Why I ride
I was happy. Fat and happy. Then my wife Tricia started riding her mountain bike to school. Then she wanted - and bought - a nice road bike, and the next thing I knew I was riding to work too. It's turned out to be fun. The only thing really missing from my life (other than 30 pounds) is
A bunch of money for bike parts
A bit more money for bike tune up
Cash for tires and tubes
Money spent on bike clothes
Money spent on smaller bike clothes
Money spent on still smaller bike clothes
I guess all I really need now is a jersey for Tricia that says "Don't you wish your girlfriend could ride like me?"
