Addiction LXXVII

Notices
Road Cycling ďIt 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.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

No one cares about the critters at the bottom of the food chain.

Sad.

They are. I went with the Giro Vanquish, in the name of having a visor for a little extra sunburn protection after a bad experience last year.

My bontrager has a visor, but I feel like the helmet sits really high on my head. If I wear a skull cap in the winter it almost looks ridiculously high.

Good for you! Itll get better in time. Patience grass hopper. I dont know if you partake but get a mirror. I use a helmet mounted mirror and love it. I rely on it heavily. After a while you developed an awareness with it in your peripheral vision, you'll know when you need to look.

My Rando bike.

I will admit to a big seat wedge so I could fit 3 tubes, and extra Co2 cartridges.

Caliente!
