Addiction 2021.4

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

Not me. Drywall mudding has taken it out of me. Maybe I'll get in 20-ish tomorrow, but there's still a little bit of skim coating left to do.

My average speed makes me look like I’m doggin’ it all week because the commutes come out at, like, 14.7 mph.

For some reason I imagined private miles still counted towards club miles, but no one could see the rides.

I hear it wasn’t built in a day.

BTW…If you get the chance, go to Venice, even if only for a day. Great place to wander around.

I tried so hard I got so far but in the end it doesn't even matter.
