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

I like the title mash-up.

Before long, all threads will have a Pcad origin.




Too late.

You can't handle my threads. What I don't get is why the Twitter Feed thread on the 33 doesn't get this treatment or seem to have these 'technical difficulties'. Maybe when I start racing regularly again and really pissing on all the Freds here they'll leave my threads alone.

I'm doing a TT on Sunday, but realize this is considered too Fredly by the 33 Intelligensia. They can bite me. The friggin TT Skunkworks Spectacular at a local TT alone is worth the drive and the entry fee. I should bring my camera and post pics here, and then sell the technology to China.

Oh wait, all that stupid pricey bike crap is already made in China. Never mind.

And the Addict, equipped with lowly mechanical shifting, gathers dust in the bike shed.

How time flies.
