This is a shameless attempt to save the the most advanced civilization in
history from imminent self destruction by eliminating carbon emission,
dependence on foreign sources of fuel,obesity, hypertension and diabetes.
Cycling accomplishes all those things at once and helps us develop a better
understanding of ourselves, each other and our relationship to the cosmos.

Oh, horse puckey!
I like to ride bikes, have been doing it all my life.
The rest of that crap is just a fringe benefit,
and the blogosphere gives me a chance to share my interior
monologue with virtual rather than imaginary friends.

Habits overwhelm me sometimes

   Yesterday I had a full day in the car.  A bunch of stuff had to be done and big things carried with little time so  I had to avoid playing in the snow.   None of that prevented my cycling habits from taking control.  My son always accuses me of driving the same routes I use on my bike (it's a lie, he's trying to get in my head), but there are some habits which can't be suppressed.  For instance, near our home is a Lowes where I go on a regular basis, usually on my bike.  Yesterday I had to make a quick stop between other errands and pulled into the parking lot, and drove right over to the bike rack in front of the store before realizing I couldn't park there.


  1. That's awesome!
    When I drive these days, I often find myself following my biking ways, or, at least looking at the paths longingly. Thanks again for posting my psychy.

  2. I was pretty helpless when I realized what I'd done.
