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

Not a great time, but maybe. It's definitely going to be at 4ish?

Yes, people cheer for the athletes from their countries. Yes, many of them cheer against athletes from the top competitor nations (was Russia, now China?). Is that not human nature?

What's going on now pales in comparison to what goes on in the fall in the southeastern US (TN, GA, FL, AL, et.al).

And soon to be Southwest!

It'll be interesting to see how UT, who is used to getting its way, will behave when it is ranked 7, 8 or 9 in the SEC. It's going to have to spend a lot of money to achieve greatness among that group.

yes, 4ish. We can make it brief if you need to. I'm going to need to stop to get some relief from sitting. It will be 8 hours of driving time to k'ville. You name the place that works best for you.

This will make lots of $$$$ (duh), but frankly the old SWC schools don't belong in the SEC. Even Arkansas. Different cultures, and way too distant.

The conferences have sold their souls for TV.

I think this pretty much dooms any chances you might qualify for any State Dept. job.

I had a cherry Entenmann's with a blue Powerade at the ride break this morning. Also drank 3 bottles of water in 43 miles. It was hot and windy and the e-bike guy turned his power to position "2".

Until today I never heard of grape pie let alone a hand pie. To summarize: TIL about hand pie, grape pie and grape hand pie.
Mind blown.

I just got back from my evening quasi-run.

Oh yes.
