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

Training for a tour across Ohio, in May. But then once I started riding every day, I got addicted. Humidity has finally let go, so I can go out any time I want.

Convicted of trolling in the first degree. Guilty as charged. And that's all I have to say about that.

Why don’t you remove it daily with a q-tip before it gets impacted? Some folks advise against it on safety grounds, but I don’t believe it.

We use one in Houston operated by a med center hospital. Very effective on weekends None of our docs have any office hours on weekends. The better urgent care clinics are highly regarded. And with the Methodist Hospital one we use all the records go right into our digital files.

I'm 2 hours south of Rockford and in the 1-2" light blue. In fact, that's exactly what my forecast is. I had put a lot of my stuff in a storage rental before we moved and I went there this morning and picked up my snow shovel along with a couple box fans for indoor training which by the way, I managed to forestall for another day. Only rode 19.2 miles in 32ºF temps but it beats the trainer any day.

Nice. Hope you have good weather. Weather can be a little schizoid in the Midwest in May which I know you know. Sounds like fun, though.

Nope. I was banned form Q-tips way back. It just pushes it back towards the ear drum. Ask any doc.

This would be a Unity Point (Methodist) facility but the few times that I went, the waiting room was full of kids with sniffles and other scary symptoms.
