Saturday Reminders—8/12/17

After a solid ten days in France, I am back home to sweltering Houston. Yesterday, the Heat Index was hovering around 105°. I meant to go for a ride on Friday, but FedEx essentially ruined the whole day (if you don’t get out on the bike by 9:00, you risk certain death). But since it is a “special” weekend, I decided to ignore the extra six pounds I am packing and vow to get out on a ride early Saturday, in memory of Laurent Fignon, one of my favorite cyclists, born on this day in 1960 (and sadly died of cancer in 2010).

Not much else to report here from the Bayou City, other than a few announcements that are slightly outside of the norm….


  • If you have not yet liked my Facebook page, what are you waiting for? A personal invite? A lengthy motorcade? An engraved invitation? Go HERE and like it!
  • Are you following me yet on Twitter? If not, why not? Go HERE and rectify the situation!
  • And what about Instagram? I know, I know, I don’t really get Instagram either, but since you are in the “following” kind of vein already, just go HERE.
  • Last one. Just click HERE.
  • Sorry for all the directives, but I technically just got a year older today and I am feeling a bit cranky.


Have a Happy Saturday!


About the drunken cyclist

I have been an occasional cycling tour guide in Europe for the past 20 years, visiting most of the wine regions of France. Through this "job" I developed a love for wine and the stories that often accompany the pulling of a cork. I live in Houston with my lovely wife and two wonderful sons.

    Sorry, I don’t do Facebook, Trumper (oops — I mean Twitter), or Instagram, so how about three Smiley Faces instead? 🙂 🙂 🙂

  5. Happy Birthday and I am sure that no one will notice the six extra pounds, just another reminder that your body is maturing. Have a couple of good wines for the day.

    Happy Belated, Jeff. And remember: a good bottle of champagne weighs more than six pounds. 🙂
