Off topic - C&O Canal trip
Before we set out my brother asked, "will we need fenders?" No, I replied confidently; weather reports are clear. Here we see the price of my hubris. (My innocent brother paid the identical price over three days, but as we know the universe is a cold and unfeeling place.)
I like to ride my bike. Once I even rode it across the country (which you can read about at the website showing here). Lately I've been staying closer to home, and nowadays most of my riding consists of my daily commute to and from work. With more than seventeen years and 45,000 miles of bike commuting under my belt, I may have a few interesting things to say, and I hope you agree.
