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

Look! Daria Musk (singer of "Google +1 Song") replied to my post!

Celebrities always ignore me (except for a local reporter who tweets back).

This is the coolest thing since DJones gave us a shout out on WCNY.

Is it child labor to draft behind a nine-year old?

What's shameful about that photo? Just a young Fred blowing by some poser.

I had some police officers posing with me at work and taking photos because they said I look like Casey Anthony.

I don't see it at all.

I proudly outsprinted a 13 year old for 13th place in this 4/5 crit https://www.usacycling.org/results/i...&info_id=39957 he wasn't much draft.

LAJ or sbxx...have either of you rode route 82 between leadville and aspen? or any trails in the aspen area?

Local TV news is running a top-of-the hour story on the pole dancing fitness club. Facepalm.

The reporter did a shot with one of the dancers two feet away from him.

A couple of the dancers look pretty good, but one of them is way too fat for that sport.

Did this "fitness club" have tables and serve drinks?

Not that I saw on TV.

The "news story" is that the "fitness center" is allegedly controversial in the community. Someone apparently drove a rusty nail through the telephone line. They showed it on TV.

I am not kidding.

It's probably controversial because it's exotic.
