MOUNTAIN RETREAT. So, I've been a literal TV and Internet blackout for the past two days. Only by cell phone have I kept track of the Tour progreess. I'm at a camp in the West Virginia mountains and Wi-Fi hotspots are miles away. So, tracking and comment may be patchy this week.

KICKING TRAILS, STEEP ROADS. On the other hand, I'm getting in some great rides, both on my road bike and mountain bike. The trails around here are awesome. They kick me, humble me. The road biking is dangerous. Roads are narrow, windy and steep. Treacherous, really. But it is the most challenging terrian I've ever attempted. No complaints ever again about the climbs in the Hilly Hundred.
