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

We have an indestructible acrylic French press on the boat, but no grinder. When we anchor out, the skipper almost always gets up before I do and the smell of coffee brewing is what gets me out of the rack.

Found out how my friend crashed on Saturday.

He ate his usual food before leaving his house to drive to Charlottesville. That’s a 2.5 hour drive and he didn’t eat anything else before the ride began or during the ride. While coming down hill he began to get the shakes, we think from low blood sugar, and he went off the side the road and rolled down the side of the mountain/hill. He’s doing okay now, had surgery yesterday.

His s-works is unharmed. That thing has 9 lives. Specialized needs to reach out to him and use his bike for advertisement, that thing has survived a beating, and as far as I know doesn’t have a scratch on it.

Waiting at physical therapy appointment, doubt it will help. Probably can't hurt. Probably.

This is what I take touring. 15 oz. Works well and double-walled so it keeps coffee hot for a good while. Most welcome on cold mornings.
