I've received many compliments from folks over the past two years of my weight loss, and the past nine months of bike riding. But the nicest one was just this week posted to the Bike Forums site by "Terrierman."
"What the O[riginal] P[oster] .... failed to mention is that the OP also has .... scoliosis and other skeletal problems that would keep most folks off a bike. You can see it if you look a little more carefully at his photos.
"But he just don't seem to care about nothing but getting it done! Which made him and keeps him my hero."
From now on, "I care about nothing but getting it done" is my motto. Thanks, Terrierman. And I cheerfully will continue to be your hero until you see fit to get another one.
