Addiction 2022.1

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

The Cannondale would REALLY benefit from 28s, but getting them into 1995 brakes.......
Even 30s are hard to find

Too much star power distracts from the narrative.

Spring ride from a couple of years ago with the shop owner, featured in the video I posted yesterday. You can tell it's springtime, because of the rider shape and leg color.
