Do you think professional cycling is clean? How clean is clean? I don't think it's clean enough. I'm not even sure what clean enough is. I just know I have no interest in watching professional cycling right now. I'd rather get out there and ride myself. Maybe that's for the best. Perhaps instead of cutting my Saturday ride short to watch the Tour it's better if I just ride a couple of extra hours.
I've been riding my Trek 520 touring bike a lot more lately for several reasons. First I've realized I should be replacing the Campy chain on my Serotta every three months. This is an expensive proposition but the Shimano chain on my Trek is less than half the price of the Campy so if I replace them both every six months, I'm saving some money.
Also I'm still trying to break in the Brooks B17 saddle on the Trek. I'm still a bit sore at 50 miles so I reckon I have another 500 miles to go before it's properly broken in. Lastly, the Trek is a lot more work to ride than the Serotta so I get a better workout when I ride it.
