The Sun Shone (briefly) on 2008

The rain ended early and Annie and I started the year with our first ride, a simple loop of 13.4 miles. The sun was actually out and the temperature was 50 degrees. Not bad for January 1st. The sun had just about disappeared by the time we came home and the rest of the day was pretty dreary. Tomorrow's forecast is not promising, but it is my day off and I would like to get at least a slightly longer ride in for a change. We'll see. I also have a lot of work to get done before a speaking engagement in NY on Thursday.

Meanwhile, I thought I'd share this Cycling Code of Conduct posted on the Fredcast website. It comes from Australia and is part of a growing recognition that we cyclists are going to have to take ourselves more seriously as road users as more of us use the roads. Enjoy

I have to admit that I was a latecomer to this blog despite the prodding of my father, who happens to write it. I wanted first to congratulate the author/pater familius for having achieved and surpassed his cycling goal for the calendar year 2007. and I'd also like to aks a question: what is a ludwig, exactly? maybe this question was answered early in the blogation process, but I've not been privy to it and I thought it might bear repitition. that its all and good day.

I want to thank my son for finally reading my blog. Now I'd like to suggest that he scroll down to the end of the blog where there is a permanent explanation of What is a Ludwig along with a picture. Happy reading and riding.
