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

In other baseball news, the D-backs cardboard cutout crowd is completely masked.

Dunno. Haven't seen any of their games yet, and haven't bothered looking at standings.

Might want to get someone knowledgeable to look at your foot/ankle/pedal mechanics and possibly recommend some shimming somewhere.

Alternatively, you could post on the 41...

Nope.

I took my shiner for an after work ride. Then I went home and HTFU and cut one of my lawns. I am now off the cutting the grass on the weekend cycle. More free time on the weekend is a good thing.

Mental acuity is stellar so I am suffering no after effects from the incident.
