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.

Feelin' pretty good about things here.

Winter looks like it has begun to loose it's strangle hold,
the snow will go away, we now have small dirty piles of ice
where the mountains of snow were.
I'm getting out for a little recreational riding, maybe a brisk 20-25 miles on a couple of days
and expect to start on a weekly club ride this coming week.

People are meeting to help plan changes and develop the cycling infrastructure around town.
It's good to see all these certified experts taking time out of their week to get
 the local municipalities to consider our safety.
Here's a piece of work from the European Cycling Federation's Facebook page.
The spandex hamsters will allow that in US after about 3, maybe 5 decades, but there's hope.
Then you realize there are
coneheads like this guy.
He is on a public rant to have cyclists get licensed.  He goes on and on
ignoring the fact that the vast majority of cyclists have driver's licenses.  People like him think
we live in another dimension of misanthropic illusion and only cross over to use
his roads before slinking off into some homeless existence in the alley behind a coffee shop.   Wake up!
We are drivers also, even more alarming--they let us own stuff and pay taxes too!
He'll probably need a nap to digest that idea.
