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

Shucks.

Getting the 4th win of the year would have been a crowning achievement.

I sold two bicycles this year. One for $300, one for $80.

It's the 50th Anniversary of the Fiesta Bowl! I thought I heard it was canceled, but hard to keep track of what's on and what's not.


Oregon Ducks (4–2) Pac-12
Iowa State Cyclones (8–3) Big 12

First meeting of these two teams!

I sold some here, still have a Campy crank for sale here, some on Facebook, and some on a recumbent board. Despite having stock in EBay, I’ve never sold anything there.

I sold a couple bikes this year, too. I’m cleaning house for my wife so she doesn’t get stuck with it some day. She’s making me.

You should keep closer track of what's happening with your neighbors right across the state line.

Since I can't be a manly man all of the time, I made a batch of cookies with the kids. They turned out pretty well!

Nope. I might consider driving to Florida, but unfortunately it has become the quasi-quasi-quasi north.

Certainly can’t compete with Bob Rivers when it comes to Christmas music.
