This weekend and yesterday, I took the new tri-bike out for short rides in Prospect Park. The bike is amazing. It adds something between 1 and 2 miles per hour to my pace. Yesterday, I found myself time-trialing past pace lines, which was a very odd feeling (given that it violates the laws of physics).
My problem is much more mundane. I haven't put a cycling computer on the new bike yet, so I've been using MapMyRide on my phone to get data about the workout. It works pretty well, giving me distance, 5 mile splits and average speed. The problem is that the default setting seems to be to post everything I do to Facebook. So, each time I finish a workout, I have to go to my Facebook page and delete the ride (and the friendly supportive comments) from my timeline. I know, you say, just change the privacy settings. Well, I have. I keep setting them to just me, and with each new ride, they seem to reset to "friends." I'm sure I'm doing something wrong, and I'll figure it out, but for the moment, I'll just have to apologize to everyone for what must appear to be even greater than usual exercise exhibitionism. . . .
