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 just realized one of the greatest virtues of retirement . . . . . . you don't have to drink 7/11 or any other convenience store's crappy coffee any more. You just keep a supply of your favorite beans and you make your favorite coffee every freaking morning, right after when YOU decide you feel like getting out of bed. #HeavenOnEarth

That person needs a new front tire. Perhaps a new wheel. Looks like apart of the wheel or tire is hanging over the molding/gasket on the left side of the boot.

Or was it the Porsche driver that hit the cyclist and is now doing a solid by taking the damaged bike to wherever the cyclist is going?

Thankfully the rain finally quit and I got to ride for about an hour. Naturally Strava only recorded about 10 minutes

Full coverage fenders are such a treat when roads are wet

Supposedly this is all my GPS tracks for the year, almost tempted to fool around with styles and pay $5 for a high res file. I wonder what the one with several laps was. I don't recall racing or hitting the dirt jumps this year.

I forget who Alice Cooper was opening for but he was unknown and people were throwing things at him and he was hit by a half eaten melon so he tried to use it in his act by squeezing it while singing. He had to leave.

Im reversing out of my drive way, and water starts dumping on me. I mean it’s raining harder inside my van than it is outside.

Mojo I need you sober enough to talk strategy here. Long term plans I am thinking 911 but for now I will settle for a new van.
Two car seats. Two bikes. Every bit a Porsche.

It's an illusion caused by the split in the plastic molding.

Dang, I should have arisen sooner, the rain has begun already. Gonna have to really suit up for the burrito run!

Think I'll stay in and make pancakes instead.

65 miles in. 2 flat tires. My second spare tube has a removable valve stem, and my mini pump keeps removing it. Stranded at the moment.
