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.

This is not where I can be!

  I went about the garage, a little frightened.  It's March, I'm in Michigan, it's 80 degrees outside and I'm feeling a sense of elation and confusion pushing me too a state of vertigo.  It's not even the last week of March, but I thought and thought, looked at the weather and thought it over again and again.  Then figured, what the hell!  Live and take some chances.  I did it,  I took the studded tires off our bikes.   My son protested, but not for any practical reason, "The studs make me feel badass," he said.  
  We could be struck with a devastating ice storm at any moment, but being faced with this:
I took the plunge and did it.
I calmed myself by playing 9 holes of  golf and riding 30 miles in short sleeves.
People were planting flowers!  Talk about living on the edge!
