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

Not necessarily politics and not religion.

Look at them laying 500m long sections of rail. 500 metres!

Technology/innovation.

And the seal looked okay when you changed the battery?

The corrosion certainly isn't helping. I'd try cleaning the contacts (brass brush [or anything mildly abrasive that can get in there] and a wipe-down) and then get a new one if that doesn't help.

Forgot that the country's Commander in Chief is supposed to downtown, not far from my office, in about 1 hr. Saw close to a dozen members of the mounted police enjoying pizza before saddling up. Could get interesting. So glad I live in the opposite direction and don't have to drive home.

One of the idiosyncrasies was the slippery floor. No matter as it was so small inside that you couldn’t fall down. I kid you not. That was just the beginning.

No one seems to value this solution to the problem, but WTF, I’ll pitch it anyway. Wrist and forearm sensors beat the crap out of chest strap sensors. The Wahoo is my new favorite. Works great with various trainer software.

I haven't seen any yet this season. I usually find a few on the boat, but maybe the spiders are keeping them away.

We've got 'em in droves here. Apparently Sept/Oct is when they come out of the woods to seek shelter for Winter, so they converge on/in houses. I've killed 30 or so out on my deck in the past couple of days

No one did the @Velo Vol challenge the other day.

ID the songs in this medley. Some of them are so old even @2manybikes will recognize them.
