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

Not that I'm aware of.



Choke does the job to get it started, but once it's started, partial choke will kill it.



Yes.
Just wondering. Try some new/different gas? Long shot but still.

Consider the horsepower it takes to just run those blowers.

I rented a city bike yesterday and rode from Málaga to Torremolinos and back. Here in Granada busy with family activities so no more cycling. Así es la vida.

Ditto. Just finished disassembling two hot smoked turkeys for those who can’t get enough of the fried chicken. 24 people altogether at our friend’s house. We also did the cornbread stuffing and gravy. Now it is just waiting for 1:00 to pick up the chicken and then on to lunch at 2:00. The wait truly sucketh. I’m starved.

Nice. When I was there in '98 The Rough Guide for Spain, a thorough, pull no punches guide book series, warned of the real chance of robbery in the Albacin. Maybe things have been made safer since then. We explored a bit, but my traveling companion was not comfortable there.

Seems safe here. I imagine the backstreets at night could be sketchy but probably like NYC much safer than BITD.

Every time I have spoken with a native about where we are from, the response has been the same: “Rocky!!”

The tap water here in Granada is very good. I imagine it’s from reservoirs that capture the snow melt off the nearby Sierra Nevada.

Did you see any of the parade today? Daughter #1 marched with her college marching band.

We got the luggage stolen off the roof of our Mini-Minor out front of the motel we were checking in to in Madrid, 1971ish.

The front desk girl in Bruxelles, 2013ish warned I should put my laptop inside the main compartment of my backpack when she saw me walk in with it in the jacket flap thingies, corner sticking out for all to see.

Wonder if that's because of the tweet

when I was touring Andalucia in ‘00 I told someone I was from Philadelphia. He started singing the Springsteen song from the film.

I took a walk but didn’t go down to the parade. Did see some bands after they were done marching. So windy. I took a couple of photos of the river by the falls and had trouble keeping the camera steady
