    Truly you have not yet lived.

    HP Laps get you somewhere.

    HP Laps get you as close to Enlightenment as possible without moving into a Buddhist Monastery.

    I'm a lawyer. Enlightenment would probably be bad for business.

    Totally agree. I've even started doing laps around HP for my run training. The heated, 24/7 bathrooms make it even better.

    Pro tip: HP bathrooms have hand dryers for emergency hand warming and glove drying.

    Cool Coldest Ride Today?

    I am in contention after today's ride in Upper Michigan: 5 Degrees. Colder with the brisk windchill, but standing temp was 5. Watch out, it is supposed to be Even Colder tomorrow!

    If by "Enlightenment" you mean that very particular feeling of "WHY???? WHY AM I STILL HERE???? WHAT'S THE POINT? OMG, I've started counting manholes out of boredom. IHTFP! Get Me Out Of Here!" then yes, I'm in agreement.

    Release your attachment to the manhole and contemplate:

    What is the sound of one man lapping?
