This CL listing litterally gave me the chills.

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

This CL listing litterally gave me the chills.

I don't know much about bikes but this looks like someone paid like four hundred dollars for it

don't leave your bike outside goodwill, some "well intentioned citizen"/thief will take/steal it.
