Addiction LXXVII

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

Did I show you guys my new eMTB yet? I think it may be about the lightest one on the market, particularly after I switched out the 2.4" Maxxis DHR tires for 2.1" Maxxis Aspens (which I also have on my Santa Cruz Blur). It's the most fun you can have this side of .... well, you know.

Nice.

falling off a peloton is probably less bad than a bicycle at the speeds I run. Fast speeds like 21.3 mph. His body is prolly more brittle than mine since he's 60+ and I am a ute.

There's usually a week or so when I wish the rjones28 homestead was air conditioned.

It's good to still have goals at your age.
