Well, there is no end to the construction and it is critical to use the best materials, and regardless of anything else, maintenance is a must. Sloth and atrophy are the pitcher and the catcher, throwing and calling for the curve ball. Be ready for the high fast ball; it could be a home run pitch. Will you be ready for it? How is your temple?

Okay, Easter ate several riders this morning, with only five showing up at Stinsons to carry the AC-Flag. There was some soft cursing at the weather man for his show-and-tell trickery, leaving us cold and with little hope of warmth coming from a sky full of cloud. No sunshine here, no blue sky, no UV. No doubt, there are happy denizen nearby in a time warp or worm hole. Our time will come, won’t it? Perhaps, we should move the start time to 3 pm?

Erratum, yesterday’s ride was 2 hrs 45.
