Addiction LXXVIII

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

I'd be wearing spikes.

Shirtless guys with homemade aero bars on their hybrid scare me, though. I try to keep my distance and avoid eye contact.

But Sebago says, they are "the perfect nautical footwear."

Confession: I had a pair of Docksides back in the 1980s. I did not always wear socks with them.

Speaking of being a father, my son got me a Star Wars Lego set for Father's Day. My son happens to be obsessed with both Star Wars and Legos. This is the second time that he's gotten a Lego set as a gift for me. He's so thoughtful.

For the record, I often follow up a big week with a light week so I’ll probably collapse next week.

I will keep it in mind. I should be able to do 200+ miles weekly as long as weather cooperates. I am off next 2 fridays too so may approach 300 miles/week.
