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.

Bike Week and Lamont Cranston on a rampage!

Boy what a week it was, busy figuring out how to dress in constant rain and falling temperatures.  Bike to work day on Friday was a real event, when I nearly wiped out after hitting frost on a bridge on the local MTP.   It was the only real event that mattered, I missed most of what I wanted to do because I had the wrong address, it was raining, too cold I was too tired and now I am whining.  There was a film festival at a local bar, a couple very cold bike rides and bike camp will be starting.  Oh well we can't do everything here in the midwet,  but on Bike to Work day the Second City rediscovered the evils of cycling and the social ills it creates.  Elsewhere in the universe, the void of humanity known as the center of the world has been rocked by the arrest of Lamont Cranston, 
AKA Alec Baldwin. 
 He was arrested for riding his bike the wrong way in traffic.
Really?  This guy?  Ride unsafe in traffic?  In New York?
He claims he was arrested for being a celebrity, but his star must be fading.  
The police say it is routine when someone is not carrying identification that they be taken into custody for positive id.  What?  Google the bitch for crissakes.  Look at a soap commercial, hell anything.
Now you pissed off the most believable Superhero of all time.
He will bring down the system in the name of freedom for all cyclists.
He will avenge the mistreatment of the notoriously overpaid and famous.
No, dummy!
This knife!
