commuterDude (muttered elsewhere on the Internets):
My daily scan of regional Craiglist feed, looking for touring/rando frames, came across advert from a college town which begins with "need to sell bike for gas money..." Um, dude...why don't you sell the CAR for bike spares, and ride it???
The man has a point. It feels like March outside right now. We've had perhaps two days that actually felt like winter this season.
I'm still alive. No, I haven't ridden more than a handful of times in the past month. It's complicated. I wish I could take 'dude's advice. Having a wife that practically lives in a hospital and/or requires constant care at the drop of a hat (up to and including zipping home over the lunch break a few times per week) is putting a serious damper on bike commuting. Like I said, the weather's been perfect for it. Grumble.
But hey! I got to meet A Midnight Rider face to face over some coffee 2 weeks ago.
