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

PA has got them some great peaches. Late ones, as you say. We are probably still getting them from the Carolinas.

I’m not invested enough in Strava for that. I’ll just pair my watch to the pedals and be done with it. That’s what I’d been doing for years, only with the Quarqs on my main bikes.

Well, we're watching the video, so at least the camera made it down.

Looking at that, I think my friend's brother's house may have been closer to the bottom than the top.

Well, that is Old Topanga. It starts on the north end a few miles west of Topanga itself and is a nice little climb out of the valley. If you climb Topanga out of the valley it's a faster, more open, sweeping turn kind of road with more cars. Descending from the summit is wide open and eventually the two roads merge where that video ends. It's several miles to the beach from there.

Narrow bars. I can't watch that kind of speed on a bike. From that position anyway. I can watch the TDF no problem.

And no elderberry either. The queen of fruit pies.

That stretch of road isn't scary.Once it joins Topanga you get the fast cars and that makes it scary.

I've done a charity ride called The Lighthouse Century on the central coast. Did it 5 times and the food is outstanding. They have hot Olala berry pie at the lunch stop, along with sandwiches, salads, and hot drinks. They feed you at the end with Tri Tip, vegetarian lasagna, and more Olala berry pie.
They also had a chocolate fondue fountain at the last rest stop.

I've never even heard of tomato pie. Not sure why I'd want one when pizza exists.

OK, but I'd put pecan pie as first in your comparison.
