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.

Hey, remember these?

Back in the winter I reviewed these

totally dorky looking Musa Splats.  At the time I bought them, I thought they would help with wind chill in the midst of the Michigan winter and they did.  They were, however, designed to protect you little tootsies from the rain.  I hadn't had the chance to use them as intended until my trip home from Ann Arbor during an horrendous thunderstorm and it's aftermath.
    They work great.  They slip on easily, come off easily and the waxed canvas does a great job of keeping your feet really protected from rain.  Even with full fenders, you are likely to get road spray onto your feet from large puddles and they protect against that as well.

After a day in the rain and wet roads, my feet were the only truly dry part of my body and that is the biggest contribution to comfort out on an all day ride.
   You might hate them for being the dorkiest looking accessory ever, but will probably love them for keeping your Gucci's neat.
