Addiction 2023.4

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

Nope. Just have a neighbour come by and check on its food, water, and litter box every day or two.

if i end up getting a transplant, iíll definitely be riding Ö A LOT. so maybe iíll be back on this thread in a few years. thanks for the hospitality and donít let bam buy too many more bikes
Good luck with all that. Sending warm thoughts, best wishes ,good vibrations and prayers. Use as much as needed.

Did a 50 mile gravel/mud road ride Saturday. Was ok, lots of climbing, good company. The Dirty Trek did ok but a few issues showed up. So I did a bit of a refit on Sunday morning. New bars to correct a reach issue. Which led to new cables and, since it's 10 speed it got my Force shifters and new bar tape. Gotta find time to test ride it now..

Has your dog transitioned to a cat, or is it just unsure of its orientation?

MOTD

I can't figure this all out, but it appears the area south of Tyre was an important port.

We paid $50/day on this last trip plus $20/day for "doggy day care" for two days. Outrageous!

We were driving to Austin for a weekend a while back, and as we were driving the kennel called my wife to tell her that the "Presidential Suite" had become available. They wanted to know if we would like to move Ella to it. Fortunately, the call came through on the car speakers, and my reaction was, "WTF? We don't even stay in the Presidential Suites!" The call ended pretty quickly.
