Addiction LXXVIII

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

Kudos and good luck.

How about no.

Pegu Club aka the gin drink:






The daiquiri:






The disadvantage of the daiquiri is that requires more lime juice, which will leave me lime insecure until I get me next Instacart order on Thursday.

It could be canned corn.

I did three or four hours of yard work before lunch. Figured I'd do a two or three hour ride after lunch. I changed my plan, after the first hill. Probably should have worn sunscreen.

No pre-hydration. Rookie mistake.

My emergency water was not needed today. I thought about stopping at Melton Hill Dam restrooms for a drink, but the park was "closed." Well, it was for most people, but not Velo Vol. I snuck around the gate and kept riding. I didn't bother stopping to see if the bathrooms were locked. Hydration was the least of my problems.

But then again, which of us made three kinds of ice cream this weekend?
