What's a good drink for a budding bicyclist to keep him going?

The human body has two types of muscle fibers, slow twitch and fast twitch. Slow twitch muscle fibers are the endurance specialized muscles and are lean and low mass. Fast twitch muscle fibers are the power specialized muscles and are bulkier and higher mass than slow twitch fibers. For a focus on gaining mass, you want high intensity, high resistance workouts that target a high burst of wattage in a short amount of time, repeatedly. For a leaner form, you focus on a steady power output for extended periods of time. It's best to balance the two and vary your workouts and it's also possible to train both.

Now as far as nutrition, the best you can do is fuel yourself like an athlete. Eat a balance of everything, no meme diets, avoid processed foods, and hydrate. Something I hear all the time is "if your grandma wouldn't eat it, then it's probably not good for you." Stick to "real" foods, unprocessed fruits and vegetables and meats and stuff.

You didn't ask but don't neglect recovery. Recovery and stretching should be in your routine. Stretch, a lot.

I have stopped eating on my rides and now I can easily ride 3 hours without feeling like shit, I can still push myself by the end of the ride
Now Idk how much of that is me getting used to not eating or just my fitness getting better but still saying it's possible to avoid eating at all for rides not very long
If you ride regularly and gain some fitness your easy riding speed increases and you can be much faster than that

Nice. Lean chicken on a leafy salad all day
>now I can easily ride 3 hours without feeling like shit
I'm contemplating doing this, it's like training secondary energy stores right?
But on the other hand I'm training for cycling the Camino de Santiago from Paris this summer and I know for a fact that riding for more than 1-2 hours without calorie intake is significantly slower for the same effort, and is basically just burning fat without improving muscle performance.

C-series shell for metronet being smuggled in under the cover of darkness

Can I get a quick rundown on e-bikes? I have no idea how they work and what to look out for except that it absolutely has to be from KTM. Recently I feel like I've gotten too fat and my legs aren't as strong anymore but I still want to ride to get out for some fresh air and green scenery. Though I was never a good cyclist anyway as my average speed was like 17/kmh. I used to be able to do 50km but now I'm at 30km routes. Most of the routes I'm taking are on the road but some are in the forest for a bit and there is also a good amount of uphill sections.

What a weird response. That's still how it is though so not sure what to say. What are some other good brands then. Question would be if I could even get them where I live as I will certainly not order from outside of my country.
Are ebikes just not useable without the motor? If I were to get one I'd say I would use it mainly for going uphill. When it's even or downhill no motor. Is not using the motor on an ebike like riding a normal bike permanently on the highest gear or something?
>muh brands
I do that and they don't feel different to a regular bike when the motor is not turned on but most of them are heavy as fuck and on really slow tires so it can be a pain
Even the best ones only manage about 1500 m of elevation change.

Bro, don't buy that. I can buy a NOS 3rensho with dura ace wheels on my local craigslist for $10. There's an ad on my local "gum tree" where Ugo de Rosa's corpse will personally show up at my front door and weld me anything I want for $25, and then Emily Bridges will parachute to my front door in a g string tied to Manon Lloyd using rope tied in special Japanese pain knots and together give me a four hands erotic massage while deep tongue kissing each other and moaning to keep me entertained and erect as Gustav Faberge designs a headtube badge based on a family crest personally created on the spot for me. The bike will also have a missile launcher to kill cagers using a button hidden on the bar end plug and it comes with EPO injectors in the saddle to juice me up any time I get passed by some jerk on a plastic bike you don't even need. Total cost is less than $30. Everyone's used bike market is exactly like mine, if you argue with me you don't know SHIT about cycling

It's the Explore 520 you're thinking about, which has been posted here >>1917431

EPO injectors in the saddle, in this economy? you take us for fools?
Ok my bad I actually "just had one of those lying around" (MGTOW accounting value: $0) and installed it after the fact using one-off tools that are literally only useful for punching EPO injector size holes in a brooks leather saddle (but I carry it around anyway at all times in my jersey because I am a Real Cyclist and if you don't it means you suck and I'm better than you)

Glad you asked.
A lot of thought has been put into his very subject and pic related is has been found to be the optimum storage solution for bicycles.
Depends on the context..do you mean in your home, or in a transit facility like >>1915921 or something else? I think hanging vertically is the optimal solution in general.
I live at my parents house. We have approximately 10-20 bikes hanging up vertically in our 3.5 car garage(weird size measurements).
We alternate which way the bars face and just have them hanging via the cheap pulleys they sell.

Have had one rope fail. while going down, but we have had this setup for damn near 2 decades.

From lightweight road bikes to my 40lb dh bike.
Here's a good solution for wheel storage. Clothing rail with s-hooks, it's wheeled so it can be easily moved around.

It's not the first time. The modern era has nothing on the past though. The 20th century civil rights movement - which was arguably a fantastic thing at the time despite the "lol niggers" meme on 4chan - resulted in a lot of pivotal events.

