Last big ride here in the Pyrenees before jetting off back home and then onto Corsica. And by jetting I mean driving. A car. Back to Girona. Tomorrow.
Hot diggity, it was a beauty of a day here today. You see, while nearly every European pro is stressfully racing their national championships this weekend, I was blessed with a block of time to train at the place of my choosing, at the pace of my choosing. So today was exquisite in the bike riding department and similarly this entire week has been just what I needed. It was a perfect, head clearing chunk of time to prepare for Le Tour. Or The Tour as I say since I don’t speak French. Holy moly I’m psyched! Oooookay, down to business. Here’s a photo from today:
And now let’s jump to the category of random news of late:
–I enjoyed this article and am loving the corresponding website. It’s like my own personal coffee shop ambiance right here with me to go along with my hot water maker and AeroPress. Dang, I’m so hip. Listening to it now, which is why this entry is so creative.
–I also saw a cow on my ride today. I swear he was looking at me and we were totally engaged in conversation just seconds earlier. But then I got my camera out and he immediately became camera shy. I wonder if he’s going to tell his buds that he’s now on the internet.
–Oh, naturally if you haven’t done so already, you’re going to want to spend about two minutes and twenty-four dollars here for the following reasons: 1) King of Style approved. It’s exceedingly stylish, bordering on dangerously stylish. Prepare to fend of t-shirt fans with a blunt object. 2) It’s made of extremely soft and absurdly comfortable fabric. 3) Profits go to the Krempels Center. Look, you’re winning x 3! If all life decisions were this gratifying, we would call this planet Eden.
–Speaking of our friends at the amazing KC, check out this video which serves as your friendly reminder to sign up for the Krempels King of the Road Challenge!
–And lastly I think you should scope out these fine folks and their take on life. We live in a world with a lot of pre-set standards. Breaking the mold is often the fast track to an exciting life.
