Cynical, witty Madone 6.5 rider with less nuts than Lance. Hardened the fuck up years ago and expect that everyone should do the same. Owner of six bikes, a fast car and a Volvo wagon adorned with PdC adornement. Lover of a dog and was once scared by a Pelican that took up residence in my pool. Like cycling a lot.
