What's wrong with this?

4 of us had a nice ride today. Stopped for a slice of pizza, which is a lot by itself, but one guy went into a different place and came out with a giant brownie which he hacked into 4 pieces so I had to eat that, too.
Other friend seems to be doing better, a lot more like himself. Don't know if he's ready to go back to 300 mile weeks but he wants to ride Saturday and might go out again before then.

Re read this, I think the A group would cause my Ritchey to Breakaway.

I am tempted to try when I get back from work on Monday.

Also, Iíll be in Austin for 2 long over nights, as well as Detroit.

Iíll prolly hang out at Johnies the first day, any other recommendations would be cool if anybody has any.

Rent a gravel bike and ride around the lake. Itís not a workout, but a nice way to enjoy a day.

An email appeared in my Inbox - "These Foods Destroy Memory! {AVOID!}"

So I moved it to my Spam folder.

10 minutes later, I look in my Inbox, and what do I see? "These Foods Destroy Memory! {AVOID!}" So I move it to my Spam folder

But then I thought, "Didn't I move that to the Spam folder? I could swear I remember doing that!" So I look in my Spam folder, and now there are TWO emails there, titled "These Foods Destroy Memory! {AVOID!}"

I suspect they're trying to gaslight me.

19.24 Million bikes valued at $1.96 Billion? That's only $100 a piece.

My dad drove a 53 Buick out here from Cleveland in 1956. He later had a 56 Century wagon and a 56 Special.
I never had one but I liked the 57.

I have a different Easy Rider scene in mind regarding ebikes, but it's violent and I already committed one boo boo today.
