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

Too bad Pcad isn't around to see the Mets doing this well. I'm sure he'd be predicting they'll choke at some point every time he mentioned them though.

Out here, I'd say it's a toss-up between March and April. The temps are moderate, the rains are tapering off or have finished, and everything is green. June is too windy.
