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

No Bible Belt or Borscht Belt indicated, map fail.

Are there any other Belts in the US of A?

Maybe Grain Belt, is that a thing?

I have found that my laptop actually works better with the blue tooth and ant dongle, without the companion app functioning. I haven't had one drop without using the companion app but the one time I used it It dropped twice.

I'm not buying it. If there's a "Deep North," shouldn't there be a "North?"

Agree it's not that good a map. People from NY State will likely disagree that they have been excluded from New England.

Ten years after, I struggle nearly as much to do a metric century as I did with an Imperial century. The following day though, is almost normal, as opposed to those days of slinking around the house looking for something to eat.

Upper mid-west is Nebraska and Iowa. Minnesota is the frigid f'ing north. Right up there with North Dakota, Michigan and Montana.

People are never going to agree on the boundaries/definitions of regions. Maps need to have grey zones to accommodate overlap.

Grey areas are all well and good, but wrong is wrong. The distant and skewed view of a Tejas compadre doesn't carry much weight against the region's citizens and multiple national agencies.
