… and take the lane

You gotta fight!  For your right!  To … cyyyyyyycle! When cycling on a busy road it is tempting to ride right up to the curb, and in reality, other vehicles might try to force you over there.  But on a busy road you are well within your rights to cycle in the middle of the lane so you can see the road.  This doesn’t need to be done all the time, but where there are many parked cars, or a blind right turn ahead, it’s usually a safer position for you to be riding in.

What I love

What I love about cycling, in order: 1. Everything.

The ride

Some do the ride even though they can’t do the ride, and eventually they can do the ride.  Some never do the ride, and can never do the ride.

Did Contador Win?

On 2015-02-25 Google news picked up this story from Cycling Weekly that Contador would win the TdF.  I sure hope this didn’t happen as he’s my least favorite rider, going back to the Andy Schleck chain incident a few years back.

Why does it matter?

…it matters because it matters.

Riding Schedule

Better riding schedule: As much as you want when you can, or as much as you can when you want?
