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

For some reason I seem to be immune to LPLO. I think it hit me once a few months ago. I use chrome on MacBook and Safari on iPhone fwiw.

basically. I’ll have to get a crash pad and essentially live there on my work days and then come back home on my days off. I also pray I have more than 2 days off in between or it’s going to really be tough.

Woof. That'd blow. Welp, fingers crossed that it's not for long, if it does come to pass.

Is it ok for someone in your line of work to use the word crash so casually?

So the rubber strap to my Cygolite Dice front blinkie broke. The replacement strap is only $2.95 (which is reasonable IMO) but shipping is $7. I can't bring myself to pay that. Any fellow thrifties have suggestions short of a zip-tie?

The rubber strap on my Serfas e-Lume 600 headlight broke. Warranty item from Serfas. We keep them in stock at the shop.

I contacted cygolite they said it would be under warranty only if 1 year old and this one is 2 years old. I may try asparagus or broccoli bands. Or will try to find a code for free shipping.

Mrs. GeneJockey ordered some fancy dogfood that comes frozen in packets, and they use big rubber bands to put 7 packets together. Those rubber bands turn out to be the PERFECT size for tying up a folded-up tubular tire!

Okay, so that used up 3 of them. Now, what to do with the other dozen or more....

Works best on the bartape, it jiggles around way too much on bare bar.
