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

Live band just started across the street, about 75 feet from where I am sitting. It's so loud it's ridiculous. I don't know how to describe it but the vocals are in Spanish.
I'm sure people blocks away are hearing it. I'm also sure the people at that house cannot communicate while the band is playing.

Did wonders for me.

And the cause was the transfer of the crystals into the loop that forms part of the ear structure and has an effect on balance. The exercise moves the crystals back out of the loop.

My issue was the result of the workplace accident I had, but it also can be a part of growing older. I have had the treatment four or five times now, and it does work effectively, allowing me to go back to bending over/looking down and working in the garden or on bicycles without getting that odd feeling of being off balance.

I can do that with a structured workout, but not JRA

A cold night. I find myself in the sleeping bag this morning. Freaky weather. I'm jammed up in the woodshop yet again(deadline Tuesday) and will be back on the bike, for some longer, wintertime rides thereafter.

Those wildcard teams are limping to the finish line. Cleveland Baseball team is the hot team now. Congrats to Seattle for ending the post-season drought.

I did a 1 hour fake ride in the basement today. The KICKR Snap still works fine.

Mine lost its reflector again, so I have to replace that before I ride it next. I don't know why they don't just paint it on.
