Episode 30: Monastic Murmurings

On outdoors:
  • Cyclocosm? Cosmo Catalano, bike racing personality. I'll say the best out there. 
  • June is the time to come off the high of the Giro, race the Dauphiné & Suisse tune-ups in preparation for Le Tour. In the meantime, watch the World Cup in Rio on ESPN. Go USofA.
  • Riding is non-existent at the moment. Only machete bush-whacking in the woods. A tubeless conversion for the mountain bike is a little more complicated cloistered in a monastery. Anyone want to lend me a mountain bike?
