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

I've added the "Go-By-Bike" widget to the sidebar. This is a nifty challenge that has emerged from the 1 world, 2 wheels program Trek is running. Basically, you go to the website and it helps you calculate your weekly mileage based on the different places you can bike. You're then asked to pledge to bike that, and you get a fancy little certificate. Finally, you can enter to win spiffy prizes. (My briefness is not to be dismissive, but because the website for the program has much better information, and you're better served by getting it directly from them.)
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.
