It’s a good day! Google finally released my old blog (“The Adrian Spokesman”) from the shackles, and I’ve been reunited with all my old posts. I’ve imported each and every one, along with the associated commentary, to “Hadrian on a Bicycle.” A few require editing, so once I’ve attended to that I will delete everything from the old site. Meanwhile, I’ve posted a nice little invitation to come hither, and begun counting the days until I can delete the blog altogether and kick Google to the curb.

My CommuteWant a taste of what it's like to see our fair city from the perspective of a bicycle? Click here to watch my commute. (My former commute, that is. Now I ride from Raisin Township.) I can assure you it isn't nearly as bumpy as the camera makes it seem!
Reasons I Ride a BikeMy daughters | It's fun & I enjoy it deeply | For my health | The sense of simplicity | It's relatively inexpensive | The sense of self-reliance & independence | I see it as an act of public responsibility | The sense of being in or part of my environment | To be part of a community | Why not? | For a hobby (for lack of a better word), i.e., to have something other than work to do, think, & talk about | It clears my head in a way very few things do | It's capable of slowing the world down & teaching patience | When commuting, it's quicker than a car more often than not & you get better parking spaces | I've never been a car guy | To be outside | The view | What Would Lance Do? | It's fashionable (sometimes) | It's unfashionable (sometimes) | So I can order anything from the menu | For those who cannot & their supporters | The easy exchange of pleasantries with others while en route
look for more to come...
