Addiction LXXVIII

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Mpls/St Paul have recently moved to 25 on most city streets and 20 on Parkways. I look forward to all of the signs getting changed.

I don't know how temporary it's intended to be. Apparently it is currently 25 mph.

20/25 is indeed plenty for a bicycle. For a car that's crazy talk . . . you might as well get out and walk.
