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

Ok. Your concern makes sense. The rationale does not. We use ours all over Mexico and Belize, and the USA without issue. And without calling the bank.

It took YEARS for my bank to finally realize that my job requires me to travel all the time. Up until about 2 years ago my card was constantly getting locked. I pleaded with them to put a note in my file that my job requires me to continuously travel so that it’s normal for a purchase to be made in Charlotte and then 3 hours later in Detroit. I’m not sure what they did but I don’t have that issue anymore.

I blame Al Gorithms. One time I paid for an expensive Rx then went to the grocery store right next door to the pharmacy. Card declined. I called the bank. Again got the suspicions explanation despite the fact that I purchased that same Rx a couple of months before from the same pharmacy for the exact same price.

I went to the club today and went on a 65ish mile loop with friends and others. At the coffee stop we encountered 2 old friends who no longer come to club rides. One of these guys is 76 and was one of the best climbers in our club years ago. We asked him to join us on our ride which would add a few miles to what he was doing. He said his battery on his Garmin was low so he couldn't do it. After much ridicule from the group he finally agreed to come with us.

Later, when we had some hills he went off the front and we never saw him after that. While we were riding we passed a group of about 20 riders at the side of the road and I recognized a guy I rode with in the 90s. They started rolling and I had a chance to catch up with him for a few minutes. That was an unexpected treat and I can't remember the last time I saw him but it may be more than 20 years. He moved out of the area back then.

I read that the winner of Unbound Gravel today averaged over 21 mph for the 200 miles of dirt and mud and it came down to a 4 man sprint.

We had a TR-3 for a while - late 80's/early 90's. Ours was red.

Yesterday I watched highlights of last year's and it was the same, mote-or-less. The same five led the whole race. The first woman across the line had a time right around 12 hours. Looks like a fun ride, if only one had the stamina.

This year the first woman finished in around 10 1/2 hours at 39th overall. There was a lot of mud and she said being an experienced cross racer taught her how to run with the bike.
The 50 mile option might be more to my liking.

Mine had Ford SW's in '62, 64, and 66. Then he departed from that and got an Oldsmobile, and then the Citroen.
