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

peak fitness is fleeting...

I am in the process of interviewing for positions within my company for positions in Philladelphia on a transfer basis... Consequently I have been riding less miles with less with intensity. I realised today how fleeting top fitness is. One week you can drop the hammer for 4 hours with no weakness in sight and the next week you are gasping for breath on your weekly Sunday death march. Peak fitness comes slowly and leaves like a fickle mistress...

Cycling requires more work than the profession which provides for my schwag addiction.
