Life On Two Wheels

Along the river and toward the mountains a morning shadow shimmers across the road. The rays of the first light jet through the trees and across a figure gliding upon the road. His breath trails in short spurts, petrified as it hits the icy air. All is quiet except the slight sound of the athlete as he summons himself for yet another days work. Soon the rest of the world will bustle with life as well and the brief simplicity of cyclist and nature will disappear into the everyday struggle of life in full motion; the errands and intervals, the appointments and intersections, and the deadlines and finish lines OutPaceTheRace

Looking forward

Girona, ESP
Monday, June 25, 2007

I did route du sud and it wasn´t quite the result I´d been hoping for. In fact, it was of such a nature that had I not been ill I would have been in an absolutely desolate and worthless situation. Fortunately, with Route du sud in the books, I now have several weeks to get a handle on the illness and begin once more to build for the precurser to the tour of portugal... at the moment the name eludes me.
In Girona the temperature has continued to increase, & if history has anything to say about the future only more of the same is to come in the months that follow. Certainly Portugal will be anything but cool, I presume that it´ll be similiar to death valley in it´s most radiant moment... No doubt summer should be in full swing on July 11th in both portugal and death valley.
