Something magical happened to me in the first grade. I learned to read! From the moment I learned to sound out the words “Run, Spot, Run” in those little Dick and Sally reading books, I was hooked. For a country bumkin kid growing up in a small town, reading was an escape into worlds that I could only dream of. When I was 12, my family moved to a larger small town where they had a library just down the street. It was amazing to me….all I had to do was go in and sign my name on the little cards and walk away with as many books as I could carry.
My voracious reading appetite has abated somewhat as I’ve gotten older and life has taken over. It’s a rare treat now to have the luxury of picking up a book and settling into a chair. About the only chance I get is those rare times I have to get on an airplane and fly somewhere.
Luckily, I still have something of an outlet. I love to read bike blogs on the internet. It seems natural to me because it combines my two favorite activities – cycling and reading. I rarely let more than a couple of days pass without clicking through the list of blogs on the right side of this page. Because of that, I thought I would take a day and highlight some of them. Click through to these folks and give them a read!

When you’re done reading these, get out there and ride. The weather’s nice for a change!
