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

For off-the-shelf, I'd go to Sur la Tahbl and get a Zweiling Kramer. I don't think anything else in the retail channels really matches it.

The flyby replay thing only seems to run like 5 hours, then starts over. So there's no way for me to see flybys on the way home, after the five hours?

Sorry to hear it.

Nope. One ride with a long break.

She rides in the wrong area.

What’s not wrong is today’s weather. Sunny with a slight breeze, morning temps in upper 50’s warming well into the 60’s by mid-morning.

Time to ride.
