Addiction 2021.4

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

Riding the cobbles and shooting the **** does seem like a good way to make a living. I'd probably prefer to be on my full suspension though

I was watching Paris-Roubaix and since spoilers aren't allowed, I had nothing to post.

Followed that up with a ride with my bride, then mowed my lawn, and finally grocery shopping.

What a great day.

David Byrne has a dairy, who knew?

Must be dairy gear they're wearing in this video.

Taking a picture.

Red Sox at home due to winning the regular season head to head 10-9. 1 game play in game to play the Tampa Ray's, the number 1 seed.

If the photo in post #303 is the sole product of said stop, you need to work on your skills. A viewer can barely make out the features of the dairy.
