    Shame, Charlie just sold a BRAND new Thule for peanuts. Wish I would have know you were looking!

    Trip to NoVa you say :D I see Denise must be there on an extended stay based on her rides.

    Yeah. I’d have been interested. They aren’t cheap. I got it on discount luckily.

    She is up there to help her dad who they are trying to get from a nursing home back to the house. I’ll be up there for 4 or 5 days. Plan on getting some rides in.

    Yep. Same here. Heat and humidity came this week - probably to stat till September. Might as well get used to it.

    It's been so hot here I actually have a hard time riding, and I'm usually fine riding in the sweltering heat. But then today it's not even 70 degrees - weird.

    I'd take that today and a day without wind would be nice to for a change.

    Just bought some Vee Rubber 26x1.5 tires, Bontrager tubes, Velox rim tape and 4 V-brake pads.

    Amazon driver crushed my VTX trike by throwing a box containing a table on top of it. In my driveway...on camera.

    In addition to the temp drops we had 20 MPH winds with higher gusts, been super-windy here too.

    So Amazon uses "ARC" for insurance.

    I bought a 2nd one to tide me over...I sold that one (the good one) this Saturday to a really nice guy because my neck cannot tolerate it post op.

    So, resurrecting the 2002 Trek 4300 to try to drop weight.

    Not that good, but honestly, I wonder how these adjusters have a conscience.

    Obviously you need to be able to warm your mirror up from the car on the way home from work.
