    As with all great dilemmas in life, I am turning once again to the wisdom of this messageboard.

    Hypothetical dilemma: you'll be in the area for all three Ardennes Classics this year, but you can select only one to spectate in person. Which do you choose (and where)?

    The one with the most attractive participants.

    Personally I would do the Flèche Wallonne. It is one I have always wanted to see. And it has had some great winners. But perhaps Liege-Bastogne-Liege would be better if you can be at the Bastogne end as you could spend some time around where the 101st airborne was surrounded in the Battle of the Bulge and see the "nuts" museum, if it's still there. You can go wrong with either of them.

    P.S. Nice to see you posting here again

    One of my online anti-scientology buddies (they refer to themselves as "scientology watchers," and the Church refers to them as "embittered bigoted apostates") is in the French Alps this morning for Megavalanche.

    I'm dying right now... The cycling tour company that provided our Civil War Tour a while back is now offering a bike tour of Cuba to repeat customers. But for my recent accident, we would absolutely do this. I suspect the roads and accommodations won't be as nice as other tours, but what a great opportunity. I'd insist on swinging by the Bay of Pigs and the 1962 Russian missile sites. I really wish I could do this. But I'm curious if this only appeals to me. I suspect many (most?) might not find this attractive at all.

    For the most part this looks like a great tour. I think I might develop some travelers ailment during the planned lecture on Cuba's health Care system at the school for disabled children (at least if it really a lecture), but otherwise a lot of fun.
