a 79 Fahrenheit high). Loved the rhythm and flow... felt awesome. No large power moves on the ride though, a big no-no. It's helps that I'm in best-of-season shape with best-of-season skill; carpe diem 🌠 . Highly recommended. Listened to music all ride long too 🔊...

While hobbled I seem to be able to still get out and rack up some mountain bike miles, seeking out and enjoying any good late fall weather we now get. Winter and snow is coming :o .

Not to one up any one here reading my past experience on this pale blue dot we all live on in a solar system out in space somewhere in the corner of the known universe!
Mountain biking along the border of ARGENTINA and CHILE 25km was so beautiful.
House’s without electricity or running water?
Make’s CIVILIZATION well received!
Stationary bike stoned like a wild animal is safer these daze.

Less soul, more mind
I run three times a week, 10 to ~12.5 kilometers. Used to be strictly 10 when I was still smoking (and yeah, I used to smoke a J right before a run...), now I'm much more able to extend a running session spontaneously and enjoy it much more too. Less heavy breathing, better stamina. Vaping makes a huge difference to me.

I live in Berlin, pretty much in the center of it – and I *so* enjoyed running when we had the hard lockdown when almost all the shops were closed and nobody was on the streets. Usually my tracks are full of party people, heavy traffic and tourists, but during the lockdown I sometimes met only a handful of people and three or four cars in a fifty minute run. Had some magic to it.

I love EUROPE.
Lived in FRANCE staring a factory for a USA corporation.
I was traveling to GERMANY once a month to the HEAD QUARTERS to review progress.
They drank beer like it was water?
Engineer’s had trash bag’s full of COLAS of CANNABIS TOP’s without seed to a coma date our USA custom ?
CYCLING was a new adventure during the early 90’s.
France and northern Spain was where sport’s kept me sane!
Party everywhere else: many other countries I went to however GERMANY is intensely party organized!

I also run, 2-5 time a week depending how busy I am, usually 7-10 kms, with an occasional longer (up to 15 kms) run.
Vaping a nice sativa, throwing on my headphones, and getting out for a run has been my sanity during this whole pandemic.

I'd like to think that my running helps clear and clean up my lungs. Don't know if it does, but sure hope so.

Back to running (jogging) after 30 years and open heart surgery. Up to 4 miles now. Very slow pace - in fact I was passed by a 3 legged pregnant turtle !!
Don't feel bad. Testudinidae are notorious for winning races.

My wife love’s to walk after lunch to the store..
I go with her to be cool.
My dog stay’s home to pretend to be used to protect?
Open heart surgery is gnarly to recover from.
A professor from UNIVERSITY was 70 working out!
Keep it up! (You give hope to those of us who need to keep fit)
