BORED: Picked up on Twitter…

OK, I am not even going to wait for NYE… I promise I will resist TIBS croissants the next few months and dust off my Trek and put it back on it’s winter trainer, to get back to my ‘climbing weight’ under 155lbs.

Unlike Sufjan Stevens, who seems to have bogged down after two states, Rapha Continental has now covered 50 states across the US.  After watching the slide show of the last installment of Lincoln NE, the amazing photos make me want to take off a year of work to ride across this beautiful country.  Also, makes me want to get more serious about photography.  Perhaps I can start in California in April:
