When you spend your formative years chasing down the elusive cat 1 road license, you keep those small tokens of pain tucked away safely at Grandma's house. Olive uncovered these jems recently digging through the rubble of yesteryear.

still looking for the right occasion to celebrate with it
I've never even heard of most of these disciplines before...OT?

That must mean the ambient air temperature in the shop is bearable again! I've already reached out to Rob Parson's to join me on the first mountain boogie as long as he dusts off his white and red lugged LH with simplex retro friction and Cinelli saddle. Thank you for coming out of retirement Tim.

Mama Wuleur turned 40 and made one simple request; hike from Sarratoga Gap to Waddell Beach 30.5 miles . She gave us plenty of time to prep (1 week), so I felt good with my twenty minuet "walk" session I did to prepare for our 10 hour journey. Her crew was made up of family, school buddies, yoga peeps, and bad-ass moms from TPCS.

We confirmed the nutrition content in a packet of peanut M&M's is the same as your garden variety "healthy" sports nutrition bar. Greg LeMond has been right all these years claiming you might as well eat candy considering what's inside those "special" bars. We've been experimenting with dates and almonds, apples with cinnamon, baked sweet potatoes with salt and smoked salmon.

Olive and I fell over laughing on our way to Orchard Supply Hardware when we spied the latest poster offering the "New! Polar Pizza" from Baskin Robbins. Their gimmick is "hand me a slice". Since this is a family blog, I can't even mention the ingredients or how many grams of sugar are in this weapon of mass destruction. We are considering reporting them to the Hague for crimes against humanity . It might as well be sponsored by Toujeo® Insuline.
Every now and again I have to visit my favorite south county general store to see what goodies are hiding among the shelves. Today I snagged the largest pear I've ever seen and a packet of Hits cookies for AC as little reminder of southern Italy.
the flare is always on the inside

however, we should all be scared shitless of the "New! Donut Ice Cream Sandwiches" with 171 grams of sugar from BR. I can smell the ketons from here.

Spokesman Bicycles is truly an insurance policy worth having. Please note the brass washers on the spoke heads. I know it's psychosomatic but I always feeling more confident and silky when pedaling a set of his artwork / handiwork. Thank you Harry for building my wheels since 1991. I find it funny that the rims have been getting heavier every year since the late 80's. Remember the GL 280's & 330's?
