I am still of this world. Back from a significant amount of business travel to unmentionable places (including Vienna, this time around... but that was nice... but too much beer and weiner schnitzel...).
So this week I have gotten my rather fat a$# out for three rides. Coming from several months of no riding and continued eating, it has been painful and humiliating. Kids on tricycles now pass me on speed bumps. My lycra riding clothes are uncomfortably tight. But let's not go there.
It is good to be back in the blogosphere! It is good to be riding again. I have some good posts coming up, so stay posted. Equipment reviews and of course, my usual pithy commentary on the pro cycling peloton.
Oh, and congratulations to Ivan Basso, winner of this year's very exciting Giro d'Italia, honored by Cadel Evans (riding solo, as usual, can't the guy get a functioning team?), Arroyo and the Credit boys, minus our friend Valverde (good riddance).
Camp spots, the memorable ones
