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

Will @Velo Gator come back to taunt us if the Gators win the championship? Or has she forgotten we exist?

Called off the commute due to wind. Sucks driving in, but it beats getting shoved into a semi from a 60 mph gust, I suppose.

Only as a last resort. Now that both Michigan teams have let me down, my preferences are UConn, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Floriduh, in that order.

Glad you're feeling better.
