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

I split my kits between charlotte and my house. I thought I didn’t have enough before the split, Now I definitely realize I don’t have enough……..

Perhaps the alternative is she leaves space for, and then dings, your car.

Mine too, but she often carries a passenger, i.e., my offspring. Thus, the attribution of liability for door dings can be ceaselessly debated.

We also have enough space where the doors cannot make contact.

Mrs. GeneJockey and I grew up in PA - well, just barely across the border in far Western NY for her, really. In any case, the Mid-Atlantic states are probably where we'll end up.
ahhhhh

I lived there in the 70s. It was a nice town then. I realize .....
There's a fellow over in C&V who lives there. 3alarmer.
It's a beautiful area for riding.
