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.

Thanksgiving traditions.

It has nothing to do with cycling but I thought I would share our Thanksgiving celebration. My son and I don't have relatives here, so every year we have dinner with some friends who host the international students and families from Western Michigan University.   
They would otherwise be stuck doing laundry to take up the day. 

This year we had Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Iraq, China, Jordan, India, Iran, and Nepal 
all at the table together.
In the cycling news, we skipped the winter prelude we experienced.  The foot of snow we received succumbed to a couple of days of rain, which turned to ice, then the welcoming sloppy roads and muted colors of late autumn for the post Turkey fest ride.
Blessed normality!
