Addiction 2021.3

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 was driving my old Blazer on the freeway and something hit the windshield hard enough to cause a cloud of broken glass particles to hit me. The hole got larger until it would whistle at freeway speed. It was big enough to pass a pencil through it and I put duct tape over it to keep it quiet. After years of this a cop pulled me over and told me to get a new windshield.
Of course, about 3 months after I got the new glass another object broke it on the same freeway. This time there was no hole.

I was driving a customer's truck and a bolt flew off the back of a truck and destroyed the windshield. The guy had a banner across the top and some other crap, he was not amused.

Just remembered, when I bought my 65 Chevy truck there was a big crack in the windshield. I drove it for 19 years and never fixed it.
It’s not a star. Looks like a bubble 1cm with 1cm cracks on opposite sides of it. I expect they will apply epoxy filler which I hope prevents the crack from spreading.

Maybe on the west coast. My employer gave us Friday and Monday off.

They have that repair stuff figured out pretty well.

Dozens in the Cities. MN is the land of 10,000 Lakes and Minneapolis is the City of Lakes, so you know we've got some lakes.

Looks like they added "41" to the subforum name. I could be wrong, but I think that the URL was just "bf.com/41" BITD.

Not for me. We only get a make up day if the holiday falls on a Sunday. Last year the 4th fell on a Saturday. We got neither the 3rd nor the 6th off.

Putting it back in the URL probably won't fix that though.

Kudos

I haven't even broken 1k yet.

Relative to last year, I'm at 30% of total mileage. At 50% of total elevation though
