Cycling Along The Way...

Riders of the wheel. Racers, Roadies, Mountain bikers, Touring cyclists, Commuters, and others. Diamond frames, recumbents, trikes, and more. Sharing a web of connections often misunderstood or unappreciated by those who don't ride. Herewith, my attempt to share some of the more rational thoughts that flit around inside my head while bicycling, knocking back a brew or three, or just thinking about life. Reviews of bicycles, gear, touring, and more, plus some unsolicited posts about people, politics, and philosophy. Other things, too. Me: retired, gave up my TV in 1988, avid cyclist, several cross country tours completed with more to come. Your thoughts?

PRESIDENT OBAMA...2nd Term Winner!

Barack Obama is the all-American president

Yes, I'm going to take some time and revel in the joy I'm feeling as a result of the 2012 election outcome.  It is the outcome that I was fairly confident of and I'm going to gloat for a while.  What I also want to see is a coming together and a reduction of the animosity coming from the Tea Party and Republican right wing.  This is the time, finally, to reach agreements on job creation, stimulus packages that are needed, and the time to address the debt issue.  Plus the social network issues...in particular, Social Security and healthcare.  No more roadblocks of needed legislation.  It's time to tell the extremists...your agenda didn't fly.  Get over it.  Here's an article from the LA Times that's worth a read, IMHO.

Now, a tune to exit with..."Happy Days Are Here Again" by Ben Selvin and The Crooners from 1930.
