Addiction 2024.1

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

For my Dad's memorial service, we kids chose a piece that, to all of us means "Dad".

He put this on every Sunday morning, as far back as I could remember.

75 mile club ride today, my longest in a while. Felt pretty good after the first 25 miles.

You know, they make sweat guards, and they work pretty well. Unless you're just using the bike as a drying rack for towels, in which case, nevermind.

One of my favorite Cannondales is for sale cheap but unfortunately it's been destroyed by trainer time

Paint on the underside of the toptube absolutely wrecked:

As an aside, I really don't get people using steel bikes on trainers. It's like the worst possible pairing.

Also, I guess if you keep a bike on the trainer it really doesn't at all matter what bartape you put on there

Kilogram is an appropriate unit to measure LesterOfPuppets 's mass.

I needed that many towels to wipe all the sweat off me.

Yeah, might try one sometime, but I would still need most of the towels.

replaced mine with Conti Extreme Contact DWS at about the same price. Ouch! Thinking of going with ATTURO AZ850. Much better price and people love them. Now back to bikes. Check out the Rennlist Macan forum.
