Today’s edition of the Cycling Scene blog comes to you as the George Jones memorial edition.


No-Show George passed away earlier today.


And what does the country superstar have to do with cycling, you ask.


Honestly, absolutely nothing. But Jones’ classic “He Stopped Loving Her Today” as always been one of my favorite songs, so you will just have to deal with it.


If you’re not familiar with it (and who are we kidding, I know you area), here’s a link George performing the song at The Grand Ole Orpy.


Now, back to cycling.


My Cycling Scene column returns Sunday with plenty of good stuff.


I managed to stumble upon an iPhone app that’s actually aimed at keeping you healthy and on your bike.


I also had a chance to chat with Phil Cable from Sickler’s in Exeter about upcoming cycling events.


Along with the host of weekly rides his shop holds, Phil also told me about the return of the Great 100, the Pennsylvania State Time Trial Championships and the possibility of a July 4th weekend century.


The best news of all is the weather report for the weekend. In the 60s all weekend and nothing but sun.


Unfortunately, a couple of commitments will most likely keep me off the bicycle this weekend.


But that’s OK. The weather for Monday is … of course, rain.


Oh well, enjoy the weekend and get in a couple of good rides and remember to read Cycling Scene in Sunday’s Times Leader.
