Kansas was just named the state with the best roads of all states in the United States (by Reader’s Digest). If that is truly the case, then we’re all in trouble. Our roads suck.

It’s a fine line between being too busy and bored.

It’s also a fine line between riding at your limit and riding by yourself off the back.

Spring is a state of mind more than a temperature.

Note to self: Don’t ever have an occupation where it’s a good idea to wear a Kevlar vest under your clothing.

You owe it to yourself to race with Vittoria CX tubular tires on carbon wheels at least once in your life. (If you don’t race, then do a long ride with lots and lots of fast downhill corners.)

St Patrick’s Day just made it onto my top 5 of holidays. Not too much commercial stuff going on here. Drink beer, wear green and watch parades.

Riding is better therapy than contemplation, reflection, and meditation combined for a real cyclist.

A lot of people think that they are a lot more important than they really are.

Racing bicycles well in the rain takes a lot of concentration and focus. Racing bicycles well in the rain and cold takes the same, plus a ton of expensive clothing.

It makes it feel a little better when “your” team loses by thinking that there are fans for the other team that are just as happy as you feel bad.

Stonehenge was way more intimate and mystical before they fenced it.

There has never been a frame pump invented in the last 40 years that works as good as a Silca with a Campy head.

    “Riding is better therapy than contemplation, reflection, and meditation combined for a real cyclist.” Absolutely. That’s why we do it.
