Addiction LXIII

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 figure I better get back to standard Roman numerals before I confuse myself even further.

Carry on.

200K. Awesome. I think my longest ride ever was 180ish K.

My club was planning for a fall festival ride today. As of last night, the weather for this morning was supposed to be wet/misty so they canceled it based on this forecast. Of course, the weather turned out to be OK today (cloudy but no rain). But since the rides were canceled I had to go for a stupid run this morning instead.

Mother Nature is a cruel mistress.

Please explain. Do you never go for a solo ride?
