It was a busy week. I covered a few miles on my road bike each day, did more writing than I wanted to, parented where necessary and went hands-off where possible. The kid had a good time, and so did his cousins. Time to head back.
Given another week, I might have gotten halfway decent at dealing with the 97-degree heat and the remarkably humid air, which resembled nothing so much as a wet sock. The best I could do for a rolling average was 16.7mph. On the positive side, I managed to thoroughly test some great USA-made cycling apparel. More on that later, let’s roll tape on this week’s publications.
Brother Bark provided the remaining TTAC readers some insight into how advertisers track prospective shoppers across the Internet. I took a look at the growing prestige gap across American automakers.
At R&T, I revisited a supercar experience, took a light-hearted look at trackday showboating, and offered you a look at an exciting new shop from respected restoration expert and vintage-sprint-car racer Josh Shaw.
For Watch Journal, I told a few stories about vintage guitars and one of my favorite watchmakers, IWC.
This week I’ll have a couple of interesting reviews up, covering the spectrum from work trucks to bespoke GT4 race cars. Come back early and often!
