inexplicably
isn't that a rule of cycling?

For three hours I was in an arm wrestling match with a giant.  I was nearly pushed into traffic so many times, I lost count. 

I hope you at least filmed it. anything in the brave/stupid grey area needs to be on camera.

Cogsy, this seems like a bit of a humblebrag.  ;)

I kinda like humblebrags.
Lets people share being happy about what they did while not doing the standard Rick Flair impression that most dude-bro alpha knobs seem to think is necessary.

Not so much of a humble brag, more as an "oh yeah?" To Moa's casual dismissal of the mighty wind gods of Southern Nevada (May they bless me with a tailwind some day).

Edit: if I was gonna humble brag, I would have thrown in the fact that I still managed a 17mph average for the ride.  ;D

Got hills?  I'm guessing you didn't include elevation change because there wasn't any.     >:D

Admittedly, it's not super hilly but it's far from flat.  2300' elevation change in 54mi.

I don't care where you're from, 40mph headwinds/crosswinds with gusts up to 60 (in both directions, inexplicably) does not make for a pleasant ride.  Especially with deep cross section wheels. For three hours I was in an arm wrestling match with a giant.  I was nearly pushed into traffic so many times, I lost count.

Well, our winds usually maintain a reasonably constant direction.  But that direction (usually NW) at sixty to one hundred forty k's goes on for days.  and days.  That's why I have two chainsaws and a bad back. 

My friend Glen was blown off his mtn bike training for China a fortnight ago.  Nice wounds.

Just did my first run in 3 months.
It did not feel good :D
Back held up fine but thirty minutes left me in bits!
The place Im in is not exactly jogger friendly though and the fumes from traffic and burning rubbish/open sewers were a delight!
Ah well, baby steps and all. But I definitely respect anyone who has come back from more serious stuff or even just started from scratch later in life.

No muggers. Its a pretty safe place traffic not with standing.
Sometimes guys get held up at knife point by taxi drivers if they are too drunk but during the day everyone is very friendly.

Shit, I was actually running when I was there, too. The smog was brutal.

And the locals clearly thought I was fucked in the head. Seriously, they found someone out running to be the strangest thing. The attention was pretty irritating, actually.

Yes!!!
Everyone either wants to shake your hand or seems to think you should be in their tuktuk!
Our place is round the corner from Mr Sri Lankas gym but I wont be venturing over there until I have my base cardio back.
I do prefer the gym or even just sprints in the garden while Im here because the road death stats are sobering.
