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

Im talking about making a bike I have better.

Our band director was out Tuesday due to Covid.

I don't know if I've had it or not. The only time I tested was when the hospital required.

Yep. That seems to be the way the new strain works. Sleep a lot and take care.

You have to keep it dry for a few days after application, but otherwise there is no issue. The coating actually makes it easier to wash.

Ive been using this after washes - https://avalonking.com/products/armor-shield-lite. Works pretty well, and its easy on/easy off.

Full ceramic coating is not worth the cost to me.

Fortunately, these days there’s usually someone younger and/or more competent.
