Cycling Adventures - Index of Articles
Note: If you're coming here via the Fire Ant Gazette, I feel obliged to explain that this section is on the backburner, so to speak, as far as being converted to the new layout.
Also, while I'm explaining stuff, I should point out that the stories in this section are quite old, hence the occasional reference to Laurent Jalabert. In case you were wondering. Anyway, I'll try to add some new stuff someday.
The part of Texas we occupy is, let's say, "topographically challenged." That is, it's flatter'n a pancake*. You'd think that this would be the ideal landscape for bicycling, right? Well, what we lack in hills, we more than make up in wind. Still, we've found cycling to be an endeavor that suits us, and we've had some interesting experiences over the years on the bikes. This is an index of some of those excellent adventures which we've memorialized for posterity (someday, our dog will learn to read). If anything herein sounds intriguing, or if that second double espresso is just now kicking in and sleep is but vague concept, click on one of these links and be instantly (cable modems only**) transported to worlds where the lines between reality and fantasy are blurred, and time is but a vague concept, where...oh, never mind.
*Well, the terrain where we lived when these stories were written was indeed flat. But we now live in the Texas Hill Country, and it comes by its name honestly.
** I told you this stuff is old.
