Asheville, Day 1

First day of vacation!...

A Tour of Winston-Salem

Some favorite photos from the first two days of our adventure. Approaching our tiny home on the farm of Perch & Nest. Views of the tiny deck. Tiny kitchen! Really bring inside! A small taste of home away from home. That’s not a tree. Now, that’s a tree! Sunrise was really something! Breakfast the the Young Cardinal downtown....

Winston-Salem Breweries

Having tried most of them, the best would be…none of the locals. Oops! Dogwood Hops and Crops was the best, for their selection of NC beers and 30% discount on takeout can purchases. Runner up might be Incendiary Brewing, but it was quite the gap between Dogwood and them. The rest of the contenders in this town were just so-so. Shame! But they’ve got tough competition against the likes of Burial and others....

Feels Like Spring

Great day to be outdoors. Made a quick video of clips and photos I captured during the ride. ...

Biking on Thursday

From Weather NJ: Thursday (March 11) high temperatures should reach well into the 60s again away from the ocean. This day probably has the best chance for interior CNJ/SNJ to climb into the 70s. Places like Cape May and nearby surrounding coastlines could again hang in the 50s. Skies should be mostly sunny. Winds should be light out of the S/SW. Overnight lows should struggle to dip below 50 statewide....

Money Stuff - Payment for Order Flow

From February 5th: Okay let’s do payment for order flow again, because people are talking about it and that always stresses me out. Here’s an intuitive description of how it works. A million people come to a broker to trade GameStop Corp. stock. Half of them want to buy shares, half of them want to sell shares. One share each, all using market orders, all at precisely the same time....

January 2021 Month in Biking

Bit late on this one....

Zwift Fondo Series: Ultima Fondo

I hurt. Finally, some great news in terms of my power curve. Six (6) minute power and over is best it’s been over the past six (6) weeks. Crazy. Definitely coming back after that groin injury last year....

Lunch Ride

Doubt I’ll hold this for too long, but for this year - NUMBER ONE! River Rd 2 segment coming into Washington Crossing. Thought I was fighting against a PR from earlier this year before the groin injury, but turns out my best effort was from July 2019 on this stretch. Ugh. Well, a PR is a PR and I’ll take the win....

December 2020 Month in Biking

Back-date posting this in February 2021. Oops....
