Addiction 2021.4

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

got my hands on a book about locally made bikes. Right from 1869 to the present. We had quite the bike building industry.

Would depend on who's and or what narrative is being pushed. Even facts become fungible and maliable when enough money is on the table.

My condolences Eric. 🙏

I just realized it's Friday and I haven't been on a bike yet this week. Sunday is out. Could be today. I have to prep for some workers on Sunday but that's not much. December is a busy month.
