Addiction 2021.4

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I don't know them.

Too fat for this sport, no doubt.

I do know it's less than 170. Most likely within five pounds of 150.

I was, very briefly, at 20. I dropped out of college and went out on my own with no idea of how to properly feed myself. I graduated high school, at 17, weighing in at 218. A stable 172 now.

I thought it was more a matter of being obscured by all the other bulges.
