Addiction L3

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

Safely arrived in Bergenfield NJ for Thanksgiving, phase 1. I got in a quick run this morning so I can eat more.

Happy Birthday and Happy Thanksgiving!

I slept in 'til 9 this morning and it was glorious. Now it's time to plot out a mtb course and get my butt to the trailhead.

Been sick as a dog, thankfully feeling way better this am so we'll make the family Thanksgiving after all.

Too sick to make anything, so I'm brining Pumpkin Pie Truffles. With a few Apple Caramel Scotchmallows thrown in for good measure.

Have a great holiday y'all! I'm jealous of all the bike riding I'm imagining you'll be doing.

Was the hard effort at the dining room table, or was it on the bike?

Went for a 1/4 mile walk on the crusty streets to grab some coffee and pastries. Rode around for about 5 miles. Now watching MST3K Turkey Day Marathon.

Just polished off a phenomenal lunch prepared by my sister-in-law. And yes, there was pecan pie. It didn't suck.

My favorite dog is this pic is the black one looking back at the musher. Because this is exactly the look I'd get from my dog if I ever asked her to do anything useful.

That and the demand for a fresh sweater.

As well, my birthday fell on this holiday this year, so there may be a surprise cake.

which area of the valley?

Thank you much for the birthday greetings, folks.

The hike was exhilarating, now bathing in the endorphins, waiting for the next game.

@BSY I'm in Tempe, off I-10 and Elliot.
