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

Correct. It's reaching the western edge of the metro area. I took a nap after a busy day of bill paying, checkbook balancing, lawn mowing and dog walking. #AsleepAtTheSwitch

Rango's feeling a lot better, no longer vomiting, and he ate some plain boiled chicken with some rice when we went to see him today, so they released him! He's home! Poor boy's a little loopy from the drugs and the experience, but glad to be home!

I may have confused you. This is a canal along the Delaware River. The trail is a former towpath.

got passed by a fleet of scott addicts today. I didn’t look closely but all appeared to be the same paint job, and I think one of the guys name was scott. Someone yelled Scott! I know they weren’t talking to me.

A lot of people new to the mup today. If they arnt new, then they have no excuse.

Waving was around 60 percent. That percentage is of me responding to waves. Sometimes I just didn’t have it in me, or I saw it too late, or I didn’t see it at all.

Hopefully that clears it up for the waving questions.

I always say good morning when passing, especially when i’m passing walkers. Trying to diffuse the tension.


I did come up on a walker that refused to get over which left me puzzled. Bike hitting walker, bike wins.

There are celebrated canals along the Potomac and Mohawk rivers too. Coincidence?

Right. So from that, we can conclude....?

No canals built here. The American people turned one of the nation's great waterways into a 600-mile "canal."

My ex wife and I bought a house in the mountains, about 70 miles from here, in 1993 for $70k. Tonight I saw it was for sale for $350k.
