some of us don’t have cable.[/quote:54kflkaq]
just offering another option 😄 honestly you may not have to have cable to watch it there, I wasn’t really paying that much attention, just clicked away and logged in and it was good to go.
This is one way to watch the men’s race in its entirety. You just have to select your home cable service and login to your online account to be able to watch. Worked for me with AT&T U-Verse.
All other cycling, including the women’s mountain bike are listed here: [url:ht4jn552]http://www.nbcolympics.com/video/browse/index.html?menu3#sx=sports&cx=cycling&fx=fullEventsReplays&ox=recent&vx=grid&px=1[/url:ht4jn552]
What I found to be the strangest (yet coolest) part of the men’s race was the Italian, Marco Fontana, who still took third. . . even after his seatpost snapped off mid way through the bell lap! What shoddy seatpost was that??? I also found it disappointing that Absalon, as an Olympic rider, wouldn’t continue after a flat to finish the race. I call weaksauce.
Both were interesting races, props to Gould for pulling off third for the US.
Well its not that close to FdL at all, but LaGrange Country store/Backyard Bikes rents several Trek/Gary Fisher Cobias near Whitewater and the awesome John Muir/Emma Carlin trail system. I did the trip in August and they made it easy. I flew with my shoes & helmet, they will even set up the bike with your pedals of choice. They’ll include a helmet if you didn’t bring one, and they include a seatpack with all tire repair essentials you might need. And the store has an awesome deli, all the energy supplements you’ll need, and a sweet selection of Wisconsin brews. Make a day of it, you won’t be disappointed.

I may be heading down your way soon, SA or Austin, not sure yet. If I make it lets get together and find some trails. There are a few posted on ST, have you rode those?
Very cool. As I understand, Austin is definitely much more well-equipped. Seems like there’s several options for trails & ranches up that way. I have checked out almost all the SA rides listed here, even added some that I’ve explored (Leon Creek) and will be adding some pics and more review later this weekend. I’m always game for a ride, I actually started getting a few folks from work together a couple nights a week, so we can all tear up some trails.
San Antonio just isn’t that safe for commuting, I think somebody said something about "150% on the defensive. . ." you can say that again. Yesterday I commuted for the first time, I drove my bike to a trailhead somewhat close to my residence and rode in the 15 miles to work from there. 10 miles of paved multi-use and 5 miles of road. Nice to be riding when it was cooler out on the way in. The way back wasn’t as comfortable but still, no issues. Good stuff, thinking about doing it once a week.
I’m from the Milwaukee area, rode Alpha Mtn, Milwaukee River Trails and John Muir once in a great while.
