It's not marigold.

It folds up to nothing. If the ride is cool to start then gets warmer, it stows easily. If there's a threat of rain, you bring it along. I also use it as another layer. Thanksgiving started at 22, so I had a ss base layer, a long sleeve jersey, that coat and a vest. The vest is for extra pockets, and the coat and Toko over mitts were put away halfway into the ride.

Electric gloves were fine for temps around freezing. I have some doubts about temps well below freezing, but will wait to try them then.

there's a small subset of people who consider those to be problems.

This reminds me that I need to sew my previous Festive 500 patch on to my jacket before the VA trip.

Like many on BF, I got an email from Specialized advertising stuff for sale for the holidays. My wife would like to have a new machine so I followed the links in the email to the bikes for sale section of their website. Of course, they have no bikes available in any size for a Roubaix or S-Works with Di2. None. I’ve had the same result with emails from other bike manufacturers and I understand about supply problems, blah, blah, blah.

I guess they don’t want us to forget they exist even though they don’t have bikes to sell anymore.

My last infusion was five weeks ago. I just realized that thereafter, I failed to put my driver's license back with the other cards. So I've been driving most of that time without a license.

Oops.

Good thing I'm a model driver!

No translation needed, it was very clearly written.

They know that I want the metallic white Evade with maroon trim, so they've obviously not going to put that on sale.

Would a model driver stay out of the left lane? If yes, that's what I do.

datlas 11-28-21 01:31 PM

On the Tour de Jersey, there were lots of drivers cruising in the left lane at 55. That’s despite big signs stating “Slower Traffic Keep Right.” Sigh.

Hard to say. Self-proclaimed model drivers take it upon themselves to regulate traffic as they see fit.
