Nice to know that about you Beefy, I raced amateur for 10 years about 30 races a year, mostly Crits, TT's and long flattish road races. My race weight was 185 so a climber I was not, but i did practice climbing a lot.This multichannel stuff is my current addiction and I expect it to last me untill the end.
Before this it was bicycling. Over the years I built up to riding an occasional 100 mile ride. I was into climbing. Over a 26 mile ride I would climb 6,000 ft. up a mountain.
But I'm an addict so I got crazier & crazier and it finally ended on a high speed downhill. Hit a boulder, flew 30 ft. and landed on my knee, belly, helmet & face (in that order)
So my goal now is to slowly build up my daily bicycling mileage. I can easily spend up to 6 hours a day with this. I ride alone with no human contact

I decided to not ride a bike at all a couple months ago to try and undo the forward/curved position of a cyclist. Ride 5.5 hours instead of 6 and take the last 1/2 hour for reverse stretching.
My wife and I went on a 4 mile neighborhood walk today in the nice sunshine and I must admit I was a little jealous of the freedom and escape of the people riding there bikes that I saw.
