    It's probably just the way they designed this particular overlay, which is just a pre-made template...I would try to test it, but I doubt I could get even close to 1000W. There are overlays that are just the numbers, but that's not quite as compelling.

    I'm only teasing...but yeah, go out and try doing a couple max efforts to see what you peak at! Report back in the other thread on talking about power.

    That's why I'm not using it. Max power is too low.

    Jokes aside, @TwoWheelsDC, it looks really cool!

    C&O trip, part the third: the ride home!

    Bikes waiting to leave the hotel in Leesburg:

    Made it home! Almost 140 miles of C&O, country roads, and W&OD:

    On the trip, some jerk-wad tried to roll coal on us during our road ride yesterday, but his pass was so generously wide, I didn't get even a whif of exhaust. Kinda funny, actually (except that it isn't funny at all). Also, it turns out the building across the street from where we stayed in Harpers Ferry burned down overnight last night, so I'm kind of glad we left there when we did, rather than staying an extra day.

    A flock of crows flying over the Exorcist house, next to the Exorcist Steps in Georgetown. (You could say a "murder of crows" but I'm not going to.)

    I also learned, just now, that there is a makeshift pull-up bar, near the bottom of the stairs. Just to the right when looking up the stairs. It's just above the smaller set of stairs on the right. When hanging from the bar, your feet would be just above one of the metal steps, and you are only a foot or two off the ground. So even if you slipped, you wouldn't fall that far.

    Enjoying riding the trails... admittedly only the C&O for now, but starting to do some research on light gravel riding options in the area.

    Since I hadn't taken a ride on the Arlington Loop for a while, I decided to take it this morning. Just after crossing Columbia Pike headed westbound I noticed something new just off the trail.

    While it might be nice to get a Bike Arlington cap, this map is a nice addition to the Arlington Loop for all to use.

    Thanks, Bike Arlington!

    Got out for my first ride in Kyiv, and of course got turned around. It was frequently hard to find a street sign and almost all are only in Cyrillic.
    According to my map, this is a momument to the vicitms of the Kurenivskpo catastrophe by a pedestrian overpass into the Babyn Yar Park

    and the old US Embassy. Our apartment is about three blocks from this and we walk our dog in the park across the street from the old Embassy.
