Addiction LXXVIII

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

Alarm went off and I decided to get much needed sleep. I hope I can find the time later to ride.

Velo, I have to cut my grass this morning. Which way do you have more success with? Vertical Lines or Horizontal? Going for pleasing on the eye as well as efficiency.

Serious mowers know that you should alternate each time, going perpendicular to the direction of the previous cut.

Local guy I follow on strava was almost hit by a car that ran a stop sign yesterday. He didn’t get hit, but crashed trying to avoid being hit, separated his shoulder.

The Keenesburg chamber of commerce seems to have a loose understanding of "few". By my count, soreheads out number Happy People by 191.

I tried to post these yesterday but the site was acting wonky. Two more photos from plowing operations on Going to the Sun Road in Glacier N.P.

Lone coyote and two grizzlies.

I agree. I will say, since the State TT is held out there every year, they tolerate us pretty well when we go out and practice in their area.

Just wondering, how far were you from the grizzlies? Nice photos BTW.

Oof. It was definitely as murky as a shallow pond, but we did it. It was also windy enough to be one of the very few days I'd have preferred moderately shallower wheelset.
