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

Fixt.

Hills, wind, chipseal, gravel, drafting... there are lots of things that make distance a weird metric to focus on. But, here we are.

That could be fun. I'll post mine, or maybe stick them in the Strava title.

I'm quite upset that I have a Wednesday morning meeting that'll prevent any real riding. That'll be a swim day.

I'm currently riding 23, 25, and 27. No need to go bigger. Ten years ago I was riding wider tires.

I was at 7228 kj for the week. That seems like a decent amount for a schlub.

Unless I'm going a really long way (like longer than I've ever gone) and have to have dry butt, I'll just embrace the suck or stay inside. Cyclocross is great training for the former.
