Lance #1 again!!!

Notices
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

Lance #1 again!!!

Armstrong tops list of city's largest water users

"I need to fix this," Armstrong said. "To use that much more water (than most residents) is unacceptable. I have no interest in being the top water user in Austin, Texas."

But Lance...you're WINNING!!!

Nice aerial shot of his house next to the headline.

At least it wasn't an Olsen twins skeleton.

I bet Sheryl Crow queen of 1 square of toilette paper shook her head when she heard this.

They're clearly not counting the water I drink on my lunch rides.

When your bidet puts out 10 gallons a minute, you only need 1 square!

I rode past his house a couple of weeks ago. I could swear there was a lone paparazzi staking out the house, parked under a tree. There are two different gates and wondered which one was Lances'. Now I see that they're both Lances'...the Big House and the Little House (which is probably bigger than mine).

I just have to think there are more important things to report than Lance’s water bill.

Lance's property is flat. That hoser could never make it up my hill.

By the way, I've had the sprinkler system turned off here all week, just so you know. And I haven't had a pool since my kid outgrew the inflatable one we had in the back yard when she was little.

Really? Did another attractive white girl go missing?

There's no line between entertainment and news media.

How often do you think he's really at that house anyway? Probably not too often. And when he is, the article even says all the bills and crap are handled by a management company - that's very common with wealthy/busy people who can't be bothered with day-to-day stuff like that.

But yea, the usage is excessive. Maybe him and Al Gore ought to team up to do a lecture series on conservation.

I disagree...keep tapping away and you will either be discovered or gain the wisdom to start your own online forum and then make millions (n.b., I'm an ecommerce expert and professor and I approved this message).

PCad, there are some decent climbs on the neighborhood streets near his house (e.g., the short climb up Balcones about 400 yards or so past 35th), and, a bit further away, I always find Spicewood Springs (not the "Old" one) a challenge, particularly near the top...(I never found Mt Bonnell that difficult)...come on out -- I'll set you up -- and we'll clean your clock...by the way, I should be passing through Chester again sometime within the next 2 weeks or so...should have my bike in tow :-)
