Every ride is not created equal. Some stand far above the others - rides that will forever live on in memory and tales. Today was one of those special ones. I had the chance to do something I never thought I’d do: ride 9 hours, 215k (135mi), and climb 5100m (17000ft). I know it’s not that crazy, but for me, it broke down a lot of walls, showed me a new horizon of possibilities, and most of all, it was fun. At its most basic, I got to ride with a good friend through the Dolomites, talking, laughing, sharing in the unique pain of a ride that was insane, for all intents and purposes, beyond us. It was a privilege today, Steve. Thanks for getting me out there, thanks for challenging me, and thanks for the day. I will never forget it.

If the moon were only 1 pixel on your screen, how big would the rest of the solar system be?
Just click this link, I beg you, and prepare to have your mind blown.
Absolutely amazing. Fantastic work by designer Josh Worth.

And for lots more fun ways to look at the scale of the universe maybe watch this one called (naturally) "The Scale of the Universe":
Designers, inventors, filmmakers, partners - Charles and Ray Eames enjoy a rare occasion: Sunday morning together in their home near Santa Monica. The couple built the house, “a pleasant place for living and working,” in 1949. Charles died in 1978 after living more than half his 71 years in California. He once said, “Just being by an ocean is comforting.”
