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

You stole the Pope's thunder.

Maybe next month for the pope.

Maybe every month we'll let someone new start 'em up . . . yeah!





But I'm changing the title, RU.
