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

When I lived there, I used my inner ring less than 10 times in 2 years. Every time I did, it involved a strong headwind riding over the Key Biscayne causeway. You'll get onshore breezes of 20-30mph sometimes, that can be worse than any hill.

Not too bad today, either.
