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

This place could use some rollersockmonkey.

Usually I'm the one asking him why he's running everyday, so pretty sure I'm not putting words in his mouth.

Welcome to BF! Anything you want to know about Hummie (other than his first name) we will tell you, even if we have to make it up. OK, most likely we will make it up regardless, but really, no question is off limits. There is a content filter, so we can't tell you if he likes his **** ****ed. Well, we can tell you if he likes his **** ****ed, but it may be easily confused with **** ****ing or **** *****ing, and that would make your think he was odd.

You know, I've posted enough Strava and GarminConnect links that y'all could figure it out if you really cared.

Oh the shame...
