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 have thought that the increasing size and pendulosity of nearby items more than compensates for any diminishing of the primary bulge. Or, "Why do I have do make adjustments when sitting down, that I didn't have to make as a younger man?"

I thought that was under 5%. Well then I guess I am closer to 12%. I like my ice cream too much.

Side note: 31500 steps for the day.

Beautiful Sunday afternoon. We walked close to 4 miles to get there and walked home afterwards.

Years ago some of our club members were tested and one guy was 3% and another was 2%. I was tested @ 14% at close to 220#. When I toured cross country in 1990 the 2% guy was in our group. He was faster than the other 3 of us and we sometimes sent him ahead to scout the next town.

You would have forgotten about the Owls game if I hadn't reminded you.
