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

I think my heart rate was higher during the game than it was on this morning's ride.
Just imagine what it was like playing him the Super Bowl. Twice. 1 out of 2 ain’t bad.

We have “at home” tests that qualify for travel. I have a half dozen BinaxNOW AG card tests.

One thing good to know is that everyone on the plane will have tested negative before boarding.

Sad, but true: I've already ridden more miles this month (winter cycling) than I did during eight months in 2021.
