Addiction LXXIX

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

So now the question is, if you like one post yesterday, then 50 today, then you un-like the one from yesterday, does it return?

Some of my way back ancestors lived in @datlas' neck of the woods. Others in eastern Pennsylvania. Berks County, iirc
He didn't grow up there, either. We grew up just about where the rolling hills give way to the foothills of the Appalachians. A little west of hardcore Pennsylvania Dutch country, but we did have a few Amish, and a lot of Mennonites. And so, a lot of pickles.

So you can UNlike a post, but not DISlike a post?

I wish to reaffirm my DISlike of bib shorts. I recently bought a pair because the lower half of our club cycling costume comes only in bibular form. I was soon reminded of how hard it is to pee out of them and how clammy they get on the belly after working up a sweat.

You prefer NOT BIBS shorts?

Sacrilege!

Actually, I am neutral and am fine with either bibs OR shorts.

I noticed another strike against the only pair of bibs I own the other day. Sweat rolls all the way down my back and into the crack. Not good.

NOT BIBS tend to blockade most of the back sweat at the waistband.

I will be on the qui vive for that next time I wear mine.

Unfortunately I noticed that too this year, and worse it can lead to chaffing in uncomfortable to mention places. Didn't think about it in the context of bibs/not bibs.

Interesting; I find bibs move around less and thus cause less chafing. Shorts are fine only on the trainer, or on short rides.

Of course, jokes aside, I don't know why I'd care what anyone else wears.

Cake is good food.

During my airport appreciation time I came across this hat. I was interested, I am a big time hat wearer, but 32 dollars seemed a touch steep.

Funny you should say that, because I was just mentioning to my wife that, having weighed less than 220lbs the last 5 days in a row, I am now officially "Overweight", rather than "Obese". I suggested we get a cake to celebrate.....

Funny thing is, the BMI folks think that at my height, "Overweight" starts at 185. I can't imagine myself at 185. I also can't imagine how I'd get there.

I will also eat beets in salads with goat cheese and roasted walnuts etc.
One of my favorite mezes is the beet “salad”
Grate the beets and lightly sauté them, let it cool and mix with strained yogurt (almost 1:1). add in minced garlic (3-4 cloves), stir and serve.

Replace the beets with raw grated celeriac for my second favorite and replace the beets with raw purslane for my absolute favorite meze. For the celeriac and purslane versions of it, serve with a drizzle of olive oil on top after final mixing.

Celeriac and especially the purslane version goes unbelievably well with fresh grilled fish and raki/ouzo.
