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

I didn't make it through the first ten seconds. Just boring, that's all. How did it end?

For some reason, the last minute of a six minute video was credits. Typical Hollywood narcissism. I live in Los Angeles, I'm not surprised. There must be a market for this video, it just was not me.

I've been reading about this embro stuff, what does it do?
