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

Everyone I know with a Greyhound calls them 45 mph couch potatoes.

I've eaten the same thing for breakfast every day since 2006 and there's nothing wrong with me.

Yep! Which is why you don't let them on the couch. Or the bed.

Seriously! "Mister Rogers Neighborhood" was filmed in Pittsburgh, and of course the plant where Dad worked is also in PA - though its about a 4 hour drive. And the company decided Dad would be their best spokesman to show Mister Rogers how applesauce is made. So Dad was on Mister Rogers, back in about 1984.
My sister's late husband made wonderful applesauce. He used multiple varieties of apples and sweetened it with strawberries. I would ask for some to take home when we went there.

I worked on cars starting in 1971 and was a G.M. dealer tech from 1989 until I retired. I have worked on Hondas and Toyotas and many other brands and I'm not particularly impressed with any brand. I've also owned different brands and the worst cars I've had were an International Harvester truck, a Volvo, and a Toyota. I stick with G.M. cars now because I have access to parts and service and information and programming and whatever I need to keep them going on the cheap.

If not for those advantages I wouldn't be brand loyal but I'm always selective about the model I buy.

Based on that, I'd be willing to bet you never owned a Renault.

lol. No, but I worked at a dealer where we serviced them. The Alliance and the Encore weren't too bad once I got the hang of them. The Fuego and the Le Car were from hell, however.
I was teaching automotive classes at a school here for a few years. I told someone that a Fiat was the worst car in the world and one of the other teachers overheard me. His reply was "Obviously you've never worked on an Audi".

I was sort of near there last September. Rode up PA 233 from Caledonia State Park but only got as far as Shippensburg Road. From there I plunged down to PA 234 and continued east. Pretty area.

When we received the box with Dad's ashes, one of my sisters tied one of his bow ties around it. Also, put Mom's pearls around her box.

I guess that may seem weird, but that's how we roll.

234? So you went through the Narrows, and through my ACTUAL hometown, Arendtsvillle?

You can put a cycling jersey around it. A Castelli Large ought to be about the right size, given the boxes are about 6" on a side.....

I told my wife that if I go first, it's up to her what they do with my remains. Donate the organs (if they work ok) and the rest is up to them.

I prefer the Halo, but only in July/August.

Yep. I have been through there twice. 2013 and 2020. First time I took 234 from U.S. 30. Nice little stretch is the Narrows. Stopped at that little park across from the gas station to eat a snack both times. Took 234 all the way to its eastern end.

The Narrows used to be a fun place where we'd go and just clamber over boulders in the creek for fun. Then somebody bought it and posted it.

Mrs. GeneJockey wants a Green Burial, or alternatively to be composted. All I can think of is "So, that'll be your accomplice there in the wood chipper?"

Speaking of blueberries and strawberries, I just blew up my lo-carbs daily allowance with a reckless post-workout smoothie. The berries, along with half a banana, protein powder and coconut milk totaled a whopping 34 grams of carbs, blowing past my daily allowance of 27 grams max.

Tomorrow's another day.

Right. It only messes with the Goggle. I use Brave, which is a Goggle based thing.
