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

finally feeling human again, I had a fever until 11:00 last night.

The sign was made by a contractor and has been covered up until "repairs" can be made.

For a long time there was an official road sign along a popular bike ride our club used to do that read "Bridge Out. Loacl Traffic Only". It may even still be there. Even funnier is that the bridge was repaired a long time ago. My guess is that the local people wanted the sign to remain to steer through traffic off a quiet road.

My ride was fake too. And the feared snowfall was a dud, so I could have ridden outside. I could'a been a contender. I could've been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am, let's face it.
