Observations, Ruminations, T-Shirts, and Tidbits
One secular humanist's perspective on his experiences cycling

This site offers snippets, both philosophical and physical, originating from my experiences in the cycling arena, into which I regularly enter to try and stay sane, and avoid sphericity, amidst the too cerebral, too chocolate and pepperoni filled, other hours of my days.

What may distinguish this site from others, is its focus on the interpersonal elements of the experience, rather than on bicycle technology, exercise physiology, or ride environment.

I hope my reflections, and other more tangible offerings, prove both entertaining and helpful (and in one case, if nothing else, at least allow me to vent).
