vs. AC and the Girl
The Tour de France recently ended. Lance and the boys cycled over 3500k in three weeks. AC and the girl have managed about 2500k in a year (but we have long winters here, don't forget — yeah sure). Lance and the boys average, average mind you, about 41k/h. AC and the girl average about 20.5k/h on a good day. I haven't even topped-out at 41k/h yet. I went as fast as I could today, on flat ground and with a tail wind. I managed to get up to 40k/h. At that speed, I felt unsafe and vulnerable. And after hitting 40k/h — very briefly mind you — I was nigh unto ready to pass out. I have no idea how Lance and the boys do it, and I stand in stupefied and thunderstruck awe. Mighty warriors they.
