It is like this every year. There are only a handful of sponsors, and they play the same commercials over and over again. By the end of the tour you are so sick of seeing the damned things that you...

I don't get why a fan would position himself on the inside of a curve where the view is horrible. Had he been on the outside of the curve, he could have seen more and not gotten knocked over..

You can pretty much guarantee that anybody with a long beard would never want to ride that thing.

Recumbents I get - those look like they could be comfortable on a long ride. These other things I...

Maybe you had 3 channels, but we were out in a rural area and only had only one that was in range. If it wasn't on NBC, we didn't get it. No channel surfing - if you didn't like what was on, you...

The temps hit 68 degrees yesterday, so I was out in shorts and a t-shirt. And yet the trails were still blocked with big piles of snow from the monster storm we had back in Jan. That seemed really...

I would have also said we were headed for a mild winter until about a week ago :cry:.

It hit 100 degrees F here today. All of this talk of winter seems a little premature :D.

Of course, I get home and my wife has the AC cranked up so now I need to go find a blanket.

I am dreading the studded tires. Realistically we don't need them where I am until around mid December or thereabouts - this year we didn't get any precipitation like that until January. And by...

It is. I am thinking the starting point is trying to figure out which is more accurate. For example, if the wheel magnet gets jostled and no longer registers every time the wheel goes around, then...
