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've never used it. Would be difficult since it's missing the handle. Maybe I should fashion a handle out of some scrap lumber we have lying about.

Them there is spades, not shovels, and I will be happy if I never have to use any of those tools again. However, I would love to have a lime tree.

That's an orange tree unfortunately. We always called the one in the middle a shovel, the one on the right a drain spade.

I call the one on the right a cutting spade. Don’t know what the other one is called. Too bad about the tree. I was thinking about all the gin and tonics.

The shovel spade don’t work ‘cause the vandals took the handle.

Looks like Home Depot calls 'em border spades or edging spades. Guess drain spades all have round bottoms, but we just called any of those skinny bladed ones drain spades.

So, experts, why don’t cycling interval workouts include “ladders” or “pyramids,” where the interval duration or intensity is varied progressively? I used to sort of like them when I was vainly trying to compete at swimming.

I've done 3'-4'-5'-4'-3, but in all honesty, if you're doing something like that, may as well go all in, and just do 5x5'.

Tempting, low hanging fruit.
