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

Don't think it was. We were staying in town during an organized tour got a shuttle out to his parents' (Ludwig and Christina) homestead. They were among many "Germans from Russia" who came to the U.S. Many settled in a discrete area of ND. As corny as it may sound, it's actually a neat place.

Welk Homestead State Historic Site - State Historical Society of North Dakota (nd.gov)

The town of Wishek is known for its German-style sausage. The night we stayed there the entertainment was a polka band. Locals came from miles around to listen. That's considered high entertainment in rural ND.

It's too bad KCB can't perform there, we might get an actual audience.

I just got tubular at 68.5. I still haven't gone clipless. Except spd, briefly, in the mid nineties. During my spandex phase.

I've never tried tubulars. I entered my spandex phase in about 1986 and I'm still in it. Clipless since about 1988.

I did another testing of the waters ride. It was painful. Highly doubt I'll ride tomorrow. Just got done with my stretching.

I rode with bibs and looked down while riding and was shocked how skinny my legs are. No massive guads if you aren't using them.
