Well, Hello My Friends…

Well, here we are again with another blog post. I really should be doing this way more often. Just sayin’. Plus I like it…it’s fun. OK, cue one of the following tunes…Back in The Saddle (Areosmith), Back in Black (AC/DC) or Back in The USSR (The Beatles)…I’m sure there are more songs with this theme, […]

The Contrarian…

I don’t “hate”. At least I try not to use that word very much. I used to use it a lot in varying ways. But I was a bit angrier back in the day. Now, “dis-like”?… yeah, I do that quite a bit. So much so, that some people may think that I oppose popular […]

Is It Always About The Bike?

No, not always. Shit happens in your life, sometimes unrelated to the bicycle. I know we (at least I) try to have as much as possible in my life relate to or revolve around the bike. Crap gets in the way…but still, even when it isn’t about the bike, I am thinking about the bike and […]

Thanks Dad.

I’m not sure what time of year it was, my mind instantly thinks Summer but that’s probably just me and my nostalgia romancing the whole memory up. Or it could be that as a child growing up in sunny Southern California every day in my childhood memory bank seems to be a beautiful summer day. […]

Shit Gets Real…Simple

So, here we go. I have been racking my brain for the last few days trying to come up with something to write about on this here blog. Trying to come up with something clever, something fresh, you know…something that you would like to read. And then it hit me like a tube sock filled […]

You Are What You Ride

This is going to take a while, and there is a high possibility of me rambling on. So you best hunker down and get comfy. I feel the need to express this again. Sorry, I don’t know why, but here it goes. As some of you may already know, I love the bicycle in all […]
