New Bike Day!

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

I ride with older, slower people so I can put a whoopin on them. If they showed up with an ebike and tried to give me the business - I would no longer ride with them.

As I told my wife long ago, we are never going to own a hobby business. If I'm going to work, it's going to be for the money, honey!
