Moving back into the familiar pattern that makes the chilly wake ups early and quiet. Press pot because it's quieter than the the machine, catching up on the tour news, looking for a little excitement before 6 am. Listen to the 2nd half of summer and know that it's too short, that fall is coming too fast and the days are never long enough. An eclipse daily, shortening the distance between breakfast and dinner, struggling to get it all in. Then, it's lost, the enjoyment of summer and the TV brings the pictures from France that just create another want, to see how steep the climbs are, to look at the Alpine roads and picture another rider on them, finally get to ride-cloudy mid summer, while it's still here.
