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.

We are there...yet,

...we may still have a cold snap around the corner.  I went out last night and rode across town to a blues concert in jeans and a jacket, no base layer or special nothing except lightweight gloves.  What a refreshing feeling.  I am spending the weekend with some part-time wrenching to get the "fleet" in shape for the summer months.  Taking the studs off was a major improvement, the Hunq feels like a new bike.
I rode out to say goodbye to the last remnants of winter, those mountains at the edge of the mall parking lots.
  Now I have the regular tires on Byron and will feel like rippin' him out on the streets more often.Sunshine will be giving way to some cool rainy days, but the slop of winter is off the streets

 and revealing the strength of nature.  
Now that is a pothole, neighborhood kids probably use that to get some air.  I only think of it.
Hopefully the cold patch crews will be around to rescue us soon.
In the meantime the MUP was drawing the fairweather crews out of hybernation
It made for an entertaining slalom course to run.
