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

Not sure how much difference 15 seconds makes (how does that not blow out the ground?), but I've been camping in the wilds and didn't see half that many stars.

Putting my real UT education to use, I see that it might be possible if you're skinny enough. WhyFi

Got home and realized that I had lost my metal tire irons through a hole in the bag.
Thanks for the heads up.

Florida and Alabama trying to steal our water goes to the Supremes on Monday.
After we win, come on down and raise a glass of pure Chattahoochee deliciousness to celebrate.

Pretty much this, 4-5 mph slower on these vs 28mm GP5k. I am guessing a better tire can get that down to one or two. But... just happy to be outside

“Paper” that’s what one uses to cut flesh right? Dangerous devices that are found in office environments.

I will bring a gallon of clear Tellico River water, which you will eye enviously as you raise your daily half-cup water ration.

I enjoy reading the local paper and staying informed on local issues. I also use the bags that they are delivered in for poop bags for little Roscoe. I also recycle the paper for my brother who has a repair shop. he uses them as covers on the floors of customers cars so they are not soiled while in his care.

below is what I took up to him last time I was up north in 2019. That is a years worth of papers.

1. I don't know i don't live in Paulding County.

2. The AJC doesn't cover the much needed Cobb County news I crave.
