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.

Today, the cold had brought a solid crust on the top of the snow.
The bike path was freshly plowed and there were rivulets frozen into ruts beneath the snow.
I was riding downwind, the chill was no problem despite the single digits.
A squirrel burst from a bush beside me, exploded into a gallop.
He was desperate,
He rushed across snow crust as if on a track.
Surging ahead, he bolted up a tree near the trail,
and stared me square in the eye as I passed.
