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

But I figured what the hell, I can figure this out, I'll just make sure I have all day. It wasn't too bad once I got used to the location and the funky angle of the plugs.

I sold my SSMTB last year. My knees decided they were too old for that.

I wondered if you did. She's on the city council or something?. First time I saw her on the road was on a NYD ride to Mount Wilson years ago. She and her not yet husband were on 'cross bikes. She was going ahead and dropping back and teasing other riders, including me and her guy. Anyway after we got to the top they went back to Pasadena on the trails through Mt Lowe, etc.

She's organizing and promoting cyclocross racing again. Some of the ladies I know became good friends with her.

Like many cars, the hardest part is getting the plug wires off without destroying them.
