You may have thought I abandoned this website, judging from my lack of updates throughout the summer, but oh no!! Although I am a bit disappointed that I still cannot get other people to post their stories, the enthusiastic response that most everyone has given when I describe the purpose of this webpage is reason enough for me to continue to post and hope *eventually* others will follow. (If you build it, they will come...)
Back to my temporary absence from the site this summer: the reason is actually simple. I am a triathlete, and like most triathletes... I am totally addicted.
("Hi, my name is Steve." "Hi Steve." "I do... triathlons" " Oh my!")
So, while I have had plenty of run-ins with motorists this summer (surprisingly split about 50/50 as positive/negative interactions) I just haven't taken the time to submit them to this site. I don't think I will try to retroactively post any of those notes (or maybe just a few good ones), but I do plan to keep on updating throughout the fall and even winter. See there is this crazy misconception that bikes are only meant for warm weather, or at least non-frozen weather. To that I say, pshaw! I find that I get even more biking in in the winter (for transportation at least) because you can count on no rain! And of course, less sweat. Both of which combine to mean: less extra clothing required (and no need to find destinations with showers) and less reason not to ride! Anyway, I hope to keep writing and updating, and I still encourage others to do so also.
Hope to see you out there!
