So much to sink one's teeth into; the O'Grady/Ferrentino brotherhood of misfits, miscreants, and misanthropes society.  My two favorite scribes, and none the worse for wear over the duration of the evolution/de-evolution of cycling in the past 35 or so years.  I had been at 1/8 ton for many years, and changing a few eating practices (mostly stopping the late dinners) has dropped about 15 lbs of lard off my can.  I still dream about 220, though it seems way far off.  Nipping about to 64 trips around the sun has brought me some realizations, such as the things that made me happy about a bike when I was a teen, are still very much alive and present in my current pedaling regime.  Freedom, self sufficiency, exploration, and that good ol' oxygen debt.  The essence of life.  Transitioning to the medical field some 17 years ago has me up close to the relative un-health of 'merica, and the devastation brought on by obesity.  Any time spent outside on a bike has to be better than limiting one's recreation to endless pints of ben and jerrys.
