Major message. James doesn't know s***! Is there anything to know about cycling? Does James know everything except what there is to know about cycling? He doesn't know. It's okay. He's having a nice evening. Getting lots of exercise. Lots of good study. But he doesn't know anything about f****** cycling. Is there anything to know? 1350 cal.
It's not so much thar everything extolled in blogs over recent weeks in months is worthless. But by this point that James has rather different things in mind than that in those logs is insane! Absurd! A fact!
Tonight there are some useful things in mind!
The most essential machine in the picture, the only one that James can control, is his own body. The man machine interface is important, but nothing is more important than the human part of it. The only part that he can control.
The most significant thought tonight is not unlike the last two logs, somehow staying in intimate contact every second with the mechanical heavy object vehicle. To avoid anything, possibly the electrical system wants to mask or interfere or allow cheating out of that intimate relationship.
Moving the feet forward in the shoes so that the pedal is more under the arch of the foot seems to be really important to all this. And that was a really good old friend before but long forgotten.
Leg trust. Everything is leg trusts? Everything is leg trust. Thighs.
Maintaining Constant back pressure from the vehicle on the thighs seems very important. Either throttling back on the motor ratio or forward on the gear ratio or peeling faster is extremely helpful it seems to maintaining that constant real intimacy with the weight of the vehicle and the mechanics of moving it. This relationship is so in powering of the body and so freeing of the mind.
Warning! The gear at the knee is nowhere to be found. In James thinking on this or the last two voyage is. Is it something of great value that is lost? Was it in necessary stepping stone to arrive at tonight's insights? Stay tuned James.
