Bicycling is my favorite hobby. I commute 20+ miles round trip about four days per
week, plus some recreational riding, so I hope that I can share something
useful to other cyclists or would be cyclists.
Honey Run Road, Between Chico & Paradise, CA. It's part of the annual Wildflower Century, though I was going it alone.

No Longer In My Possession...
These have been migrated to my blog...
Linked here, are some bicycling pages that I have found useful or interesting.
- Sheldon Brown's bicycle pages are at: http://www.sheldonbrown.com
I am very sad to report that that Sheldon passed away recently.
His influence will always be remembered... He will be remembered as a
friend, even though I never had the opportunity to meet him in
- Sheldon has a huge collection of useful information, from his very
thorough bicycle glossary to easy to understand technical
articles. Sheldon is also a frequent contributor on the
bicycling usenet groups and has frequently answered my
questions about upgrades & repairs.
- 'Ken Kifer's Bike Pages' are at: http://www.kenkifer.com/bikepages/index.htm
I am very sad to report that that Ken was killed by a drunk driver
while riding his bicycle near his home on Saturday the 13th of
September 2003. Ken will surely be missed by all of those that he
was such a positive influence on. I will especially miss his
positive outlook and generous desire to help others.
- Ken is a participant on a few of the bicycling mailing lists
that I lurk. He says of his pages: "The purpose of Ken Kifer's
Bike Pages is to share what I know about cycling and to
encourage others to bicycle as well." His pages make bicycling
seem like the obvious choice for day-to-day transportation.
- Alex Wetmore's Bicycle Pages at http://phred.org/~alex/bikes/
- Alex has a lot of useful information about how he's made
things work together that weren't designed to do so.
