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

agree

too much Curry and not enough muscle under the glass for the Kings (at times Sabonis was basically a zero in that category)

Lakers - Warriors matchup will have the vintage look

Toppin was 4-11 from 3 for the Knicks - the rest of the team was something like 3-23 from 3 ... tough to win with that putrid shooting performance

it was windy as *(&#$)( out there today. a steady, punishing 20+mph with gusts up to 35. made for some fun jamming on the downwind legs though, and a hair raising bridge crossing with the whistling of the new railings as loud as i've ever heard it. loud enough to hurt the ears, actually.




lots of PRs despite very lackluster power levels. i blame the cocktails and wine last night.

I'm not a fan of dirt floors, if that's what you're saying.

The sousaphone isn't an elitist instrument. The French horn is.

Actually if you go back before 1900, depending on who you talked to, the trumpet might have been viewed as elitist. The cornet was the working class instrument.

Turns out schools and government offices all closed but for businesses it’s variable. The closest big supermarket is closed but the second closest is open. Businesses that rely on tourism seem mostly open.

I went out early for a ride out to Calvia and back. There is an amazing climb called Coll De Sa Creu which Strava says is 3.6 miles at 5.3%, it goes alongside land that is undeveloped (owned by the military), the road surface is excellent and there are virtually no cars on the road, I counted ONE car and probably about 40 cyclists on my out/back on this road.

It is. Real May Day was too pinko for the US Congress (or whoever it was) sanction, so we have the odd one in September.
