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

Rocky Hill Early Morning


When it will be 90 degrees by noon you start your rides early - even in October.

And now for something completely different…. When the water was above the rims and sounded like a washing machine going through the spokes, I turned around.
