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

Saw a Rapha bus ad. Not very convincing to my wallet but was nice to see a cycling-specific ad.

The head shaking has me concerned, but it’s hard to tell if it’s cause or effect, over the internet.

Anyone else need a diagnosis while we’re working in your neighborhood?

I just notice that The Shovel is modular. Do you break it down and store it in the bench, when not in use?

Snow storm rolling in. Six to eight inches forecast, but it's the expected "wintry mix" after that I don't like.

It's going to be bad if he ever needs it again and can't find the instructions.

Montana is home to one species of pelican. The American White Pelican. Saw some pelican-looking birds there a few years ago and looked them up because I always associated pelicans with the south/gulf coast.

We have been getting a wintry mix all morning after very light snow last night. Things just turned back to sleet from rain. I can hear it hitting my office window.

The white pelican has the longest wingspan of any bird in the western hemisphere.
