      Looking forward to the ESPN series on Lance Armstrong that starts tonight.

      He fooled a lotta people. Including me. :(
      He was not unique in his use of performance enhancing drugs in the cycling world but he took the brunt of media scrutiny because he so vehemently denied it. His mistake was not admitting his wrong doing and taking his punishment.
      Lost in the right direction.

    • ebike update: I'm loving it! Went to Pocohontas State Park Saturday and met up with my hiking buddy Slingshot. Pocohontas has over 70 miles of forest roads and MTB trails. I rode about 25 miles, mostly on the forest roads, and probably never stopped smiling. It was fun passing people uphill on the forest roads and seeing the "what the heck was that?" look.

      It sounds like you had a good time, and that's what counts. I hope you get a lot of enjoyment out of your new bike. I have a feeling that your not so old mountain bike is going to be collecting a lot of dust.
