You Shall All Covet The New Addiction

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

The problem with being brain damaged, is you can't tell if you are brain damaged.

I hope that you're feeling left out of both the skiing and brain damage conversations.

well count yourself lucky. I'm also feeling left out of the current conversation. I don't ski or snowboard. I don't have brain damage.
