Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

What other interests do you have do other than road biking?

Man, I'm getting old, I see all my old hobbies here; skeet shooting, hockey, and most of all woodworking (I have all the tools, I just need a garage again). I don't know about Astonomy but I do like astronomy.

I might get back into it if and when I get notification from AP on their 130mm refractors. Meanwhile, I really haven't done much of seeing, travelling to a dark site and all, as I've been on that stupid Astro Physics waiting list since 1999. I will most likely turn it around and sell it to some impatient astronomer.....at a decent profit, of course....

hiking
camping
people watching
sushi outings

hmmmmm well... i like to shop! (i like clothes.. my ocp extends to my off bike time!)

i like to work out (other than on the bike... i.e. weights, aerobics, kickboxing, etc)

i'm into a healthy lifestyle mostly.. as in eating healthy.. i have my downfalls (tommy's, pat and oscar breadsticks, in n out burgers, and movie popcorn)
,
i like to spend time with my dog... hiking, throwing the ball... or just being at home with her (and the cats)

i like to read books (currently reading... of all things.. the "shopaholic" series by sophie kinsella.. chicklit stuff... going to read the narnia books next... no.. never read them as a kid! then going to read the lance armstrong war)

i like to hang out and be lazy, too! i record 2 soaps every day and watch them in the evening or when i can.. while on the puter usually!

hmmmmm well.. that's pretty dull... i'm sure there's more (or maybe not! maybe i'm just a dull shopping cyclist?)

"other interests"?

I'm not sure I know what you mean.



Just kidding. I play role-playing games (GEEK!) and play ethic musical instruments -- most notably the Australian didgeridoo and the bagpipes. (Well, I'm learning the pipes.)

I play in two bands (soon to be three with any luck), so that keeps me pretty busy. Other than that, cooking, reading, listening to music, and hanging out with my awesome girlfriend.

Track & field, art, Clasical music - music in general. Electronics, Hi-Fi
Here's a pic of my amplifier. Made by Jean Hieraga, model Lectron JH-60
It's of course modified with different regulating circuits and WBT speaker terminals.
I also use an external regulated power supply that guarantee me a clean 230V AC
So now you know where I picked the name Lectron

I was into SETs (2A3, 40), non-upscaling/digital-filterless, and Tannoy dualconcentric speakers. Sold everything to build my HT, but I'll start all over soon. I miss my music.
