Omerta (A-Z Day 15)
I finished reading The Secret Race by Tyler Hamilton and Daniel Coyle. It’s an intriguing, engulfing book. I think every cyclist should read it, here are few reasons why:
Narrow (A-Z Day 14)
A-Z Day 14 Narrow Singletrack is wide? No. Not at all. It’s not wide. One-track is narrow.
Mountains (A-Z Day 13)
A-z Day 13 Mountains When in doubt, look up. Go up. To the mountains. “Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.” wrote John Muir. Robert McFarlane said “Mountains seem to answer an increasing imaginative need in the West. More and more people are discovering a desire for them, and a powerful solace in them.” […]
Linkless (A-Z Day 12)

Kilojoules (A-Z Day 11)
I’ve spent the better part of 2012 trying to understand how to train effectively with a power meter. In school, I was never any good in math, physics, or anything else remotely scientific*.

Jens (A-Z Day 10)
It’s another Friday Haiku!
Iamatology (A-Z Day 9)
Cycling isn’t ugly. Cycling is going to save the world.
Hagiography (A-Z Day 8)
All the good Armstrong has done has been facilitated and funded by his 7 Tour victories. All the money he has earned as a celebrity-spokesman and high-dollar speaker originated in Paris. Every yellow wristband sold, and every dollar donated to Livestrong is French.
Gratitude (A-Z Day 7)
Embrace the ordinary, and turn it into the extraordinary. Ride your bike. Explore. Ascend. And be grateful.
