Speaking of carnal thoughts, the wife of one of my ride buddies volunteered to work the Tour of California. She was assigned to be a drug control escort for a single rider, which basically means you stay by their side when they're not riding.

And by human, I mean natural... I just wonder what the chemical of the day happens to be.
