Hi folks. It has been a while since I was last here, during which I spent a long weekend in the south of France, watching the first couple of days of the Tour de France. I intended to write about that and post some pictures, I just have not had the chance to upload the pictures yet. Once uploaded I will do a write up. In the meantime, as far as the Tour goes, excellent performances from Mark Cavandish and Bradley Wiggins! I also want to take this opportunity to wish Jens Voigt a speedy recovery. I saw his crash on the ITV coverage of the Tour yesterday, it looked horrific. Jens is a really nice guy and a thoroughly entertaining, competitive and hard rider. He is one of my favourites in the peleton.
On another note, when I started this blog, I mentioned that the Fat Cyclist blog was what spurred me on. Elden Nelson has written a tremendous blog for a number of years and I recommend it to you all. For a while now however, he has also used his blog to write about his wife Susan and her battle with cancer. To my mind, these postings have evidenced the courage of both Susan and Elden in sharing their fight with us. Since he started writing about their situatuion, Elden and his friends have raised several thousand dollars (I think into the hundreds) for Cancer charity. His most recent posts indicate that Susan is going through a really tough time right now. http://www.fatcyclist.com/
