Rapha Core jersey scheduled to arrive tomorrow.

I might visit the Rapha NYC clubhouse this weekend.

I'd really like to get hands-on with an aero jersey, too - I'll take all the help I can get.

Is there a pencil factory there?

I was hoping to pick up a No.2 while I was in town, but no dice.

You appear to have issues knowing where to go on your trip.

I would recommend this place not too far away, but itís no longer open for lunch. Shame, because I was planning to go the Saturday before Labor Day.

We also went to this stone structure that had a bunch of cannon.

Pencils. But, I did get an ice cream cone after dinner. So the day wasn't a total bummer. ;)

Burlington is much farther north, and on the good side of the lake. Last time I was in Burlington (2018) the lake was rough the second day from a storm front.

Interestingly, coming into Ticonderoga is where I hit my maximum speed crossing the country. Around 49 mph.

No dogs allowed inside,. But I saw some muskets through one of the windows.

I believe I've visited Ft. Ticonderoga, somewhere back in the mists of time. Might have been when Dad piled 7/8 of us into a car that looked like this:

hauling a pop-up camper, from Southern PA all the way to Montreal for Expo 67. Then, on the way back, we stopped to see people and places that meant a lot to everyone in the family but me, since we left Rochester when I was about 3.

You can sail south. See if you can sneak by the fort outside of range of the canon.

Customer is a larger gentleman who is getting recurring rear flats riding gravel on 34mm tires. This might be a good option for him. At least until he gets a set of 650b wheels so he can start running 45mm.

Installation wasn't really too bad. It took a few inflations before they finally sealed and held pressure though. The insert hinders sealant distribution inside the tire somewhat.

I went to the one in San Francisco a few years back. It felt like the Neiman-Marcus of bike apparel. High quality but prices to match. Cool posters on the walls.

I just checked and there is a Rapha Clubhouse in Santa Monica, not terribly far from here. 50-50 I go visit.

Grace made landfall in Tulum at 5 AM, as a Category 1 hurricane. 25mph winds expected to arrive here in a couple hours and continuing through the afternoon. Heavy rain expected this afternoon through tomorrow. This is the fourth tropical storm we've prepared for, each time with a little less prep than the previous time.
