old and new ... times are short. but, i'll add through the day.
guess excuses for not writing enough are running low. bugger.
With nothing but a few hours to kill on a bike and an abundance of sunshine to play with - today was a clean canvas for contemplation. I thought about starting an early list for the New Year's Resolutions - but, then I realized that would be too much like planning. I'm more of a seat of the pants kind of guy.
Instead of making a wish-list of things I'd like to do and be in the future, I thought I'd kick out a list of things I'll never, ever, NEVER do or be - not in a million, ga-jillion years.
That sounded easier. And so, let us proceed:
I will never...
- stop eating chocolate
- vote republicant
- have a mortgage
- be fashionable
- buy a new car
- own a tv
- grow bitter
- eat anything made by Kraft
- take myself seriously
- take life seriously
- take another life (seriously)
- colonize anything
- stop loving music
- stop waiving at cyclists
- stop being a dork
- subscribe to any celebrity magazine
- subscribe to any religion
- proscribe anything other than rudeness
- consider myself finished
- stop laughing at the absurdity of it all
- love immaturity or thoughtlessness
- run out of hot water

O'bee has won the US Crit champyship twice. He's been a major player in most events he pedaled at. He was 7th at the USPRO road race this year.

maybe stolenunderground will give him a salary.

heard word that the electric bike is making a big impression in China these past couple years. Unfortunately, China's biggest city (Shanghai) has banned the use of electric bikes, stating that battery disposal is a hazard and that e-bikers break too many traffic laws while riding.
Shanghai police have impounded e-bikes if they see them being used in the city. But, Shanghai is one of the fastest growing consumer markets for cars in the world.
and ... how popular do you think an e-bike will be in the US?
