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

WhyFi I'm curious - would you ride across the frozen lakes without studs if there was some snow cover?

Same here. We are not expected to see a high above 20° until at least 2/18 and nothing above 30° until maybe the 20th.

Eating is gross/a tax on the system, and drinking on the bike is a nuisance. Simplify.

You can adapt your body to not eat itself alive, and instead, survive on the fat stores. As far as the bike, it's a lot of long rides without calories. Of course, the nonsense Velo Vol preaches about not drinking, is just that. But, I've done 80-100 miles rides on water, and it's entirely doable. That also includes not eating pre-ride, other than coffee. There are limits, you know, and coffee is not up for discussion.
