SHUT UP LEGS!
Gino Bartali in the 1937 Giro … on snowy roads!
This is me, pretty much every day this winter. Okay, maybe not the goggles.

Now with grammeur correçionne. Who cares.
Gino Bartali goes along in the Casse Deserte section of the Col d’Izoard on his way to a stage win in 1938. The picture comes from Ellis Bacon’s book Mapping Le Tour.

Paul de Vivie (1853 - 1930), nom de plume Vélocio, devised a code for the wise cyclist:
1. Keep your stops short and few.
2. Eat before you’re hungry, drink before you’re thirsty.
3. Never get too tired to eat or sleep.
4. Add a layer before you’re cold, take one off before you’re hot.
5. Lay off wine, meat and tobacco on tour.
6. Ride within yourself, especially in the first hour.
7. Never show off.
Legs, please be silent. (Photo: Yuzuru Sunada) | Visit pelotonmagazine.com and subscribe to the award-winning print magazine devoted to the beauty of road cycling. #bikes #cycling #fuelfortheride #TDU by pelotonmagazine http://ift.tt/1jx7m9F
