Not sure how many of you follow the blog over at Competitive Cyclist; if you don’t, you should start.

Today among the various bits of goodness there’s a link to an article the New York Times did recently on the Rouge Roubaix, a 100-mile unpaved slog through some fine Louisiana back country. Note the people in the back of the photo walking their bikes.

It’s a great article on an event that we all must try one day. Now I have yet another reason to get down to the Bayou.

About Whit

My experiences might easily fit many cycling fans' definitions of “living the dream.” Since getting hooked on the sport watching Lance Armstrong win the 1993 U.S. Pro Championship, I've raced as an amateur on Belgian cobbles, traveled Europe to help build a European pro team, and piloted that team from Malaysia to Mont Ventoux. As a former assistant director sportif with Mercury-Viatel, I've also seen the less dreamy side of the sport – the side rife with broken contracts, infighting, and positive dope tests. These days, I live with my lovely wife in Pennsylvania and share my experiences and views on the sport at Bicycling Magazine, the Embrocation Cycling Journal, and at my own site, Pavé.
