To my friends who might not be aware, I am an occasional contributor to another blog. Veloquent, is the other blog and is authored by some of the finest bicycle bloggers out there. I begged to be a contributor and they humored me. I'm the high school social outcast being allowed to hang out with the cool kids for awhile.
A few of my favorite prior posts from here were copied and included there. But I suggest you go to Veloquent to read posts from the other talented authors. It really has some excellent writing and has been an inspiration. The name of my recent post on Veloquent is "Down in Texas".
