    Any thoughts on the Zwift training programs? I was thinking something to work on FTP might help me stay focused.
    Never looked at those brother. Ride lots, that works too.

    Should I buy the Kurt adaptor or or or?

    Prefer cheap, good, easy - pick three.

    KTHXBYE.
    I just got the Kurt adapter for my Road Machine and like it so far. I'm running the iOS version of Zwift up on our TV using a Lightening to HDMI connection. HR isn't integrated though--using my old Polar for that.

    Sorry to bail (again). This time I'm not sick. The problem is that it is above freezing and it's not raining, snowing or even overcast. I'm going to do an actual real world (as in outside) ride over lunch tomorrow. This way I won't have to text my conversations. I'll be able to actually converse ... with riders who are actually physically within a few feet of me. I know, novel. So maybe if the weather improves and we get some good snow or ice I'll be on next week's ride. Have a good one.

    The hiking boots are off and I'm again surrounded by snow. If I can get adjusted back on EST enough to be on the bike at 9a, I'll be Zwifting with you tomorrow.

    Aaannd...the folks at InsideRide rollers are s-t-i-l-l backordered.
    I may simply throw the towel on this Zwift idea and catch you guys in 2018.

    Unsure if it is worth it if their hardware arrives late-February or early-March? Uggh!
    Many will be finding plenty of outdoor riding by then. Decisions, decisions, decisions.

    LOL.

    Snag a Kickr Snap or the like and get with it. Could be a long wait for the retrofit for the rollers.

    You were missed. Beagles, a great warrior dog if ever there was one. See you soon.

    Bummed to have missed the ride. Just back in from travels and an emergency trip to the mom-in-laws started the day. Would have preferred to have been on the bike and Zwifting in temps above 15F.

    Gold star for taking care of family S.C.

    Good news. You are ride leader for the next two weeks. (rubbing it in) I'm in FL and hoping for 90mile'ish days. Weather looks oh so M.Strongin-esque. He!! I might even get a tan line.

    I think you're technically in Georgia adjacent, but hopefully the weather is warm enough to get that tan line.

    Speaking of tan-lines (not). It is going to be single digit temps here tomorrow morning making it into double digits as the day goes on.

    Seems like a good day for a Zwift ride.

    If anyone is interested, same Thursday rules apply.
    Put NFS after your name to make it easier to keep track of people in the group.
    "Bicycling" jersey design to make it easier to keep track of people in the group.
    London 8 loop.
    Meet at 9:05 EST at the start/finish line. You will likely be put in the game a few hundred meters before the line. You will need to slowly roll up.
    Depart at 9:10 EST.
    Max 2.5 watts/kg on flats.
    Wait at the top of hills.
    5 min break after the 2nd time up Box Hill after crossing the KOM line.

    If 9:30 works better just let me know.
