Addiction 2024.2

Notices
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

My previous two sightings were SB I-17 by Sunset Point and NB 35th between Greenway and Bell in Phoenix.

Exactly. With a (really)bad sore throat.
Have a fun, relaxing trip.
My second to last bout I tested because of the sore throat; the last one I didn’t bother and didn’t realize it was probably COVID until after the fact.

Oh and this weather is coming for you too. Just give it a little time. The southern border is going to become very difficult to seal. I would be talking the wife out of Dallas, personally.

It's unsafe to drive when you are drowsy.

55 F is a weird temp. 60? Just go short sleeves. 50 F? Gotta cover the knees and maybe the fingers. 55? No clue. I guess it depends on other weather conditions and how quickly it will warm up.
