This is why I wear a cycling cap

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

Your image code links to https://www.velonews.com/photo/74959, which is a page, not an image. I believe you meant to link to https://www.velonews.com/files/images/Leipheimer.jpg - or maybe some other image from the article.
