Remember in late May when I told you someone on eBay was selling a very expensive bike that belonged to Barry Bonds? Yeah, that was the same post where I told you Bonds is becoming something of a cycling freak. Now comes word that Bonds was hanging around in Aspen recently and spending time on his bike in the mountains. How much does he weigh now? The guy in the neon green shirt is 6-5, 185. Bonds was said to be 6-2, 228 in 2007.
This is photo was taken at Independence Pass, which is at 12,095 feet and 20 miles from Aspen.
According to Colorado.com, a rider can expect to ride and elevation gain of 4,187 feet and spend 3.5 hours on the road.
Independence Pass rises to its summit at 12,095 feet. Along the road, watch aspens and evergreens dissolve into one another, and the peaks of the surrounding mountains cut jagged lines against the sky. Ride the route just before its fall closure for an ideal way to see the aspens’ colors change from green to shimmering gold and orange.
At least the guy isn’t bumming around ballparks like Roger Clemens. Barry seems to be acclimating himself into society pretty well now that people don’t actually recognize him.

Barry Bonds used to be a big hulk of an athlete. His head was as big as his biceps, and most assumed he was juicing — The picture above looks more like the Pittsburgh Pirates Barry Bonds. One fan tweeted, “My buddy met Barry bonds at 12000ft. @dmac1043 you need to go ride with him. He is so small now” Barry looks happy and healthy…wouldn’t shock...
That Barry Bonds cycling post last night brought up old memories for BC Twitter followers. See, Bonds is now looking like he did in 1991, which brought up Bobby Bonilla’s name from the crypt. That led to: “Is Bonilla still getting paid by the Mets?” Um, yes, and Bobby received check #2 this year of his 25-year run of $1,193,248.20 checks from the team for deferring his salary...

Giancarlo Stanton- Just ask Alex on which list Stanton will end up after his career. He thinks that Giancarlo is destined to break Barry Bonds single season home run record (*). I don't think so. But he is, and will continue to be a force for many years to come. The 22-year-old right fielder already has 75 round-trippers...
