...I feel compelled to share some bad news. I was out riding on Sunday afternoon and came to a realization that made me stop, sit down in a ditch, and really examine what is going on in my life. I sat there and watched the wind blow through some tall grass, watching the way that the grass would bend when the wind blew hard, but not break off. It seemed to me that my life has become brittle and unlike the grass. I am no longer able to bend instead of break, and I think that the time and energy I have wasted on riding my "big boy bike" could have been better spent working harder, or planning for things that might pop up unexpectedly, or trying to correct any of my personality flaws which have kept people from liking me. You can never be too cautious these days, and I have better things to do than ride around empty headed just looking at grass and rocks. So, that being said, I am hanging up bike riding and the bike mania that I have spent so many years crafting. It's just not fun anymore. If you guys know of anyone who would benefit from a couple of free bikes, I will take a last weekend and distribute my 25+ bikes around to different people. Just check my comments section for more details as they become available. Thanks for reading, and might I say, I have enjoyed this post more than any of the posts I have put up since I started blogging. Thanks to all who have shared their "passion" for what they believe to be a wise use of their time. Goodbye.
