Hey there. Been awhile. If you’re hip to Twitter and Facebook, you know I’m still around, just in different parts of the Internet. My interest is turning back towards blogging, though. I’ve got an idea for a new blog (or a new direction for this blog) that reflects my changing focus, from road racing to a broader spectrum of competitive and non-competitive riding.

In a nutshell, I’ve been racing less this year but riding more and having a lot more fun on the bike. I’ve gotten back into mountain biking, and I’ve been commuting to work about two or three times per week. Kelley has become a very strong rider, and we ride together most Sundays, often leaving from her parents’ house near Holy Hill.

If I make good on my intentions, my future posts will relate to racing, training, and transportation; mountain biking, road biking, and touring; rides, tips, and maybe even some product reviews. I haven’t decided yet whether I’ll keep it here on Blogger or if I’ll switch over to WordPress. I’m trying to come up with a catchy name right now. It’s slow going, but I’ve already drafted some new posts that will help me set my direction and hopefully aid in the naming process.

Meanwhile, if you’ve never been to the Rivendell Bicycle Works site, go there now and read anything in the “Read” section. I don’t agree with 100% of Grant’s “velosophy”, but there’s a lot of truth there that you won’t find on other bike companies’ websites. While you’re there, if you’re feeling generous, I’d love an A. Homer Hilson in size 55. I’d also be quite satisfied with a 52cm Sam Hillborn (in orange, please).
