I don’t mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that’s how it comes out. - Bill Hicks That famous quote from the Greatest Comedian Of All Time™ has resonated with me for many years.

  1. I was a runner for 20+ years and in  several clubs over the years and NEVER saw any kind of judgement of skill level or dress. In fact, in one club, there were several Olympians who went out of their way to be encouraging and supportive. When I switched … »

  1. One of my favourite (yes, Canadian spelling) articles. I see quite a few hard-ass female riders in my club here in Vancouver, but lacking in the top-end and middle ranges. Meaning, there are the racers, the A group so to speak. They are tough as nails. Th… »
