Addiction 2021.3

Notices
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

Driving home tonight there were people everywhere, and I mean everywhere, doing gymnastics floor exercises in driveways, lawns, and even in the streets.

Whatever your LBS has in stock that fits you? maybe buy a gravel/adventure bike as well as a regular road bike. Add a MTB and you have most bases covered.

I am contemplating a daybreak ride tomorrow morning. Start temps will be 57F. Who needs a gilet in July? Me, possibly.

My Giant Propel has an 1-1/4" steerer.

sad.
I mowed yesterday and my 80v mower batteries were fine but my trimmer and blower(s) all had dead batteries which I've never had happen before. I'm assuming the heat did it to them.

I use them every 3-4 days and have a regular charging routine but my routine failed me yesterday.

genejockey oh, hey - I haven't completely forgotten, but I still haven't laid my hands on that GPU. Digging around in the closet has turned up nothing, so I'll have to brave the basement. I know that I gave some hardware away to one of my ~nephews, but I don't think that the card was included in that, so I'll look a little more.

I think I will only need it the first 1-2 hours tomorrow. Most days are hot and humid, tomorrow is unusually cool.

I'm getting pretty slick at running new derailleur cables all up in my plastic bike frame. I'll get it down to five minutes by the time I buy bike with electronical shifting.

An hour since last post? Since when did employment responsibilities interfere with your BF postings? This is preposterous, folks!
