A short update
I haven't been riding at all this week, which has led to not posting. For those who don't know, my day job is emergency preparedness and previously pandemic planning. That being the case you might understand why I've been a bit busy. That has led to long (10-12 hour) days in the office and me being whooped by the time I get home. On top of that, the local weather took a turn for the unpleasant (mid-50s with strong winds) making bike commuting less appealing. Hopefully things will smooth out by the weekend and I'll get a couple of days it. I'm really at the "Rides you need" point, as discussed here.
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.
