My ongoing musings about bicycling.
If you'd like to know how I got started read my first post in the December 2006 Archives.

This is height of my busiest season so I have not been blogging much nor riding any long rides. On Wednesday Annie was home which was a nice change so we were able to go out a bit later in the morning but only rode a single loop because both of us had many things to do. I rode again yesterday and today along with a few Brompton miles around town. Today's ride was truly chilly for the first time and we had to switch to slightly heavier clothing. The weather, however, continues to be great for riding.
I am a 64 year old Conservative Rabbi, published theologian and professor of Jewish Philosophy. I have also published two books of poetry and have recently become an avid cyclist along with my wife of 40 years.
I write two blogs, Bicycle-Musings and Pipe Pulpit.
In the news section of one of his early Fredcasts David told the story of one Ludwig from Znnin Poland who at 84 years of age went out for a ride on his bike. To make a longer story short (and you really should listen to the podcast to get all the details) Ludwig ended up in London, England! So I figure if (again, according to the explanation on The Fredcast #1) a Fred is someone who not only rides a bike but is severely attracted to the gadgets and accessories of a certain bike-cultural look (and I guess I'm a Fred without the financial resources to really express my Fredness) then a Ludwig could be anyone over the age of 55 who is not only a Fred, but also loves to just keep riding eating up the miles pretty much unconcerned with speed. Go Ludwig! I'm a Ludwig. Maybe someday I'll figure out podcasting and do a Ludwigcast.
