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.

A beautiful life

Since it's a new year and I have had a chance to review my tremendous success
as a cyclist this past year (let's hear it again for NO FLAT TIRES!).
I've been humbly contemplating the coming year and plans.
That's right, I caught whatever it is, and have been staring at the wall and shivering for days.
I guess cars have some value, like now, when I need to get more kleenex.
I swear, these viruses are mutating so fast you need a subscription to keep up with the proper vaccine.
Anyway, I am finding my schedule for the summer filling up already.  
I have to pass on the Mountain Mayhem this year, because I have week long tours scheduled, before and after.  I have a long trip scheduled in July and August and am really looking forward
to another bowl of chicken soup.


  1. Get well!
    Any chance you can share how often you get socked? I've heard often that people who bicycle regularly are less likely to catch cold/flu. True?

  2. This is the first time in three or four years that I have caught a virus, but this year it has been twice. I think the activity increases the immunity but the viruses this year seem to be something "special."
