Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Annual "I am glad another year has elapsed and you are still cancer free" bump.

Glad things are still clean and the needles are in the green for you Botto.

Another year in the books, looking for your annual update and bump of this thread was my New Year's countdown (I lead a pretty boring life here,) glad that you are still riding and doing these updates for us to be thankful for.

I'm coming up on on my 7 year anniversary of being rid of testicular cancer. I wish I was as luck as you, by the time I went to a doctor it had already spread to lymph nodes and my lungs. Luckily, 7 years and 5 surgeries later (I got to se Lance's doctor!), all is well and the cycling bug has bitten me hard than ever this winter. But seriously guys, if something seems even just slightly amiss, go see a doctor; better safe than sorry.

I will say that only having one 'dude' does make for an interesting experience in the saddle.

And I still wear my livestrong bracelet every day, and have done so for the last 7 years, even for my wedding.
