Why Worry

Ten years burning down the road
Nowhere to run ain't got nowhere to go

(Bruce Springsteen - Born In The USA)

The things they do, the things they say
But baby I'll wipe away those bitter tears
I'll chase away those restless fears
That turn your blue skies into grey 

(Dire Straits - Why Worry)

Kingman, Arizona. A little more than one year ago.

Germany's World Cup squad claimed third place against a tough team from Uruguay in a match that was a lot of fun to watch.  Now I'm hoping the Dutch side will win against Spain in the final tomorrow.

Earlier today, I watched coverage of the seventh stage of the Tour de France and I must admit that Chavanel was stunning to watch... what a great ride that was! 

I had earlier come back from a difficult bike ride myself, climbing the slopes in and around Lüneburg. The motorists behave aggressively towards cyclists over here and I still find it difficult to clip into my new pedals (just got them yesterday). In addition, the chain makes a strange noise when changing gears although the shift levers seem to be working fine. Any clue what might be the reason for this? I'm not technically savvy...

Have a nice weekend.

you do have a thing for vintage American signs :) I haven't watched a game of the cup since the last game with England vs. Germany. Kinda lost interest lol.

Motorists do the same thing here but we honestly never have cyclists running around lol. People are lazier here :P Plus theres always such huuuuge distances to go between places. At least where I live.

Paul says that there might be something rubbing up against the gears? And maybe the crank set might need adjusting/tightning up. Might just need a good bit of greasing up too... just food for thought though ^_^ I'm not much of a techy either haha.

Thanks... gonna have a look into it.

And yes, I love those old signs... back in the day, designers put so much passion into what they were doing, you can really see it... all the light bulbs and everything.
