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

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

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 (42) Pac-12
Iowa State Cyclones (83) 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.

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.
