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

The boy was blindsided by the phone (and the music library therein), but he really couldn't stop bouncing when he found out about our boys' weekend and saw the airshow tickets. Priorities.

Sailboats can, and often do go faster than the wind. Just depends on the boat and angle of attack.
