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

You mean this, but this is autumn, not summer.

Sycamore Canyon. I sometimes take a break there when mountain biking in those hills. It's in Ventura County.

Speaking of which, MoAlpha you should get one of these for your fancy boating event this summer. You'd be the talk of the seas!

Here's my summertime pic, but at 6800', just to keep from dying from the heat.

New email from Ebay:
"1995 Litespeed Ultimate 59 CM is no longer available, Douglas"

I thought, "1995 Litespeed Ultimate? That sounds familiar...." Turns out Ebay was letting me know that the bike I'd bought was no longer available. This seems like a glitch.

Speaking of which, it's currently stripped back down to the frame and fork, sitting in my trunk waiting for a trip to my LBS to swap the Campy BB for the 7410 Dura Ace one. THEN I build it up again. I can hardly wait!!!!!
