Welcome friends. This humble blog is about the simple observations I discover whilst cycling through lovely Wales.
I hope to offer you dear reader, cheerful reflections upon the days and miles I pedal, along with encouragement to get out and explore by bicycle yourself! Perhaps too, if I attempt a bit of amusing anecdotes along the way, I may invoke your readership as well. Thanks for stopping by... cheers, muse

Pre-Ride Notions...

Sometimes ya just get an itch to go to a place. I've been havin' this itch to go to Brecon for a few weeks, but have told myself no because of the short winter days we have here.

Well, today I'll have none of it. I'm heading to Brecon. I'll be leaving in a few minutes (7:30 am approx.) and I'm going to make a day of it.

It's foggy and gray with thick heavy mist. The temperature is hovering around 7° celsius. It's beautiful.

Crazy Guy on A Bike...

Although many who know me might not argue with the description... the headline above is not a reference to myself.

I'm looking to expand my readership, so I've created an account on the website crazyguyonabike. Visually, the website is not that exciting, but the content and it's functionality more than makes up for it's out-dated graphic design. Honestly, if you're interested in reading about other cyclists travels from all over the world... there is no better source. It's quite easy to get addicted.

I've been an avid reader for many years and though I was reticent to post something of my own... I've made the leap. My thought is that I can post some of my longer rides as raw "picture-postcards"; then re-post an edited or "simplified" version to my blog. In effect, I would be using crazyguyonabike as my travel site and this will retain more of it's blog/freethinking/rambling-nonsense character.

So, with that said, here's a link to my first entry: A Day Tour in Wales. I hope you enjoy.

Lolita Nation

Sometimes I gotta fuckin' check my game... tip my hat to those far smarter than I. Robert Payne gets the nod and well deserved thank you for over 30 years of adventure, inspiration, and just being the dude. Plus he put this shit in my head: Game Theory.

So with "The Waist and the Knees" playing in my head, I am off for a ride.
