Once Upon a Time, I Made a Promise to a Girl…

That title sounds curious, doesn’t it? Sometimes all you need to get clicks to your site is a clever title. In this case, however, the title is true. It is no secret that I love bicycles. Such a simple machine, but can be life changing. It can be world changing! Burns calories. Saves money. SavesContinue reading “Once Upon a Time, I Made a Promise to a Girl…”

Do You Have One of These?

You ain’t no kind of man if you ain’t got a jar or similar container filled with a variety of nuts, bolts, wood screws, metal screws, screw screws, wire, clamps, washers, wall anchors…I could go on.

LOSING WEIGHT IS EASY!

I alwaysContinue reading “Another Motorist Ignoring the Law”

Keep Your Eyes Peeled

I started commuting by bicycle a long time ago. It was so long ago I have to get my calculator to know for sure. Let’s see…I was living in Norman, Oklahoma, and had just started back to school. 1993.

What is your point?

I’ve been asked this question a number of times, and so far, I haven’t come up with any solid answers. But let me give it a try. First, I can relate. To you. To pretty much every man ever born of a woman. I’ve been fat. I’ve been out of shape. I’ve felt sick. IContinue reading “What is your point?”
