One of the best things about writing this blog is that I answer to nobody but myself. So recently I asked myself if I could take a much-needed summer vacation, and I was delighted when the answer came back "Yes!" I can be unpredictable, though, so I also figured I'd better pack up and split quickly before I changed my mind. As such, I'll be gone through next week, and will return on Monday, July 14th with regular updates.
This should give me ample time to add a few more Tour de France stage wins to my palmares before the race heads into the mountains and I abandon Cipollini-style as I have in years past. (Suffering is so undignified.)
In my absense, please enjoy our nation's birthday, the first week of the Tour, and whatever else happens to be going on. As always, thanks everybody for reading, and ride safe. I'll see you again on the 14th.
