Addiction LXXX

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

This is a proper road, for which road bicycles are made. Pretty simple.

Looks like street signs would be cheaper than painting the names on the roads.

It's not called "Proper" Road Cycling. Therefore dirt road cycling counts as road cycling.

I used to do that in OR and WA a bit. Some even had slightly narrower lanes.

Feared for my life on several occasions

Sadly this one has noticeably more traffic than it did a few years ago. You can see on the left side of that Google image where a subdivision was being added.

Starting tomorrow, we will begin ABR's very own, first annual Chubby Cubby Chonk Down, where YOU vote for which cubby you think is the c******st this fall. Bears in the wild, and at ABR are experiencing hyperphagia - a period of excessive eating that takes place in the fall to prepare them for their denning period in the wintertime. During hyperphagia, bears ignore all of the usual biological signs that tell them when they are full, and just keep eating. Bears in hyperphagia can consume up to 20,000 calories per day and can gain up to 30 lbs per week! We are here to celebrate those c***** bodies that do so much for the bears of the world - thank you fat reserves!! Please participate by voting everyday during the week of October 5th. We will be posting voting polls onto our Facebook page daily for the next five days. There will be multiple matchups and the bear with the most votes will advance forward. We will reveal the winner on Friday, October 9th. Since we can't determine true weights of our cubs until their release times, the winner will be chosen solely by the most votes for who YOU believe to be most c*****. Feel free to play along using the attached bracket below. 🐻 Good luck, and may only the c******st win. •
