Maybe it’s the milestone of aging that I recently reached. It could be an awareness of the unique foibles of this sport/activity/pastime that I practice.

  1. Wow.  Fantastic article.  Great  commentary. Not 50 yet , but it’s creeping up faster and faster.  At this point in life I do ponder why I love to ride so much.  I’m not a racer, never have been.  I’m  one of  those “soul surfer” cyclist types.  Other th… »
