Addiction 2021.4

Road Cycling ďIt 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.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

Yes. They have a 20% off one full-priced item member appreciation sale and later I think, another 20% off spring sale. I have their MasteerCard so I get 5% back even on sale items, which don't qualify for a dividend.

Cool, I think I'll just wait until then, in that case. And yeah, I have the REI MC, too - I rarely use it, but I'll have to remember to use it for that.

Yesterday, my wife took it upon herself to do something that I'd been intending to do for the last week or so: clean the accumulated dust and crud from the blades and grille of the box fan that I use when on the trainer. Holy buckets - it's like a wind tunnel in here now! The low setting seems like it's pushing more CFM than the high setting did!

On yesterday's ride I think I unintentionally ended up in somebody's d**k measuring competition. A couple guys on newer, nicer bikes than I was on, looking significantly more fit and less fat than I. I wasn't trying to beat them or anything, it's just they were going slower than I wanted to, twice (because a short detour I took put me behind them again), and then, because the wind was behind me and I was on a long down hill segment, I just got in the drops and rode tempo for about 3 miles, at the end of which, they passed me, and since I was stopping for water anyway, that's the last I saw of them. They didn't give me "The Look" or anything, so maybe it was just a coincidence, but it SEEMED like they were trying to prove they were faster than a 64 year old fat guy on a 40 year old bike....

Turns out I got a PR on the 'tempo' segment, which is not too shabby, considering I was on a 40 year old bike and Strava says I've ridden that segment 255 times.

There is a guy in the general pop who is trying to sell a Tarmac SL7 Speed of Light. That is such a cool bike.

Or...Recreational Equipment, Inc. Master Card.


Fun fact: My dad grew up In Seattle, and was an avid skier and mountaineer as a young adult around the time REI was founded. His membership number was 4 digits.

I had a hard time spending dividends a couple of years ago and I stopped using that card. I might start using it more to feed the Rapha need, now that they're carrying a decent selection.

I joined late '98 or early '99 in preparation for my cross country ride. My number is 8 digits.

How much shopping do you do at REI to have a credit card there? I only have two credit cards total.

Master Card - like Visa - can be used anywhere.
