Get your Grand Tour on

My interest in pro cycling bottomed out last summer, but Get Your Grand Tour On has completely revived it. Inspired by David Rees's brilliant Get Your War On -- brace yourself for sarcasm and obscenity.

Speaking of cycling: last weekend I took my vintage 1987 Hardrock on a trail for the first time in 15 years. The 40 pound frame and classic 80's geometry (slightly downsloping top tube) make pulling heavy trailer loads a joy. In the background is the 10th Mountain Division Hut Association's newest hut, just west of Tennessee Pass (3117 meters).
