Commuting Continues Despite Blogging Lapse

Yes, my cycling commutes have continued even during this dry blog spell. I did suffer a minor set back when I was nearly killed by an oblivious driver a couple of weeks back, but I recovered the nerve to get back on the bicycle this past weekend and rode to and from work again today. I read a quote today that seems appropriate:

"People who accumulate lots of road rash over a lifetime will have spent their lives happy." Tim Parker, mountain bike enthusiast
I'm not sure I look forward to more road rash (in fact, I hope to avoid it), but I do see where Mr. Parker is coming from. Getting out on two wheels and riding is so good for the mental and physical state. It is difficult to deny the truth of his philosophy (despite the pain that is sometimes included). I'll try to post more, but rest assured that if I am slacking on the blog posts, it is not a sign that I have lost the passion for cycling.
