Bicycle Racing Kicks,...

While watching the Amgen Tour of California Adobe Tour Tracker today I realized all over again why I love riding bicycles. Watching the break mashing away in vain at the pedals with less than 3 miles to go, Robert Millar taking a flyer, bridging, pulling the remnants of the break to within 1000 meters of the finish, only to be swallowed by a molten river of peloton, it's just beautiful to watch. The whole thing is uplifting. Look at the twinkle in Bettini's eye up there. That's what it's all about.

Tonight's Workout: 1 hour, 5 minutes spinning on the bike, not hard, but with couple of 150+rpm bursts to up the heartrate for a bit. Knees are feeling great! Hoping tomorrow is even semi-dry so I can do a long ride out on the road.
