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

So i just got into see his new replacement and she looks about 20yoa. We hit it off as she is a cyclocross racer so hopefully she sticks around.

They are doing 80-90 km/day. They are fully loaded también.
Edit: I tried to move one of the bikes this morning and I couldn’t pick up the back end.

This is why I tend to avoid movies. I saw one recently, can’t remember anything about it except that it was not terrible formulaic.

Somewhere at home I have a small piece of anthracite coal that fell off a railcar. It is still lined up in NE Pennsylvania. I believe most of it is railed down to Baltimore, where it is taken by ship up to Canada for use in industry.

She seems like a nice young lady right now, but I wonder how long it’s going to take before that kind of fame starts to beat her up. Take a look back at how many music superstars never made it to middle age, much less old age.

Let’s face it, Dylan is a weirdo and shouldn’t be used as a measuring rod for normal music stars.

Please tell me that comparison is not being made. Please. She's no Niel Diamond either.
