Addiction 2022.2

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

Edit: This comes from learning a second language. We went deep into grammar. And something like this would be very noticeable in Spanish. Possibly glaring.

Good luck with the sponsor. Play up the benefit to him.

So far no dice, but I am very persistent.

Fun fact. On my most recent flight, over a year ago, the first leg was delayed by 2 hours or so.The connection would be tight but doable. And then the second leg was delayed by an equal amount.

I only went to a couple big outdoor races and a bunch of supercross events. I went to the USGP at Carlsbad 3 times. Such a fun place, you could bring an ice chest and lawn chairs and set up anywhere around the track. I think the first time was 1971.

I also went to Saddleback once. It was a national event when they had 500cc, 250cc, and 125cc all on the same day. I think it was the last race there before the whole place was turned into a housing development. Same thing happened to Carlsbad.

Just remembered I went to an outdoor race in Las Vegas but I don't remember if it was called a national. I just remember Bob Hannah dragging his handlebar in the turns.

It was so hot that I didn't see jogger girl today. I guess she might have gone by when I was away from the street, but I'm guessing she bailed.

I did see a guy riding a street bike with what looked to be a 1:1 gear ratio. SMH

Bryan, if the power is out, obviously there is a reason. Just because you don't know what it is, doesn't mean there isn't one.
Edit: I was further behind that I thought. Sorry. Put some salve on the dead horse for me.
