My right pant cuff is in a tight roll all day (thanks 80's fashion trends!) I guess it's called pinrolling now.

While there is currently nothing there, I own the website vivacycling.com. My email is vivacycling@thatoneoverlylargecompany.com. Mini doesn't "allow" of a hitch on my Clubman, but I got one anyway for a bike rack. Then there is my basement.

Love the cyling themed basement. Excellent! I have a couple of walls in my garage that I'm able to decorate.

too bad I don't have any photos of my hands suntanned after a summer of riding with crochet-style gloves.

A photo of my bookshelf would be useful, I suppose, with a copy of the C.O.N.I. manual on it and the old 70's Raleigh catalogs, etc.

What I do have handy is a shot of a modest stained glass that a friend made for me back in the mid 80's. It's been a while since I had a good window to hang it in, so I've been working on a suitable LED backlight (because I'm also an electronic engineer).



It is based on the logo on a sweatshirt from Michael's Cyclery that I have (still). Micheal's was the local shop while I was in college, and was the home of the Levi's-Raleigh team that included Jeff Bradley, Andy Hampsten, and many other notables.
..but I'm guessing that a few of you already knew about Micheal's...

Not really a cyclist, the caps are not my style.
It's just something odd I got into for awhile.

Fun when descending, not when climbing.
The hills were already there, no use whining.

Wind is ever present, a hill without a summit.
There's no weather mandate, so take it, dad gummit!

A cyclist hasn't changed much, to compare with a pilot.
Nor have bikes. (you thought I'd rhyme that?)

I like bikes. I build bikes. I ride bikes.
I sometimes like bike riders, they sometimes like me.
I'm by no means a cyclist, don't play one on TV.

But I know a few.
