25 Things I Love About the Bike

So I could do yet another Fred gabs about the Tour de France for the next month series of posts. But, that’d largely consist of me sitting on my rump in front of the tee-vee for a large chunk of the prime of the year, and encouraging y’all to do the same. Which kind of strikes me as counter to the whole point of Run, Run, Run, Run, Run, Cycle, Cycle, Too.

Which is not to say that I didn’t get my watchin’ in today – we had biscuits to start the day watching the pre-race hype, and bookended it with pizza. AND, I was not disappointed – I (and the boys, but I don’t think the baby had any clue why) was up off the couch cheering when Lance passed Jan – what a potential bookend to one of the great rivalries of sport. And it’s not to say that I’m not going to be doing my bloggin’ from the couch watching after the boys are in bed. But I’m most looking forward to going through the stack of videotapes this winter.

So the aim here for the next month is to give y’all 25 things that really, really get me jazzed about cycling. They’re in no particular order, and I’m kind of flying by the seat of my pants in coming up with them (I am open to suggestions if there’s either something that really fires you up, or if there’s a question that’s been nagging at the back of someone’s mind.) But, much like when I joined the Navy, this seems like a good idea at the time.

  1. Huzzah! And away we go!

    I only hope that the race ends up being interesting. Close races are usually more exciting and interesting than ones where your favorite wins in a landslide, which just might be what happens this year.

  2. smsmh and i were off the couch, shouting and screaming as lance rode past jan…at 7:45 in the morning with the windows open. we didn’t care, it was EXCITING!
