Addiction 2021.1

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

I carry some vinyl gloves and a couple sheets of paper towels in my bag for just such events.

Oof, I'd look like the trekmogul of bike tees. Twin Six isn't too far away from me - I'll pop over if I see a tee that I like and I'll usually throw in a Mystery T while I'm at it (which is how I got the Love Crank Speed Lube shirt that my wife is not particularly fond of )

I've been cutting my hair for the last 25 years. The amount saved is stunning.

10 times a year at average price of $15/cut.

I've been cutting my own hair since last March. What a nuisance.

Normally I was 10 to 12 times a year.
