Addiction 2022.2

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

You didn't ask about lightening bugs.

Roundup (multiple varieties), Amdro, tetrathiazide, Spartan (for skeeters), skeeter dunks, Image, etc., etc., etc. Plus, a bunch of other stuff that you can't buy at Home Depot to keep the skeeters away.

Headset is tight again. I guess I'm have to take it as cry for help. Get out the tools and see what's what.

Doesn't that fall under the infield fly rule? Or is that old news?

Some blue pills and an open wallet are all you need to appear to be 25 again.

That brings us to the 70s rock song of the day (almost) (it might've been recorded in 1979)

It's my favorite bike lately. I have it down to 23.5 lbs. Hoping for sub-23 with a reasonable seatpost upgrade.

A young woman used to ride with us on this Trek. She also wore pink shoes, helmet, and jerseys. Miss her.

He's doing the professional chef thing too.
