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'm trying to remember. I grew up North of Moon Pie territory, so I haven't had them much. I seem to recall the crumbliness of the cookie varies a bit, but mostly they hold together reasonably well.

Back in the ‘80s when Cytomax came out, they gave me a big box to try out. The only flavor was apple. I didn’t mind it, but my wife about puked on the stuff.

I'm sure. I'm talking about the old burbs where I live. Down by the coast or Hollywood Hills or Bel Air, etc. would be more like your area.

Yeah, the Peninsula makes a fairly small area very valuable.

Definitely. We bought in 1996, after a brief period of uncharacteristically stable prices. Today? Not sure where we'd have to live.

With the possibility of relocation having been mentioned, I took a look at houses near our MD facility. Sticker shock compared to where we've been looking, but about 1/4 of prices here.

Also, I've often thought what Mom and Dad's house would bring out here. 3000 sq ft, two garages, 1 3/4 acre of land....

I bring peanut butter and honey sandwiches, but today I was feeling fast so I worked my race team kit. The pockets always seem to eject my sandwiches but nothing else. I should have known.

And, when you went out for a ride, this would be a lot of your view. Beans would be most of the rest with a little wheat thrown in. This is pretty close to most of your climbing, too.

Lordy. That's flat.

My nephew was out here for a conference and came by to visit. He lives in Virginia Beach, which is pretty damn flat. He found all our hills very intimidating.
