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

No, but I can watch plenty of other people doing it, apart from the Olympics.

I assigned weirdness to the wrong character, then.

I've gotten together with three former or current Addicts. None were leery of pics. DougRNS must have something to hide. Witness protection, prolly.

Never more than one at a time, though. Three Addicts in one place? That would be worlds colliding.

I'm not going to spread the virus around, because I don't mingle with many people. Nor would I, if I was in a group of vaccinated people. That's why we have vaccines.

Just saw that in the searches. All things considered - including that its tough to find cycling stuff, I should just buy a new bike. Open to suggestions.

We met at the Papermill La Quita Inn. Doug ? (last name unknown) admitted that his electric lawnmower isn't cutting it.
