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

Riding Half the Tour mileage each day

Our bike club follows the exploits of a guy who rides 50% of the Tour de France mileage each day. Then he writes about his experience. A cool idea and great reading. Check it out here;
