My first blog post from November 2010 was titled Change of season.
I had been reading some cycling blogs [specifically SpringfieldCyclist] and thought to myself, “I could write something like that.” I asked my son how to go about it and he helped me get started.
That first effort reflected on the cold weather that had arrived. In a way, I had also entered a new season in my life as a blogger. I started viewing people and places in a new light; was this person or that event something I could write about? The view from a saddle presents the world from a different perspective.
I searched out more cycling blogs and think it safe to say if you, dear reader, are not family or a long time friend, then you are one of my good blogging friends.
But of late, I sense a change. A change of season.
I am setting aside Two Feet for now.
I will still continue the commute. Jan and I will still get out there when we can (she and I have thought about running once more – one must stay active).
I will also continue to follow and enjoy my fellow blogger’s adventures whether they be rides like Haute Route, CRMBT, mountain bike trails in the Appalachians, the Cheviot Hills of Great Britain, or pictures of Civil War historical markers, backyard birds, road swag and Mt. Ventoux.
Bring it all on.
So friends, keep your tires aired up, your batteries charged and stay on the path. I will still be there, as a rider over the hill or around the curve, unseen, but still cranking away!
