A Flurry of Questions & Thoughts

Why do most of the paid event rides, which collect thousands of dollars, provide such lousy snacks and no lunch?
I realize they make donations of some of this money, but these rides are getting more expensive and the riders are not really getting much back.
An unfortunate result is that many people join the ride, use the rest room and bring their own food.

Is it just me, or is the Tour de France more interesting to watch because Lance is back?
As I write this, they haven’t even reached the Alps yet.

I learned something this year, but everyone has to learn it themselves.
If you lose 5 pounds you will ride faster and stronger even if you do not buy a new bicycle.
Now that I can ride faster and stronger, I enjoy the slower (toddle) rides as much as the fast/push rides.

If you really want the secrets to cycling success, send me money.

  1. 1. I did BTC in June and the snacks at the aid stations were great.

    2. Yes, my interest wasn’t quite as great the last couple years, but the Tour is “must see tv” again.

    3. Isn’t it amazing! I actually lost 25 lbs. and feel so much stronger, especially on climbs. And the more I ride, the better I feel.
