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

Love has never been and never will be free. In fact, it's one of the most expensive things you will ever receive.

There's a cost for utility, of course. No free rides, unless you're a cat.

That was her early adolescent stage, roughly comparable to a human early adolescent girl child.

Result: Negative.

I still feel like $#!+, but it's like pre-COVID $#!+.

Or, this.

Something I read, and as a bicycle cyclist/racer, one can see where they're coming from.

You're offered $50,00.00 but if you accept it, the person you hate the most in the entire world gets $100,000.00. Are you taking it?

"Why would I not accept it? I could use $150,000.00"
