Just sticking with protocol...

Hi, My name is Dean (sounds so AA). Having been bike riding for about a year now, I am increasingly aware of how much I have to learn about it. To that end, I will be posting some questions elsewhere herein. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks for the great web site.

“HI DEAN” (groaningly uttered obligatory 12-step meeting response...) ...shift gears--out of the trance and back to the real world... Welcome to BF! The “meeting” here is when you get on your bike and go for a ride. I do solo rides in the countryside or on rails-to-trails riverside blacktopped paths, so my rides tend to be real “communing with nature” type experiences. On nice days with the right weather (which hasn’t happened for a few months right now), it can get to be a Buddhist-like meditative experience. I’ve done decades of meetings (volunteer FD, gun club, PTO, sales/marketing, business management, etc ad infinitum) and my cycling “meetings” are the best I’ve ever experienced. Plus---I don’t have to listen to any ______s (fill in the blank with the descriptive term of your choice) running their mouths. This is as good as it gets. Enjoy it!
