April 6, 2009 by · 30 Comments 

As some of you may know, I’m really into cycling. I think it is partially due to the tech that is inherent in the sport, but also because of the freedom you get at self-powered speeds. In order to track my progress in not only improving my fitness, but also in my distance from point […]
