The Fourth Org Fitness Thread of 2017

Thread number three maxed out, which is what we call it when we've done all we can do. So what better way to start thread number four? Check this out from damosuzuki!


i biked 110k today, my 2nd longest uninterrupted ride ever. the fitness thread has died too, so i'm posting my screenshot of my ride here.

Are you kidding? I'm still in awe that you biked for 5 1/2 hours! I don't do anything for 5 1/2 hours, except sleep!

what did you buy, if you don't mind me asking?


i just got back into biking last summer. I bought myself a rather cheap (too cheap, as it turned out) kona mountain bike (a lava dome, if that means anything to anyone) and almost completely wore it out in about three months (i'm exaggerating, but not much). since i was enjoying riding so much, i decided to upgrade a little and bought a cube pro ltd. a little more money, but it rides very, very nicely and it's about a billion times more durable. i'm really happy with it.

I bought a Decathlon "BTWIN My Bike" - I guess it might not be called the same for you if you're in the US....?

Holy cow!!! Congrats! Makes my hooping, walking, and stair climbing seem lazy. Never took to biking as a sport. Don't like wearing a helmet and don't like having my bum in the air like that. But that's just me. Keep up the good work.

hey, thanks, appreciate that.

and you'll never hear me downplay or say anything bad about simple walking or stair climbing. i put on a bit of weight in my late 30s, as one does, and i tried various things to work it off - elliptical, jump rope, & so on. they all helped, but it was mostly long walks every day, regardless of conditions outside, that really put me back to what i'd consider my fighting weight.

my neighbor actually has a hoop business. i help her get her massive collection of hoops in and out of her apartment every now and then. she does special events, goes to schools to teach fitness, things like that. when i first heard her describe her business, i thought it seemed a bit silly, but apparently it's been a big success for her so far.
