For some reason I was thinking a lot about Laurent Fignon today. You know when something just keeps invading your brain?

"The light nights on leaving work herald a new season for cyclists. You can almost hear our legs twitching to get the miles in under the warmth of the sun."

I love this image, by The Handmade Cyclist. You can see it here on Etsy. http://www.etsy.com/listing/87491639/a-classification-of-cyclists-of-note
I think there is something about us cyclists that loves classifications, trying to find where we may fit (or more likely not) in the world. This image sums it up perfectly.

People are often unreasonable, illogical and self centered ; Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives ; Be kind anyway. If you are succesful,you will win some false friends and some true enemies; Succeed anyway. If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; Be honest and frank anyway. What you spend years building, someone may destroy overnight ; Build anyway. If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous ; Be happy anyway. The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough; Give the world the best you’ve got anyway. You see, in the final analysis, it is all between you and God; It was never between you and them anyway. Mother Theresa. I’m not religious but these words struck me deeply.
