Addiction LXXIV

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

If there's still snow on the ground, Christmas lights aren't out of place.

Not to worry, all bikes present and accounted for. Unfortunately one collar bone did not survive the ride intact.

Looks like a fun group. Sorry about the clavicle. Not yours, one assumes.

No, I grabbed his bike by the stem and wheeled it out on the easy trail. Someone else grabbed his hydration pack and helmet, so he could walk back out unencumbered, arm to chest. Luckily those jumps they were hitting were only 1.5 miles from the cars.

Ever read a response to a BF post you made and think "How in the wide, wide world of sports did you misread what I wrote so badly?"

I had coffee this morning. I am back among the living. Still not hungry though, nor in full control of my balance.

Just installed a 2015 Campy Ultratorque crank in my Gianni Motta. Total time less than 15 minutes. Easy as pie. Campy Specs on chain stay length say 405 mm minimum. Mine is 405.2 mm. Whew!
