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 would rather ride in a little more heat and a little less humidity, so I'll wait til later.

Non-bicycle repair of the day.

Mounted a new tire to an e-scooter drive wheel.

That would have gone well with your cute Rapha kit.

I wanted the lilac, but I’m currently not buying any Rapha gear in light of recent events and where their owners spend money.

It's tubeless, so no flats out on the road.

I'm just trying to stay away from kit worn by dumpster divers. Don't want to be like them.

Rapha is owned by the Walton family, who dumps tons of money into pro life and stop the steal candidates. I prefer not to have my money go there.

I was aware that they were owned by a pair of the younger Waltons but, given their cycling advocacy and Rapha's leanings, I'd assumed that their views were not necessarily in step with the family in general.

For me 81° would be better. 71° would be much better-er.

Interesting read on the subject: Walmart’s Political Dichotomy Is No Surprise (forbes.com) and Walmart Heirs Shift from Red to Purple: The Evolving Political Contributions of the Nation’s Richest Family | HistPhil

Seems Steuart is an R and Tom appears to be a D. Those are the two that own RZC Investments, the company that invested in Rapha.

Probably because someone, somewhere had to be told.

It reminds me of the saying my brother shared with me - "OSHA regulations are written in smoke and blood." - they exist because someone, somewhere got injured or killed.
