Move along, nothing to see here

Barring breaking news, there won’t be a new post here today. I’ll be guest editing LA Streetsblog this morning instead, so come on over for the latest transportation news, including a few bike links.

Meanwhile, I’ll try to catch upon the bike news and events later tonight or over weekend as my schedule allows.

But before you go, click on this link.

And read the story of BMC rider Taylor Phinney’s last place finish in a race this past Monday, if you haven’t already. And even if you have no interest in bike racing.

Because it’s really not about that.

It’s about the biggest heart in the peloton. And a son’s love for his father, and for bicycling.

And it will make you forget all about that other guy from Texas, at least for awhile.

    We can draw strength from a lot of things even though it would be easier to quit when things aren’t going your way. An incredibly difficult day on the road can never match what his father goes thru on a daily basis & to ride it out for him was honorable & nothing short of inspirational. Nice read.

  2. JD says:

    Finish well and you will inspire others. To quote the apostle Paul, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. Now there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that day; and not to me only, but also unto all those who have longed for his appearing.” Thank you for the inspirational story.
