That's funny, given that up here it's only recently been possible to get interesting flavors in non-dairy.

Just wasted 2 hours building Ikea book case. Stand it up and the bottom shelf is backwards. I have to take the whole thing apart now.

So on todays ride, after one of the hills another rider mentioned that even when coasting I should keep pedaling even if slowly, but I didnít understand why. He made it sound like it helped the rider behind me see but I guess I donít get it.

Thoights?

I think not, unless you need to descend faster. Otherwise tuck with cranks horizontal.

See that youíre not braking, maybe. Thatís my only idea.

But the non-dairy is non-food as well.

I have heard it said that keeping the pedals moving aids in maintaining balance, as in a gyroscope. This was advice given to a first time tourer by an old salt. I just happened to be standing nearby

About an hour ago I walked up to an octogenarian-looking customer and asked how he was.

He said "Great! I just saw the movie."

Of course I knew which movie right away, but asked him anyways, "THE movie?"

So far the reviews I've heard are:

"******* amazing!" - friend in Vanco, WA
"It was amazing. They have it on 4 screens over there." - octogenarian at work (I work approx 100 yards from a movie theatre)

Oddly enough they both referred to it as simply "Top Gun", not Top Gun 2 or Maverick.

I'm at lowrider night in downtown Glendale, and I walked by La Perla and a cholo on the patio said "Hey bro, I like your ****."

I dunno if he was just diggin' my sweet Chuck Taylors or if he was trying to gauge if I was police by my response.

Tried to watch a couple innings of snooze ball, with UT in the SEC semifinals, and whew, watching that will knock you right out. #InsomniaCure

I got roped into going to a fake downtown “Main Street” in King of Prussia with my wife and daughter yesterday. The do have an REI so I checked out their cycling items. I was pleasantly surprised that they had a decent amount of basic needs, but I felt like their merchandise was in a 5+ year time warp. Their Shimano cassettes were all Ultegra 6700. Their Garmin compueter showed the 130 not the 130+. Even so, was fun to look around while mrs datlas and heidi were shopping.

Cassette-wise, it makes a bit of sense - 6700 is 10-speed, and it's fairly likely people shopping for cycling stuff at REI are not on the cutting edge. Speaking of Edge though, that part is harder to accept.
