As The World Turns

Cycling has what I call, a meditation in-motion effect. Hours will pass and my mind will go from one thought to the another, then jump up and over to the next. By the time I roll into the driveway you think I would have a solution for world peace?!?! But I guess that is why I love this sport, it keeps me centered.



I wonder what would have happened if I choose to play football for 5 hrs a day instead? After today's episode of MTV Cribs, it makes me think.... hmmm beach house, TV in my closet, marble tops, 20 inch rims.... Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, right? At least I love what I do, I have no complaints.



This guy would have dropped me today but he lost his flip flop shortly after his attack. It's a doggy dog world out here.

We certainly don't ride for the money... :) There is just something about that whole "starving athlete" thing.

Nick... I think "this guy" has bigger calfs than you and that's why he even got as far ahead of you as he did! :)

You with your bikes, me with my guitar. Smooth pedaling action for you, smooth flowing melody lines for me. hope you like the weather in Florida, it broke 35 degrees in Milwaukee. Later Nick.

Sincerely,

Hey Matt, I bet by now you are tearing up that guitar! (You were tearing it up back in 2001!) Great to hear from you bro!

Hey Nick,
Let's just say I have been trying to bust up some excellent grades during my stint at a master's degree for guitar performance. I'm getting better with my craft, and I am hoping to get to share my philosophies of playing to students when I am done with school. It seems you haven't changed that free spirit of yours: very inspiring for anyone, cyclist or not.
Hey did you get the memo that Matt Kelly is making a return to the pro ranks? Hopefully he keeps things positive through the season.

Yeah, Matt Kelly will be riding for the Gary Fisher squad next year. T Lowe will be tough to replace but it will be sweet to have Kelly back at it. You never forget how to ride your bike!

Nick, What would you want with one of those fancy cribs anyway? Isn't it better to live out of the back of a Toureg?
