Thoms Bread it's just so good!

I've succeeded in pushing a local cyclist down the Italian bicycle rabbit hole. As a token of thanks for finding a sick deal on a pre-owned Infinito frame set, I received a warm loaf of Rosemary bread from local Lancaster bakery, Thoms Bread.

I set out to ride through the winter months after taking the month of December off to chill with the family and get some needed rest. Since the move to the new house, I've realized that things get a whole lot messier when riding through the occasional rain shower or riding after the rain has stopped and the roads are still wet. I'm living in a part of the county where the Amish farms are everywhere versus the western end where there was probably a quarter the amount of farms. This means when the showers come through, all that horse manure from the buggies puts a lovely film of brown on you. To combat that, I bought fenders for the bike. SKS makes a
