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

PSA:

In these difficult financial times we must do what is necessary to maintain our standards. Therefore all users posting herein will be assessed a flat monthly usage surcharge of just $100, or $1 per post, whichever is greater.

Not to worry, we have direct billing.

Thanks for helping, I knew you would understand.

Smooches! XXX

Explosive not exploding. Should read "explosives detection dog training" but them are the signs.