For example, when Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated, that shook the United States to its core and sent shockwaves around the nation for decades. And his death was actually bad, because he was an intelligent Christian minister trying to obtain valid rights.

Same thing happened with Malcolm X, except because he was more controversial and it can be argued that he himself was racist as well as saw Islam as the true religion of man. Hard to like the guy.

But the contemporary pro-black and anti-police brutality movements are so fucking misguided and don't seem to have any strict goal or ideology. It's just ACAB and looting. There is no coherent demand for things that actually matter and would change the black communities like strong investments in economic growth, education, health care or whatever in black communities. It's just "defund the police, all kids are trans, Kamala Drunken Harris 2024!". There's a reason King Jr. met with Lyndon Johnson in the White House but people like Patrisse Cullors can only get a few soundbites in on MSNBC.
>It makes a lot more economic sense to train police to deal with homeless AS WELL AS criminals (given how much overlap there is between those groups) than to train twice as many first responders.


I'm from Canada where for the most part, our police are required to have a college degree to even apply to join the police college itself. So, those who know they want to be police tend to study things that are going to assist them in that, whether it's learning more about disaster management, psychology, criminology, niche fields of law or heck even information technology.

Problem with the USA is that any retard can become a cop. It's often treated for what it is: a well paid job, unionized with great benefits and a more exciting field of work than most might get to experience, even if it is dangerous.

If states or jurisdictions in the US can make the requirements to become police higher, you get higher value individuals who can join. Any retard can shoot a gun and drive fast, so it makes sense to hire ones who can do that but who have also studied something valuable like criminal psychology or psychiatry PRIOR to even joining the police college.

I'd rather see acceptably educated police doing their usual police work but who also have the skills to deal with someone having a paranoid schizophrenic episode, who can then call in additional medics if required or to take them to the hospital. I'd rather not see some dumb fuck diversity hire who studied gender studies and social work at some low-tier college in the middle of nowhere try to evict bums or deal with someone having a delusional episode.

Problem is it's the USA I guess. The bar for anything there is so fucking low and that's why everything seems to suck, including safe transit.

And then the backside of two of them. The Syracuse round plate is "backstamped" with 'UNION PACIFIC RR'. This one is from January 1955, but the Trenton oval plate is from the late 60s. Trenton was the second to last supplier of this pattern and did so until UP sold their passenger routes to Amtrak in 1972. Homer Laughlin made orders after that until the 80s for the business car fleet. UP had several other, less common patterns of which I have yet to see in the wild for a good price.

And they are still right, we will most likely still swing back into a glacial. Like Yellowstone and Naples will still blow up, the big one will destroy some places here and there, some new ebola or bird flu will kill big parts of humanity and the next nuclear meltdown will happen.

Only in the meantime we get a floppy circumpolar and boringly stable weather systems that doesn't mix well with our current land use.
You know these weather forecasts that use the most extreme models and even exaggerate those for clickbait? That's pretty much what also happens in science. Not really flipping a switch but people like to jump on the wildest new horse to get attention, fame and money. Old topics will get dug out eventually.

I like riding with boomers they have lots of snacks and they ride together so they can loaf. Trade them hits off your mj vape pen for the best snax
Life is infinitely better when you make peace with boomers. Get to know some of them, you might learn something
Boomer knowledge is hit or miss. Some are experienced and have learned something, others (many) are too trusting of information from “authorities” (salespeople).

Why did Train aesthetics peak with the GS-4 and then decline?
Jewish capitalism. It killed the spirit of modernist design - whether it was in architecture, industrial design, product design etc - by forcing everything to look similar so it could be mass produced and functional. It was stripped of any sort of personality.

Even some of the real intelligent and good Jews saw this. Walter Benjamin wrote his famous philosophical essay "The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction" that spoke about how art in the modernist era was losing its aura (uniqueness).

Many even tried to push for more post-modern ideas. This was especially evident in architecture, where post-modernism tried to blend both modern design and historical design. But that died out and we now build buildings like the fucking commie Chinks do, with EIFS and other pre-made components, so we can just ship them to a site and build a building ASAP. Doesn't matter if it looks like 99% of the other buildings around it.

Because it meant less profits for money hungry Jews, the desire for uniqueness in design failed. Why do you think every phone, train, plane, car, computer, dough mixer, lawnmower, subway etc looks the same now? They wanted them to be easily mass produced, easily replicable, equally identical. 100 years ago you'd go to a store to buy a hammer and you'd try to figure out whether it's a good hammer, whether it'll break on you, what kind of steel it'd be made of. You'd chat with the guy about it. Now you go to Home Depot, pick up one of the 102 similar hammers, pay for it on an automated check-out machine with your plastic Jew bank card and then use it until it breaks.
Capitalism created modernist design, retard. It peaked with midcentury American futurists.

Now what?
