Slippery and cold when wet

5 04 2008

Cycling lessons learned during a very rainy Ronde van Vlaanderen:

  • There is no such thing a bad weather…only poor clothing.
  • Climbing wet cobblestoned hills is technically mystifying.
  • Descending wet cobblestoned hills is borderline suicidal.
  • Breakfast burritos do a body good. Shrimp risotto too.
  • Launching snot rockets is mandatory in-group behavior.
