Thoughts on cycling and the moments from rides worth saving before they’re lost in the swirl of stuff that’s supposedly more important.

This started out as an entry that was a runner-up in Bicycling magazine's 2014 Bill Strickland parody contest (http://www.bicycling.com/culture/people/meet-winner-2014-win-any-bike-contest) and became a way for me to remember and share rides. Don’t expect race tips. I’m a perpetual Cat 4.
