Cycle of Violence: Al Gore’s Wrong
Today’s ride: 41.52 miles, in the brilliant sunshine and plentiful ultra-violet rays. With lots and lots of people, coming out of hibernation and getting those skates and bikes out of the garage for the first time in six months. Based on my numerous close calls with oblivious walking dead iPod listeners today, doing sudden pirhouettes without a care in the world, I think Al Gore’s wrong. We’re not experiencing global warming. We’re in the midst of a massive, irreversible cycle of global dumbing. But once I escaped the hordes, there could not have a been a better day for cycling, so I did a 4 mile training climb that I’ve been avoiding and felt great, concentrating on keeping the cadence in the 90-100 zone as much as possible (dropping down to 60-70 where the grade hit 15%+).
