Road Cycling ďIt 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.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

Speaking of hearing loss, the mechanic working next to me today had a tube explode inside the tire they were repairing. It happened about three feet from me. Very loud.

Should not have been tested. The rate of positivity goes down the less people get tested. AIR?

Not being up to date on the current rates for hookers - cheap or otherwise - I donít have a way to judge whether your advice is a good value or not.

Good thing. The rigamorole adjuster from Park Tool is pretty expensive.
