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

I believe that's a Bontrager "Satellite" fork. Thought it was a Wound Up for a bit.

Matches the wheels, at least.

We're both feeling mostly normal thankfully. Still need to get boosted whenever it's recommended post infection.

Yeah the Poprad disc models came like that. Those Bontrager saddles are the WORST, at least according to my ass they are. I'm not a fan of those bars either.

Maybe I should wait for an orange Poprad to show up though. I haven't had an orange bike in quite some time.

we were only supposed to get .5 inches of snow. Forecast, roads would have been clear by now.

Sigh, we got 5 inches. Looking like the trainer.

What you're missing is goof made on your screen shot. How is it a forecast if they are reporting actual temperatures? To use your phrase, eff that noise.

Something longer and slower. I am still recovering from a set of squats I did on Wednesday.

I’ll do TDZ #4 later in the week and try to push it.

Since I began sleeping in a hammock full time, sleeping in abed ****s with my back and hips. On this trip I'm sleeping in a bed for ten days straight. Yesterday I had to go to the chiropractor after my new trick knee collapsed for the second time in a few days. One of the women whose house we were in thought I had fainted and in he panic she knelt ony glasses, destroying them.. I'm walking with a cane and now I can't see.
So please forgive any typos.
