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 saw Rodney at McNichols Arena many years ago. So quick, and you only caught about every second one liner. It was awesome.

If you guys don't stop, I'm going to have to go to the garage and weigh my Propel and my wife's Amira which despite having heavier wheels weighs slightly less than mine, IIRC.

Sight unseen, they’re both lighter than my R3.

I don't think that I mentioned it, but the boy went back to in-person school this week.

Having spent the last year at home, it's been weird. His little sister really misses his presence and needs more of my attention. The boy himself doesn't seem to be affected much by the return, one way or another. I think that he enjoys seeing the other kids, but at the same time there's still the physical distance. Stuff like recess must be weird. One other weird thing is that the boy is the only kid on the bus in the morning - last year, there would be 20 or 30. I think that there are supposed to be other kids/stops, but none has showed thus far, so he's had his own personal bus to start the day. In the afternoons, there are other kids, but I think that it's still less than 10.

Oh, and we also got word that my daughter's pre-school will be starting back up in the fall and that they'll be offering full days (they only did half days, previously). I don't know if we're going to do the full days, she'd actually be in school longer each day than her big brother, if we did, but the prospect of both kids being out of the house during the day is... well, hell - I'd have to figure out what to do with myself.

His Propel is aero so it might be a coin toss.

It's just such a weird mentality for a group of adults to adopt, and I say that living in a local culture that has, for generations, had passive-aggressiveness baked in to its very being.

I don't think my Propel is all that light. The bike and the scale are both in the garage, so I'll be back in a minute.

17.1# and my wife's Amira is 16.8#
