Addiction LXXX

Road Cycling ďIt 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.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

Exactly. Same goes on in my house.

Below freezing. Good thing I wasn't planning on riding this morning.

Might get in a little something later, but it'll be family stuff celebrating 17 years of my wife putting up with me.

My front light is acting up. 20 mins in the ride it indicates itís about to die, 30 mins later it goes out. I click the power button it came back on and indicated fully charged.

Bought a head lamp to work on the yard after dark. I wore that this morning as well, and liked the improved visibility.

If I buy 4 or 5 bananas, they may all be gone the next morning. If I buy 8 or 9, I may need to toss 4 of them (or make banana bread if I'm feeling ambitious) a week later.

Having the radar and Cycliq makes this easier on me - more incentive to have lights for every ride and keep 'em charged. Now I just need to get a couple extra mounts for the gravel bike for anticipated winter duty.

Walking a little easier this morning, still using the adjustable cane that Mrs John had. Ribs are hurting more in the back,, maybe I just slept wrong. Sleeping and getting out of bed have been challenging. I'm not in pain just sitting around.
Thanks for asking!

Heh. Yeah, if my gravel were like that, the R3 would be fine. Most of my stuff is waaaaaay more loose and chunky, though.

We donít really have a ton of gravel, itís mostly just dirt. While Iím interested in a gravel bike, I feel like I would have to try really hard to find places to ride it.

One banana per day. It's pretty simple. Unless you're buying spoiled ones that no one wants to eat?

speaking of gravel bikes the Alliance Gravel bike looks sweet!


Gravel bike is something I want but donít want to spend actual money on. I donít feel like I would use it as much as my road bike, and gravel bikes are expensive. I would rather buy another road bike that gives me wider tire clearance. With the exception of the Ritchey outback, but that would be checking off two boxes.

Navarino is a regular at the Cazenovia farmer's market. Or primary source for seasonal fruits and berries (not apples though). They also have a bakery. I had one of their mini pies for breakfast today.

Critz Farms is located just outside the village of Cazenovia. Many of my riding routes pass by the farm. They have an agri-tourism component. They are one of the places the City Folk take their kids for pumpkin picking and corn mazes. The also make hard cider and run a brewery. They grow their own barley and hops.

I used to live near Abbott farm. We frequented their farm stand.

I buy a bunch and they are either too green and all become perfect the same day or I get one perfect one the day i bring them home and the rest are over-ripe.

Don't you dare question my banana selection.

Kids are very streaky. We go through the same thing with granola bars, unless you suspect that I'm choosing granola bars that aren't within their ripeness window.

I'd ride my gravel bike more if there were more gravel that I didn't have to drive to. 15-20 miles on pavement to get to gravel and then another 15-20 miles back home on pavement just isn't terribly appealing.

Your bike seems like it's halfway there. You can surely fit 32s, right? Can you do a 35?
