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

Surgeon said no riding for 1 week. I had just started using the trainer. So I get to start all over next week. Great.

And cause more problems than they are worth.
If you can get marine fuel, or better yet aviation. It's worth it to run out the last tank of the year and use the marine blend to store it
No goop in the bowl, but there was certainly some corrosion. It hasn't been run for... close to two years?

Snowblower prep here this weekend. I'll probably throw in a new spark plug, just because it's been a while.

No prep needed when you have an awesome shovel like me.

I love the smell of awesome shovels in the morning.

I don't appreciate the under 30 ride to work. DeWalt gloves out.
