I never did write a proper introduction. Short and sweet.
In February 2007 I decided that it was time to get back into shape. I've had this thought before, of course, and it's just never worked out well. This time I decided that I needed to do something that I actually liked, and the only exercise that I've ever done that I enjoyed was biking. The problem was that it's been over 15 years since I'd done much riding at all. My offices moved about a year ago, and are much closer to home. What used to be a 30 mile commute is now 12. I hadn't considered riding when I was 30 miles away, but 12 seemed to be a much better distance for the commute.
My first impressions were simple. I'm old and fat. But I'm doing it.
I ride the "Top of Utah" and have been really enjoying it.
