It is about time for a Random Page of the Day installment… and do I mean random!
I love me Specialized Toupe saddle. It is a little scratched up and not so pretty anymore, but it is like a comfortable old friend. I’m afraid to ever switch to another saddle for fear of the uncomfortable consequences.
Guess I’m not a Real Man. If I were, I would want the Saddle for REAL MEN! Somehow I think my relationship with such a saddle would be a little rocky.
Of course, this piece of humor comes from the ruminations of the late Sheldon Brown. He always had a way to make sure cyclists didn’t take themselves too seriously. Thanks to the Internet, his gifts to the bicycling world continue on.
On to other things… Upstate rider for Columbia-Highroad, Craig Lewis, is racing this week in the Tour of Romandie. Yesterday was a time trial. Craig finished 12 seconds behind his leader and teammate Frantisek Rabon.
I didn’t get out to Donaldson Center last night. I heard it was a pretty tough one. Would have liked to have been out there, but I have to remember to keep my priorities straight. I love riding my bike, but there are more important things in life… I’m thinking primarily of the beautiful redhead and the Things Three.
