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 would come over there and kill you but I can't afford the airfare. Plus I'd have to beat you to death with a CF micro pump.

I'm insane enough to actually ride through that crap. But it's been too long... I just want to be able to go out there in jersey and shorts again.

It's been the same here in Dallas, TX 5 days of sunshine and warm weather. Looks like Saturday we have a slight chance of rain but still pretty warm!

I got snowed on 4hrs south of Chicago in Bloomington, IN (Breaking Away) on Sunday. That, and the sand on the roads from the winter's anti-snow campaign made for some interesting ~50mph descents.

Come back home, and three days in a row of 50*F or warmer. WTF.

I took the M/C to work today. Do you know how uncomfortably warm all that gear would've been if it was 80 and sunny?
