Summertime is here, and the bikes are out. Tomorrow is Bike To Work Day in our home base of Boulder, and everyone’s already hankering for the July 5 start of the Tour de France. While it’s great to see everyone taking their two-wheelers everywhere, let’s be careful: Don’t pull a Frank Schleck, who careened off his bike, over a railing, and into a ravine during the Tour de Suisse this week:
Miraculously, after taking a moment to compose himself, Schleck continued basically unharmed. We’ll credit that to his incredible physical stamina and a heaping serving of luck.
