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

As I've mentioned before, I'm at the age that it's either red, or clear. We're about the same age, so.....

The whole family is currently hanging out in the basement. Severe thunderstorms and we're under a tornado warning... or maybe it's a watch. Whatever - the weather outside is wild. Downpour, wind and the sky is strobing with lightning. Fun times.

I'm listening to a podcast and they just discussed if that's condescending to say that to someone much younger than you.

Of course that doesn't apply here, as you're old, but you get the idea.

This has been going on for the last hour or so - can't say that I can recall seeing such an active sky.

We're out of the basement, now. Sky is still lighting up, but the rain is merely heavy and the wind has died down. The Watch is on until midnight, but I think that the worst has moved through our area.

Met a guy on a ride tonight that was riding an Argon 18 Nitrogen Disk in this color. Sure was a good looking bike, but I don’t know much about the bike.

Boutique brand, been around quite a while. We see them around here often. That one looks pretty hot.
