Addiction 2021.3

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

Nah, natural assumption.

Yes. I have even heard of injecting fuel into the exhaust or catalitic converter , to make more smoke. There are devices sold for just this reason. They also modify the pcm tune for excessive fueling at certain power settings to make this condition possible.

Structured workouts are kinda new to me, but I do like the challenge, if I can actually manage them.
Innsbruck is the shiz. Love that workout

Rockwood, PA. I was riding the GAP as part of a cross-PA tour. Left camp on the other side of the river to go into town for supplies. I was just tooling around. They approached from behind very slowly and then gunned the engine just as I stopped to check out a rail yard. They were too far in front of me by the time the smoke billowed out.

I have not drank from my water bottle in well over a year. My HTFU cred is well established.
