You Shall All Covet The New Addiction

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

I wish I could have done that race. Oh well. Hoping to be able to mix it up again in 2012 when my USA Cycling Racing Age will be 55. Either way I will rock those TT's.

Not really, he got it for $3200 brand new, plus I think he talked them down $100. That's really a great deal the framesets alone are $2800.

Hey, if you didn't like going uphill you really couldn't ride around here. Trust me on this.

I'll have a new more slender physique soon. Or I'll be dead. Either way, something to emulate.

That car has been getting a surprising amount of attention and admiration, people like it. I like it. Lexus likes it (they're selling twice as many as they projected, it's a big sales hit for them). Hey, it's a Lexus version of the Mazda 5-door (arguably one of the coolest cars ever) that adds Lexus luxury/class and 40 mpg, all for $32k, which is a tick over Toyota/Honda pricing, and that lets lower budget idiots like me into the Lexus camp.

It's a peach, we're in Gaw-gia.
A buddy of mine did it and he is definitely used to hills. He did great in the swim and said he may have went too hard on the bike. The last 6 1/2 miles of the run took him about two hours. He blamed it partially on the weather but mostly I think it was mostly the bike that blew him up.

He is doing a full ironman length event next month, hopefully he learned a few things this weekend.

Anyway, great job Jen.
