Random thoughts on the intersection of cycling, Buddhism and libertarian politics.

I try not to post from work, mainly because I don't have access to pictures, but wanted to celebrate getting back to bike commuting. The ride in was great. Cool but not freezing, just about dawn so there was plenty of light but no glare. New lights worked great and the new wheels feel good. The rear seems to be in third gear, so the climb going home is going to be a pain, but other than that I can't wait to get back on the bike. Some time in the next day or so I need to stop by a store and pick up some small zip ties, all the cables are being held in place by twisties that I had around the house and it looks a little lame. I'll add a pic when I get home.
I'm primarily a utility cyclist, commuting and shopping as much as possible by bike. I want to do some tours, and have done a few sprint triathlons. In this blog I tend to ramble on about whatever part of the cycling life catches my fancy. I have some seriou retro-grouch tendencies, and lean towards older steel bikes with tried-and-true parts.
