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

The spawn with his Stevens Super Prestige and my Cannondale Topstone 1. Second pic is the side of a dam, so the water was behind me.

Yup, I'll be there. Had a blast there last year. Not too many people riding on the roads for some reason though.

I'll never know firsthand what makes those trailers 'nap-machines', but my experience with my own kids was similar.
