Got home late from work last night and only was able to get in a 20 mile ride. This morning after uploading to Garmin Connect, I find that I rode 299.65 miles for June.
If I knew that last night, I would have at least gotten an extra mile in. Oh well, still not bad considering one week was spent in Aurba.

Rode to work in the rain today -- apparently 5 dry days in a row is too much.

My wife is in mourning, anticipating the loss of her use of the living room TV for the next three weeks.

Wait until my wife discovers that I erased all her "Lifetime Movies" that she DVR'd. I had to erase the recorded shows from the unit in the game room, and a several from the box in the family room, in order to tape the entire race and Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest.

I have been as well.
Sort of cool to see them without helmets to be honest.
I am not a huge Lance fan but watching him pull away like he did on Alp d'huez in 2001 was crazy good.
Yeah I agree this should be a good one this year.

Lance best Alberto in Prologue by 5 sec. The gauntlet has been thrown. I'll be in Paris on the 25th.

He looked good...hope he can remain injury free this TDF...I'd really like to see him finish with his head held high.
