Addiction 2022.2

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

Stealin'? When you should have been buying? It's a repeat but apropos. Enjoy the quality.

Going to the Sun in Glacier is not expected to open fully by the July 4th weekend. Late spring storms have delayed plowing operations and have increased avalanche risk.

My bil arrived with my pair of 32mm gatorskins. A deal at $31 apiece. Alas, there is only one. I specifically ordered two. Months ago. The downsides of sending it to a non-cycling household.
