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

Here's the latest addition to the family, in case you already grew weary of the congrats thread and didn't make it to page 3.

Congrats on the kid! There is nothing in my life I would trade for the raising kids experience, I loved it.

If you are really lucky like me, ya get one of these later on; my fist grandkid, asleep on me during my first full day of baby sitting

+1 - I enjoy being a parent a little more each day. I was one of those guys that didn't get much out of the "cute baby" phase, but now that my son is older it is priceless. I just want to bottle him up and keep him this age forever.

I did love the "sleeping on me" time I got in the baby phase though.

This does appear to be incontrovertible proof the cycling has not rendered Dr. P impotent.

Get that carbon stroller. Post a review here, and start a thread on Weight Weenies after you replace the bolts with the Ti Upgrade Kit and go to Ceramic Bearings.
