Route 29 TT report

Read it here. Nutshell version is that it took 2 hearts and 4 lungs on a bike to best my time by a few seconds, but outside of the tandem category, I pretty much stuck it. LOADS of wattage. I actually think it may have been seeping out of my pores.

If we give Dr. W. enough tax incentives and plug his crankset into the Power Grid, Northern NJ would become Energy Independent overnight.

You're pretty ridiculous, WJ. I'm in awe. How much do you weigh, if you don't mind me asking?
