Pro-ness | Rouleur | Journal

rouleur.cc — We've all got a story like this. I'm out with our usual Tuesday training group doing laps of the park. It's just after 6am, and only just light, but it's springtime in New York City and the park loop is amply filled with local club and recreational riders all doing their morning thing.

Can baking improve mental health?

theguardian.com — They say baking soothes the soul. How can it not? There is something so reassuring about the ritual - quietly weighing out butter, sugar, flour, cracking eggs, whisking, beating and folding. "If you're feeling a little bit down, a bit of kneading helps," Mary Berry once said.

Substance | Rouleur | Journal

rouleur.cc — It was just one line buried in the tenth paragraph of a very minor story, but for me, it suddenly changed everything. The headline was that the Orica GreenEdge rider from South Africa, Daryl Impey, could return to racing because the UCI had waived its right to appeal against the earlier decision of the South African Institute for Drug Free Sport (SAID) to permit the cyclist to return to competition.

Tips on how to cycle in snow

theguardian.com — Snow, for many, is already here. And after I'm done writing this, I'm going to put the knobbliest tyres I have on my bike for this morning's commute. I've got used to riding with a big crowd of cyclists on my way to and from work, but I suspect that as it has snowed overnight in London, the rank and file of two-wheeled commuters will be thinned out substantially.

Own up, cyclists. Do you ever 'catch the bus'?

theguardian.com — OK, disclaimer time: let me first make a "I make no apologies for this"-kind of apology. This blog is very much in the category of confession to a guilty secret. I'm not recommending this behaviour; I'm not saying it's clever or cool. But it is fun, and I'm definitely not the only one who thinks so.

Being Handy - Medium

medium.com — In other respects, the jury is still out, but in this I am certain I have failed utterly as a parent: I have not transmitted to my children, now young adults, any of what I consider for myself to be the practical essentials for living.

Should Lance Armstrong be banned from Strava?

theguardian.com — Lance Armstrong is never out of the news for long, lately. Now, in the wake of his semi-confession to Oprah Winfrey, ABC News is reporting that a high-level official says that Armstrong is still under investigation by federal agents for possible obstruction, witness tampering and intimidation.

Top six cycling team jerseys NOT to wear

theguardian.com — I was out early riding around the park this morning, and of course, it's summer still, so you see other cyclists training. Most are wearing either their own cycling or triathlon club jerseys, or plain, no-name "unattached" jerseys. But you'll always see some folk in team replica kit.

Reflections of a British emigre on American Independence Day

theguardian.com — For US citizens, 4 July - Independence Day - is unambiguously an anniversary to cheer and celebrate. As the founder John Adams wrote to his wife Abigail, the day that Congress approved the Declaration of Independence "ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more."

Reading "thusly," am reminded of E.B. White's dictum: "Do not dress words up by adding -ly to them, as though putting a hat on a horse."

@MartinBelam totally agree; it's not a measure of relative virtue/vice, simply $$$

I'll say this for the UCI's ancien regime: They look very small-time compared to FIFA.
