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

Carlisle is too small. Lancaster is about the practical minimum, I think.

My older brother went to Dickinson for a year. He was pre-law, aiming to become an FBI agent. He was inspired by JFK and "Ask not..", I think. That was 1963. By the end of the 1960s, liberal Democrats like us saw the FBI rather differently.

The night wasn’t frigid and the day was warm, including the morning. I had good energy and all of my joints worked flawlessly

Yeah I got my 3.0" tyres WAY aired down for snow. Prolly 7PSI f, 8r. Good in snow and other soft stuff but on pavement you don't even get to choose your own path
