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

In other news, the awesome shovel is safely stored in an undisclosed location in the northwest metro Atlanta area. It was not put into service this winter.
Long live the awesome shovel!

Is it acceptable to make yourself a cocktail-hour mojito if you had a lunchtime margarita?

I say: yes.

I’m actually a little nervous. I really hope my knees and ankle can handle riding.

I dod did get the new shifter installed on my SL1 and got the Garmin 520 plus setup. So that’s something I reckon.
