It looked to be a tough stretch on a bike hauling your living quarters, including the kitchen.

Are you saying the Nati doesn't have traffic? I'm pretty sure it does. That photo was at ~2:00 p.m.

I'll just have to believe you without any convincing proof.

Maybe I should take up knitting, then I could do that while listening to the Mariners game.

Or maybe just keep posting here, but the phone thumb is getting tired already.

Getting ready to ride and the Habanero has a flat tire.

Looks like a fine day to ride the Roubaix.

Up and at 'em.

There's plenty of better stuff to watch online. Like this. Visitor alert!

A puncture from a frayed shifter cable. Prolly.

Crushed the ride to the train station!

You wouldn't guess this place is in the middle of soybean/corn fields, but that's how they roll in Dumbdumb Land.

I'm happy to report that the seven people in our party combined carried 0 ml of water on this hiking activity. Mojo31

I donít carry water on strolls around the local park either.

LesterOfPuppets 09-11-21 07:13 AM

In other cockpit news, I was briefly convinced I needed these on all my bikes.

Then the sticker shock set in. One US retailer wanted $70, and another wanted $82.

It was a proper hike! On a rocky rim trail, down into the gorge, and up again. Lasted more than an hour.

I'd probably order a Ti bolt to go in there

Was right behind an ugly crash today. We were going about 35 mph with a trash truck blocking the opposite lane. A driver behind the truck pulled pulled out across the double yellow, people hit the brakes, and one rider went down hard. Looked like a fractured clavicle and very painful. Felt terrible and glad I wasn’t involved. The driver and trash men both treated us to a stream of invective as they drove off.

People are ugly^^^^^
I'm settling into my new persona. I can become anybody I want to become. Perhaps I'll become Velo Vol 2.0

Slow day. Everyone but me must be riding or playing softball. Or something.
