Addiction 2021.3

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

Nope.

It's not as gray hairish as buying records (), but I saw this person being tweeted about this morning and didn't know who she is. Oof.

I didn’t know who she is either. I still don’t know who she is.

If I told you who I flew for you could look at the routes and that would be cheating.

It wouldn't be cheating, it would be an educated guess.

That makes me feel a little better. I spent the morning trying to make sense of her footwear.

Our cicadas just started a few days ago. They're all fired up tonight after the rain, and only getting up to 97 degrees today.

Haven't been making a peep here in the city, although last Saturday I took a ride on the SRT to Valley Forge and collided with one. Hit me on the arm.

Last year our office building and the one across the street, which has a large courtyard and lots of plants, was ground zero for lantern flies in center city. I am wondering if they have been spraying. Walking through the courtyard to Wawa I have noticed a good number other dead insects, including bees and beetles.

One of my riding buddies works for a startup that makes bike computers. He is a software guy. I just texted him if he can ride tomorrow, and he said he cannot as he is in Italy with pro team ISN at their training camp. I wont say which company, but they make a product that sounds like a marsupial that jumps. Sadly, he did not get to do any riding but he got to hang out in the team car while the team was out training.

Odds for the fish better than last night. I do relate to them. Their life is hard enough swimming upstream, even without facing hungry bears.

High School Musical. Plus a public love triangle so dramatic it gets discussed alongside A-A-Rod and the Packers.

Any time a young person pops up on the news and is apparently famous and I have no idea who that person is I assume they were on a Disney or Nickelodeon show. And I'm usually right.

Also I'm not even that old but when I see the year some of these people were born I feel pretty old. I was on my way to Iraq when this person was born.

Time to get back on the horse, so to speak.

For better or worse, booked a campsite at a state park outside of White Haven. Going to drive to Jim Thorpe Saturday morning and ride the unpaved trail to White Haven (about 25 miles gradually up hill), stop for groceries, backtrack about 1.5 miles then do another 5 miles to camp with nearly 900' of climbing but with some down in between ups. Reverse on Sunday. Going to be hot and steamy Saturday, and there is a 60% chance of rain starting mid-afternoon into the evening. T-storms possible. Have to start somewhere.

Nice. Be careful, and have a good time!

Nice. When I went to the Giro in '95 the race was supposed to go into Switzerland, but the pass they were going to use was still snowed in. We ended up staying put and did a loop ride from the hotel instead. I was good with that.

Thanks. I will try. I need to make sure I don't go push too hard. When I ride long stretches of flat terrain loaded with gear I feel like I should be going faster and usually end up rushing/pushing myself more than I should. Now I will be throwing 25 miles of limestone trail into the mix.
