Addiction 2021.1

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

I have tried for years to get her to go talk to someone about it but she won’t. I’m hoping the cycling will help her like it has helped me with my own issues.
Can't hurt and I hope it helps.

A "snack" can be almost anything.

I think this meet the definition of 'raining on and off for the next week':

End of next week is forecast to be partly cloudy and 20°F so maybe I can sneak out after work, especially since sunset is getting late enough to start riding outside again. I haven't ridden outside since January 16, save for the 6 minutes on the 1st of the month before I got a flat

What's your threshold for "particularly cold"?

My wife and I have both been riding the same route* on our trainer and if it's a flat course, I can take her but if you put a few steep hills in or a long grade, she crushes me. It's obvious that I'm too fat for this sport.

*we choose a route from the FulGaz library but generally ride the same one on a given day

Allow me to rephrase: I almost never snack at home. And certainly not after dinner. I eat meals and pretty much leave it at that.

I was about 10 years ago. I could have spent all day there, but kids got bored after about 2 hours.

Depends on whether entry is based on talent or popularity. They sometimes align and sometimes don’t.

I rode by it crossing the country back in '99. It was relatively early in the morning. I didn't want to stick around until it opened.
