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

Ride from 2019. Wish I had heart rate data back then, I am sure it was through the roof.

Quality.

My father and a friend, who were both lawyers who had some interesting cases in their lives, penned an idea for a TV show involving lawyers at a firm. They sent it off to some company in Hollywood. May have been MTM. I can’t remember. A few years later “L.A. Law” started airing. They didn’t have enough basis to claim copyright infringement.

Somehow I had avoided this dreaded warm-weather nemesis until today. There was a swarm out seeking to inflict pain upon me.

The old unit had that stand-off screw and the “braze-on” has its own pressure plate. Sticking that thing onto the tube with the derailleur mounted would have been a bit fiddly. My cable is frayed from the clamp on the old one and needs to be replaced, but I got the end through the cap and put an end cap on it. I was afraid I’d lose it otherwise.

Ugh. The Bloat has begun.

I'm not accustomed to eating out so much and, between big serving sizes and the inlaw's eating schedule, I find myself stuffed all too frequently when we're in VA. Today was no different - I was still full from lunch but the in-laws wanted to go out for Mexican at a place that I like.

I felt sorry for our server - a table of six, including two kids, two people splitting a meal (MIL and BIL) and my wife and I, who were too full for anything besides drinks and half-heartedly picking at chips and salsa. I knew that my MIL would pick up the tab, and I'm appreciative of that, but I also knew that the tip would suck. I decided that the only sensible thing to do would be to order a shot of tequila, after the tab had been settled, so that I could lay some suitable gratuity down. I tell ya - the sacrifices I make.

Years ago I helped paint from time to time. The worst of it was when you're up on the ladder and one or more starts coming after you. If you're stationary, they basically keep coming back until you kill them.

On Richmond, too, right? Haven't been. I'm sure it's good, too. It's weird - besides pancake houses, Mexican restaurants seem to be the most numerous in the area.

Too many people in the Philly bike club are notoriously cheap. On more than one occasion I and a couple of others have supplemented tips.

One ride I used to lead every year went to a small lunch counter type place associated with a marina. A dozen people was a lunch rush for them, but they always gave us fast, friendly service and offered to fill our bottles with ice and water. I felt compelled to tell the group to make sure they tip well after I witnessed people cheaping out one year.

On the Schmidt Sting Pain Index, sweat bee stings are rated a 1.0, where 1 is the least pain of all. For reference, honey bee stings are rated a 2: twice as painful.

When I was ute, I was climbing a tree and bumped my head into something more yielding than a branch. Then my head started itching so I reached up to scratch it and came back with 3-4 bald-faced hornets on my hand. I screamed, let go of my grip on the tree, fell to the ground and ran screaming for the kitchen door. I think I got off a lot lighter than I thought at the time, but for decades after I could still see a couple tiny red marks where the f***ers got me.
