There is a well known “secret” among mountain lovers. During the endless, gray, depressing days this time of year – there is often plenty of sunshine if you just go high enough.
Doreen just gets better with age!
Today she ran the Geneva half marathon, shattering her time from two years ago.
Times have taken their toll on the once mighty Poseur team. You now only find them at the best coffee shops and bakeries, always riding easy and never taking the lead.
Year-to-date, I have cycled 91,377 metres (299,800 feet) of vertical ascent.
And despite way too much beer, I have lost some weight.
In May, Doreen and I spent three days cycling around Gstaad, Switzerland. Someone saw one of the photos and invited me to enter the PBS Nature – Television “Prince of the Alps” photo contest.
And the photo placed in the top 10 – sort of cool.
As May comes to an end, it’s pretty clear that achieving this year’s challenge will in fact be “challenging.”
Anyone that has ridden with me, knows that one of their duties is to photograph me in front of any interesting sign. Here’s a little collection of some signs seen along the way. And at the bottom, a slide show of “signs from the top.”
First, let me be clear, I am fine (although you’ll notice that my sunglasses weren’t as lucky). The Doctor said that it’s OK for people to now mock me.
Martin was looking a LOT sexier than usual on today’s ride. More specifically, his new Pinarello Prince is hot!
But don’t tell Janet.
