Addiction 2021.4

Notices
Road Cycling ďIt 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.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

Area fatbikers are clearly not praying hard enough.

I can’t see any of VV’s posts. They’re all just blank except for the signature.

What happened?

Supposedly it's fixin' to rain later. So my ride was very windy, but the worst of it wasn't that it was windy. It was that the wind was unpredictable. It would switch from a headwind to a tailwind within 50 straight, unsheltered yards, and it would switch, seemingly at random, from relatively calm to a 'blow your wheels out from under you' crosswind. Since I couldn't predict it, I couldn't prepare for it, only react to it. So I ended up doing a lot of reacting.

I took a road I'd always wondered about - a 'no outlet' road that turns off of Sand Hill in Portola Valley. Goes about half a mile, dead ends at a gate marked "Private Property". I've ridden past it for 25 years, and wondered. Now I know.

Pffft - it was rigged from the start. Of those frequently on the podium this (non-winter) time of year, I think that I'm the only one in the West. Maybe Bah Humbug , too, but I think that he's already shut it down (relatively speaking) for the season.
