The Lincoln Highway runs right through my mom's hometown, and our market town growing up. Its claim to fame in those days was the cement slabs separated by rubber expansion strips. K-bump k-bump k-bump for miles and miles.. Annoying

I wanted to get out for a spin, but I wasn't feelin' too sporty today, so I decided to bring my camera along and cheapen some murals by taking pics of my bike in front of them!

Luckily no ice and the sun warmed temps quickly enough that I finished the ride with my jacket zipper all the way down.

Now I want to see a video on the history of Knox County roads.

She could still be lurking.

The folk at rhe workshop suggested a layer of partially composted debris as a first layer, before launching in whith fresh stuff. In my brief experience, they really like crushed eggshells, banana peels, limes. For a new box, they suggest a light layer of dried leaves, then the worms, then the pre-compost, then the rest. Keep us updated on your progress.

Farming worms is serious business.

It's actually a large mural that depicts four seasons - the pic is between two of them. Here's a snip from google street view -

Anything is possible. But I doubt it.

The snow is falling straight down but the wind is blowing her hair and the umbrella's not protecting her from either.

Artistic license. Prolly.

Went swimming after my ride today. Just did two laps, don't wanna overdo it so early in the season. It was a little chilly but I've been swimming in a number of colder rivers, irrigation ditches, lakes and ocean beaches.

Also, she doesn't have feet.

The snow is in winter
The wind is in spring
She is between the two.
The umbrella is for spring.
The snow skirt is for winter.

Bonjour!

Heathpack 04-19-20 03:35 PM

Updates:
1. I have ridden my bike the past four days in a row. I’m tired.
2. This weekend’s baking: four loaves whole wheat bread, 2.5 dozen snickerdoodles, 1 batch cinnamon rolls.
3. I have signed up for Instacart and I’m digging it. My Costco order will arrive imminently.
4. We have been eating too much homemade pizza. In the Uuni portable wood fired pizza oven.

Why doesn't she point her umbrella into the wind so it doesn't break?

Velo Vol 04-19-20 03:36 PM

Time for a milestone ride.

Duh because her umbrella is in spring.

Also, an old friend of Mr H just texted him a pic he found while cleaning out his closet. It’s a pic of Mr H on the lower slopes of Mauna Kea with his hang glider in the back ground. He is posing with two military police officers.

So of course I ask: ???

Oh that’s from the time I flew my hang glider from the top of a volcano and mistakenly flew into a military live fire exercise. Whoops, munitions, attack helicopters flying below me, the MPs arrived before my ride got there to pick me up.

!!!

The MPs are smiling. Mr H is a skinny college kid.

Well and the funny thing is, over in tri-land, the dropped stays are seen as mandatory now and the bikes that don't have it are mocked. The Felt IA is seen as much more advanced than the Cervelo P. Funny thing is, as @WhyFi mentioned, it supposedly improves comfort and handling, but... the P is regarded as more comfortable and neutral-handling, for whatever that consensus is worth.

I'm just fine either way. It does slightly ding that bike on the old-man aesthetic, though.

Would still hit it.
