Happy Birthday, Machka!!

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

Happy Birthday, Machka!!

Happy Birthday, Machka!!

I don't come here very much but I know she does.

Just wanted to wish you a wonderful day.

It's above 32 degree today where Machka lives. She's probably out riding.

Happy Birthday! I'd say go ride your years in miles (or kilometers), but you probably did that last night in your sleep.

Cheers!

That would be the distance of one of the brevets I have coming up during the "Eau de Hell" week on Vancouver Island at the beginning of April ..... can I wait to do it then?
