So Here's Something I Learned Today...
Today I learned that if you go on a morning walk out on the highway near Silver City, New Mexico during Tour Of The Gila
weekend, you might catch the Sunday morning road race. If you catch the Sunday morning road race, you might be impressed with the way the cops close down the intersection, and with the motorcycles out in front, and with the camera/support trucks on either side of the huge, bustling mass of riders as they swoop down a far away hill, getting closer. And if you're impressed you might watch closely and see one rider veer into parallel procession in the right hand turn lane that runs the course of the highway, the lane where people turn into banks and shopping malls, the lane nearest to you. And if you're curious about this rider, you might watch him closely as the processional is just about where you are. And if you're wearing your contacts, you might at the moment the processional barrels past see this rider's penis and the stream of urine he's making.
And if it's windy enough, just windy enough, you might feel a few drops on your face and shirt from said rider.
So while I go back to bed for the next 173 days, please enjoy these drawings by the great cartoonist of bicycling, Jean-Jacques Sempé.
