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

Hmm, would people driving south be going to GA or OH? I guess I should have asked them.

If they were in Detroit, home of the Lake Erie Lions, it could be either.

The latest episode, however, was the worst I can recall and I was speculating that when I hit the ground several weeks back it may have been a contributing factor. It has seemed more touchy since then.

Say goodbye to the Pink Elephant Car Wash sign on Denny Way.


When she says "Ohio", say "Seattle" instead.

Its always been my belief that the human race is the poster child of the Peter’s Principal. Just evolved enough to wipe ourselves out in so many ways, but not evolved enough to stop it.

I regret to inform that, contrary to all common sense and the laws of nature, for the reasons stated above, I shall journey to Ohio tomorrow.

That's as dumb as gravel riding.

Ooof. Couldn't so no, eh?

At least there are plenty of songs about Ohio to listen to while driving.
