Dope and Win
If you’re going to tell a lie, tell a “Big Lie” was the advice of one of history’s biggest villains and it was a lesson that the disgraced cycling superstar Lance Armstrong doubtless learned early. That is the conclusion down by Juliet Marcur in her account of Armstrong’s implosion in her book, Cycle of Lies: The Fall of Lance Armstrong (HarperCollins, 480 pages, $29.99). And the portrait she paints of the cyclist who won seven Tours de France (with the help of performance-enhancing drugs!) is not pretty. In this book, Lance is portrayed as a world-class liar.

Protein supplements and sports drinks will be heavily hyped in TV commercials during the Olympic Games, but Oxford researchers have found little evidence of beneficial results.
Many cyclists are unaware that when they are riding their bikes, they are covered by their auto insurance for injuries that might occur as the result of an accident with another vehicle. Your auto insurance can extend coverage to you as a cyclist, and you are also eligible to receive benefits from the insurance company of a motorist that is involved in the accident with you. Cyclists can receive medical payments, pain and suffering benefits, and more if they file a claim with the auto insurance company.
