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

We haven't even had a foot of snow yet this season. Sad.

How great would it be if we had no measurable snow all winter?

Very.

After further review I can see that is a steep slope. I been victim of a slope like that. Nature and gravity might hate me.

In any event, I hope Santa delivers the goods for you tonight.. Maybe a red Ryder bb gun with a compass in the stock.

Thanks. Maybe he can start with a service rather than goods--healing my buttocks/hip from my leaf-blowing accident.

Nope. That's where they have/had two maniac dogs I saw running around a few times, see post # (sometime during the summer).

Went for a ride at 0 dark 30 before the little one woke up. A little uncanny, 60 degrees. Over dressed as SOP, fun little ride. Extremely windy but since there was literally zero traffic I was able to ride in the middle of the road.

Used the heavy duty light this morning and put the ion on my helmet mount. There are some pretty dark sections of road. Williamsburg does not use a lot of street lights. When I would swivel my head to point the light at the trees there were almost always eyes looking back at me. Mostly deer I think/ hope.


Merry Christmas. Hope everyone has a good one.

My wife had the bright idea to have the boy wake us with music when he and the girl were awake and ready to open presents. At approximately 6:20am, we were jarred awake by a raucous rendition of "Deck the Halls" on an out of tune piano. Fantastic idea, dear.
