Addiction 2023.1

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

That's not good. I'm guessing this is something that develops rapidly?

My broker had become bow-legged over the years. No idea why he had become that way, but he had both knees replaced and had to buy all new pants.

No lawn watering here. We do have rain barrels for watering the herb garden though.

Ritchey started clicking/ tapping today while pedaling. Only seemed to do it 140 watts and above with a cadence of 80 or above.

Really pissed me off. I kept stopping and checking everything. I canít figure it out. Nothing is loose, went over the whole bike with a torque wrench.

The only thing it bike be, is my left leg rubbing against the rear brake cable cause the cable to hit the top tube. I held the cable and could still hear the noise, and the sound, didnít sound like it came from there.

Valve replacement for endocarditis is pretty grim. I learned far too much neurology from that scenario, but that was back in the dark ages when they were probably not as good at it and all the patients were IV drug abusers. He's young and, I expect, otherwise healthy and I have every hope he'll be fine.

I asked my friend and she seems to think it's a different valve. But details are sketchy.
