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

Then there was the Renault 5, or Le Car. The first time I opened the hood and saw the engine was behind the transmission was a WTF moment.

Home is where the hammock is. Swinging gently.
I learned to drive stick when I applied for a pizza delivery job, in college, and told the guy I knew how. An old Bronco.

My daughter had a side gig as a divemaster for a scuba excursion company when she was a Fulbright Scholar in Iceland, which included driving a standard shift vehicle full of customers. She decided (as usual) to fake it and only lasted a few days, but it may have had more to do her limited ability to schlep tanks over the rocks than the driving.

I like that there is only one per day, so you don’t get sucked in.

With a chain prep for wax, I’ve read all of the steps and have a question for you. Have you ever used a citrus degreaser instead of mineral spirits? What about the last step with a solvent like acetone? My preference is not to use harsh chemicals I can’t dispose of.
