Addiction 2022.1

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

It's 6, but the good news is: It feels like 11 (Real Money F not C)

Six is a touchdown without the extra point. It's rare it feels like 11 though.

Would be a great day for a cycling activity. Sadly the Tennessee Valley has become a wind tunnel, again.

Mojo31 Once I'm finished with the color coats and moving to clear coat, do I want those to all melt together too. Color melted to clear?

I will admit to deciding to just go with what I've got, but what the hay?. It's already torn down. I'm seriously thinking of painting it, this time, in the work stand. A big part of my problem is trying to do it hanging from that wire. I could smear the stand with Vaseline to protect it from the paint.

It is unlikely that I will ride today. Too hot(Year without Winter). I am undecided whether or not to keep track of my mileage this year; likely not. I ride because I enjoy it; not to prove.anything. I'm effectively 70 years old. What have I got to prove? I do plan to do more off road this year though.

Same walk as last week, I forgot to turn on the Garmin at the start. 3.5 miles 3.3 mph average which was up a tick from last week. Very warm today. At least I was able to do it with only moderate pain in my left foot.

Ugly! We don’t get that front for 24 hrs and there might be a weather window for riding tomorrow.

Wait about 30. minutes after color to apply clear. Apply clear coats about 10 minutes apart.

Masking tape the stand. Much easier to remove the tape.
