Hello Bicycle Enthusiasts

This is my opening salvo – a shot at immortality in the blogosphere. A blog on bicycling:  cycling adventures; bike trips & trippy bikers; bicycle advocacy; silly local, state and federal laws and roadblocks; pain and suffering; Freds and other Tom Foolery. Cycling is a way to travel, to stay fit, to be competitive, to see the sights, to escape, to hang with friends. I’ve been hooked since age 5. Hope I can keep riding till I’m old and wrinkled, and then ride some more.

Welcome & please chime in! (Let’s keep it positively-focused).
