Addiction 2023.1

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

Just did a Geoguessr in Velo Vol stomping grounds. It was near Maryville but I guessed Chatanooga.

You've got a keen eye to be able to distinguish Maryville flora from Phoenix's. LOL

For you youngsters, people used to wash cloth diapers. Not us, we had a diaper service so they washed them for us. Some people did wash diapers, though.

I miss it, too, especially after I converted it to Campagnolo Record 11 speed. It rode like a dream and was fairly light at 19#. But alas, my wife wanted me to clean out bikes and parts to a more manageable level.
