Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

May the year of the Rabbit be a safe one.

Got out for a 80km this am. Love today the roads are near deserted.

Ride safe, wherever you are.

The only other language I know besides Gong Hay Fat Choy is Saehae Bok Mani Badu Saeyo! I'm not Korean, but I watch too much Korean drama and I have to listen and cater to my daughter who is into K-Pop music.

Anyway, nice bike! Quite honestly, I didn't know of BMC until that trip to Hearst Castle last year. From Monterey to Hearst Castle on Hwy 1, the majority of the riders I saw are on BMC - at least 80%!

Another morning of near deserted roads. 100 something km listening to the breeze.

Yes, Happy Lunar New Year to all who celebrate it.

Happy New Year All! It's pretty short and sweet here this year (6 days).

I did some 'training' with my 4-year old (3km) under beautiful blue skies and temps in the high 20's C. Then a light 50km recovery for myself (with only 400m elevation gain!). Another recovery day today and a training camp that starts with a 20min power test tomorrow. I hope the weather holds.

Managed an 80km ride yesterday on CNY day (was hoping for 100, but the 250+ group of riders broke up and I lost my way, only finding a slow group doing the shorter ride to follow).

Fireworks are about to happen here in Hong Kong.

Happy fluffy year of the Rabbit to you all!

My wife's parents called from Korea to wish us a Happy New Year last night, too.
