Addiction LXXX

Notices
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

Oh, you poor thing.

For a mile or so, I rode and chatted with another guy. It was mildly surprising that he didn't show up in FlyBys, but I shoulda known from the Ti bike and aerobar extensions.

WTH? I grew up here. That is not the Delaware anywhere bordering the city. Nor is it any part of the Schuylkill River through the city. We do have two, you know. Schuykill means hidden river in Dutch.

Went for a mountain bike ride today, beautiful NE weather today!
The trails are covered in leaves and pine needles making the line challenging to follow.
Pine needles are slippery in off camber turns, the plus side is pine needles are soft
Find the Gnome tail in the background

This is where I went yesterday, that's Santa Monica and West L.A. Mario is on his Orbea 29er hardtail. It's an old pic, he was probably at work.

Do you have a carbon frame builder or repair service in the area? I'm lucky to have a couple, but I hope to never have to use them.
