Addiction 2021.1

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

*that’s my twist on White Russian.

The D & S is the national drink of Bermuda. Bundaberg is antipodean rotgut, pure and simple.



Disgusting.



See top post. There is only one way to make a Dark and Stormy, although no bartender is going to give you LOP's proportions.
they must be doing it right then.

I approve of your friend’s decision whole heartedly.

Riding during rush hour is sketchy. No angry drivers but def aggressive. Ended up making a right turn when I wanted to go straight because I didn’t think they would let me over.

Not going to lose sleep over it, but cyclemeter shows average speed of 19.1, when it transfers to strava it drops to 18.3? I feel bad for getting angry at kate, she was telling the truth.

Didnt go to bars from much, but I do remember someone ordering me a surfer on acid once. I think it was Jager, pine apple juice and something else. It was good, somebody should try it.

He was some pissed, I can tell you.
I'd be pissed as well if I brought a bottle of Laphroaig and didn't get to get a drop of it. So what did you buy him as a peace offering?

he’d better not be allowed back in the house unless the good stuff is under lock and key!

Though I have to admit, I’d have to be under lock and key to have a bottle of Lagavulin last 2 years! 4 months is tops under my roof.

I gave him a choice between two cd versions of Handel's Messiah. He took the one with Kiri Te Kanawa.

2 of us rode 60 miles today with some steep climbs. It was 40 at he start and got up to about 50 where we went and it was windy the whole ride. One of those rides when the wind seems to be in your face no matter which way you go.
We went 8 miles up a canyon and crossed over to a different canyon on a road that had a short dirt section on each end and was only one wide lane, There was some granny gear grunting and swirling wind and some traffic due to road closures in the area from snow.

Of course after a sweaty climb comes a screaming descent while you are wet. Fun day, beautiful in those hills. Rain is supposed to be here and the snow might come down to 2500 feet.

Friend of mine wants to start mountain biking. He almost pulled the trigger on a marlin 7, I talked him into a roscoe 6. Naturally he will end up with some kind of GT.
