sigh…I miss bicycling

I used to bike to work as often as I could, and for one whole winter, I made a point of biking to work at least once every week. The following winter, I tried to bike to work at least once every month, but I didn’t make it. As much as I insist that it’s the best way for me to get to work, there are schedule constraints to accommodate, and I just can’t pedal as fast as a car goes.

Sigh. I hardly ever bike now. I’ve only biked to my new job once (and that technically wasn’t even a choice FOR bicycling, it was because I let Valerie use my minivan when her car was getting new brakes).

But the real blow to my whole cyclo-persona is that last year, for the first time in several years, I didn’t take my annual birthday-ride-to-Niagara-Falls, and it looks bad for doing that this year. What’s a bicycle nut when he doesn’t ride any more? Just a nut.
