Ride a bike, share your experience and love. When I go biking, I repeat a mantra of the day's sensations: bright sun, blue sky, warm breeze, blue jay's call, ice melting and so on. This helps me transcend the traffic, ignore the clamorings of work, leave all the mind theaters behind and focus on nature instead. I still must abide by the rules of the road, of biking, of gravity. But I am mentally far away from civilization. The world is breaking someone else's heart. ~Diane Ackerman

Old Bike Jersey - Radar La Vie Claire

A co-worker who knows I'm a bike nut gave me this jersey. As it turns out, its a vintage Team Jersey that Greg Lemond and Bernard Hinault wore to TDF victories! The guys at RBR were nice enough to give me some back story regarding the jersey.

"La Vie Clair," or The Clear Life. Bernard Tapie started the "La Vie Clair," in the early 1980s and was the owner of Look when its was only making ski bindings. In around 1984 Look modified their first ski binding and thus created the first Look clipless pedal. Needing a team to introduce the clipless pedal into the market, Look created Radar La Vie Clair. Both LeMond and Hinault won the Tour De France wearing this jersey.
