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

A very pleasant 51 km ride. It's always good when a ride ends someplace other than where it started. Thus the draw of touring.

one general tip for when the exact hub cone is not readily available. discovered that the curvature of the bearing surface on the shimano 600 was a pretty good "skeleton key" for many applications. it would sometimes require a small change in ball size to make everything come out correctly.

They are certainly are used more similarly in cooking than any other nuts. Very mild but still real allergy. It can present as just itchy skin a day after eating the nuts without any visible changes or as a few blisters on my scalp that heal very slowly.

Ugh, sick kid. The little girl woke up vomiting a little before 5am. She usually goes to preschool on Mondays, but it's looking like a couch and blanket kind of day, instead. I wonder if I can still get in a trainer ride...

Me too, although I’ve never been bike touring anywhere.

I do like a little dish of something, a piece of bread, and an ice cold tulip of Tio Pepe, poured to the rim of the rim. However, I seldom make it to those godawful late suppers.

They've got a hell of an offense. It's fitting that they're beating the **** out of the Rams - they were the juggernaut offense not to long ago, but then defenses figured them out (and they lost some talent) and now they're an also-ran. It makes me wonder how long it'll be until someone comes up with a defensive scheme to slow down Baltimore.

Baltimore pantsed the Patriots, Bill needs a scheme by the playoffs, or we're getting roasted again.
Jackson's raw talent, and speed are a rare and tough combination, combined with the option play, is hard to defend. My feeling is he is taking too many hits, at 22 it's no big deal, but it's gonna take a toll at some point.

Yeah. He's reminding me of a better Colin Kaepernick - he tore up the NFC in the playoffs that year, but came up short in the Harbough Bowl and wasn't as effective after. I think that Jackson is even more athletically gifted, so he'll be even harder to limit, but I'm interested to see what the defenses will cook up. If someone out there schemes up something promising, Bill would be the one to tweak the template should they meet in the playoffs.

He took some unnecessary hits late in the game when he should have been out of there, trying to get to 100 yds rushing I think.

The glaring irony is that to spare Jackson unnecessary hits they bring in none other than RG3.

As a runner, and I'm thinking specifically on the option, you're not afforded the same rules protection as a passer, are you? In HS, when we played teams that ran the option, my D coach always told DEs that our job was to crush the QB, whether or not they tossed the ball off, so as to encourage the QB to toss the ball earlier and earlier, essentially turning the option in to a pitch to the RB. If NFL QB "runners" are similarly fair game, someone's gonna try teeing him up even after the ball leaves his hands.

The latest crop of avocados earn a 10 rating from me, ripening perfectly without any signs of oxidation or bruising when you open them. Exceptional.

I like to open mine, pour in a little honey mustard dressing and eat it straight out of the shell. Yum!

Exactly. Even if it costs them a personal foul here or there, the possibility of dinging him up a bit for the rest of the game, or even the season, is worth it.
