For myself, I sometimes feel like smelling the roses, and, other times I feel like pushing myself as hard as possible. I enjoy both and often mix-it-up on a given ride.

It's fun playing sprinter.....

I passed 3200 mi recently, which is about 500 more than a year ago. Being retired as of 1/1/19 has made it easier to ride more.

Captain Insano

Captain Insano is Bobby Boucher’s pro wrestling hero in “The Waterboy”. I love that movie - it’s so endearingly stupid. The name has no connection to cycling whatsoever.
