Addiction 2021.4

Notices
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

SMH.
Mixing up the medicine?

During college, I was working in the Loop in Chicago and took the bus. I got to work and opened up my backpack to get my stuff and Socrates jumped up and bit me. That was scary. Like an Ice Cube movie.

No argument, it’s important to properly identify a rattus critter when you see one.

OK, add stop signs if you want to get more specific.

Nice ride with the boys last night. Windy af though. Made it tough to stay in the line at times. Beat the rain this time too.
Unless we get an indian summer, that's probably going to do it for the season.
let the Zwifting commence!

That’s gonna be a long winter. You guys don’t ride in the cold? My gang rides outside unless roads are icy/snowy.
