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

The Fall season means migration season for many of nature's species, including hawks. Many of the mature Red-tail hawks don't bother to migrate, but the immature ones like this guy who haven't yet mastered their hunting skills usually are better off making the trip south.

****.



So, yeah. The gloomy 50° outside has me feeling like a lazy homebody. Rather than veg, though, I'm going to completely overdress for the conditions so that I can stay toasty while I go for a leisurely ride.

Next week's weather looking good for my favorite local-ish three-day trip. Port Jervis, NY, to home, following the Delaware River for much of the trip. Highs in the low 60s. Lows in the low 40s.

I poked around in the 33 and it seems like a lot of the same people still racing. And some have stopped. Interesting.

In other news, it's Justin Zanik's birthday. Interesting fact - he was Justin Szajnuk in college, but that must have been too difficult to handle in the NBA. We're planning our college reunion next year around the Jazz schedule.

Wet ride in this morning and 43 degrees. Coldest so far this fall. Chilly but nice.

Our empty office has become the office bike room. Very expensive bike room.

90's the rest of this week too. Normal is 77 this time of year. Chilly.
I will be breaking out the awesome Marigold jacket soon.

My slow internet is $90/month. We use YouTube TV so no cable content charge.

In other news, my seatpost is in Charleston, SC!

Very nice.

Speaking of expensive, since the partner is gone, are you going to get back with Troy and the bunch? I saw them last weekend, and yes, there's a lot of pink going on there. Mike Z is back on the bike, and he was rocking the old school Psimet kit. Good to see.

How long did it take to get that off of your slow internet?

My ride last night, in a nutshell. Dark, cold, wet, and blurry. I'm sure this other guy thought the same.

Fall season but it’s 91F right now. We had a hot ride. Likely last day of the year for my Halo.

Highest chance of rain is 20%. Cold was the real concern. One year I did an organized ride up where I will be doing the first day. Mid-October. It was 34 degrees when I left the hotel for the sort ride to the start of the event.

First night will be at really nice New Jersey state forest campground along the river. When I stayed there in June of 2018 during a tour home from northern Vermont a young bear cub walked across my path as I was riding back to my site from the shower. Mom was nowhere to be seen, which was scary but also sad. Hope the poor thing was not orphaned. Next task was to cook dinner, which included sautéed garlic and shallots. You can bet I kept my head on a swivel.
