Rat’s Don’t Have Mice.

Rat’s Don’t Have Mice! My Father reiterated this when encountering self-absorbed hateful people intentionally misleading themselves shrouded beneath consciousness. History confirms Ivy-League Rats have no leadership or economic skills having brought this evolving democracy to its brink. So much at risk. Evidently humankind. With extraordinarily few humans concerned. Get out of your car now save your life and this planet from the Rats while you still possess the occasion to appreciate life and Mother Natures glorious planet.

Now the Rat infested Military Industrial Complex is out of manufactured enemies they turn their mighty military ignorance on China? Would we go to war against the country that makes everything for US? One could insinuate Walmart guided China and US to this unintentional codependency. We have China surrounded by military bases. Hundreds of them. Would you not take precautions against the only military to deploy nuclear terror upon its fellow humans?

I was five when I discerned the utter corruption the USA represented. I figured if the government couldn’t deduce the assassins of President Kennedy the government played a role. The Warren Commission Report, made for genuine comedy the instant it was contrived. The Military Rats conspired with unconventional Rats not dissimilar to today’s Rats of selective ignorance ravaging the previously infested GOP and beltway with their obsequiousness to stupidity.

Charles Bukowski’s valid observation ringing truer every day. “The problem with the world is that intelligent people are full of doubt, while the stupid ones are full of confidence.”

Our figurine leaders unquestionably enabled the assassinations of the Kennedys, Malcolm X, Dr. King, Medgar Evers, Fred Hampton, and everyone else who stood for peace. Vietnams scam. The cold war scam, Gulf War One, followed by the knavery of September Eleventh and blunders of Bush. Look into The Project For A New American Century for some understandings of the substances at play that day. Learned Rats at play.

Today I see Rats everywhere and the concept of “American” in sixty-five has been assassinated along with every attempt at peace. America is exceptionally selectively ignorant. How many people drive just to Starbucks for a six-dollar coffee every minute, hour, day, year? All US Rat’s scampering to and fro inside automobiles of death addictively spending with no discernment. Unseeing consumerism inspires our annihilation.

E-Bikes For Everyone. If Chris Hayes can do it so can you.

If you’ve encountered folks with excessive cash you have a taste for this type of psychopathic delusion. Funny how money advances the belief in one’s individual bull shit. “What’s great for me is fabulous for everyone else?” I can’t wait until tomorrow; I get better every day. Richer every day yes, better, I think not. Yes, his spacecraft was a giant penis. What a dick!

Jeffrey Sachs is known for his concise intelligence and never beating around the brambles.

My point with all this information is. Clearly, centuries the lying and deception on behalf of our government has delivered us to this apex of self-extermination. Humanity’s only chance will be through the exploitation of the electric bicycle. If your life situation permits you would be foolish not to take full advantage of this life-changing cycling revolation.

Every moment spent on my bicycle is my constant reminder of how astounding this thing called life can be if you step outside the creature capitalism has turned you into. So many of US missing the point trapped in The Rat Race.

I’ve dabbled in most forms of exercise with Cycling standing alone as life’s most common-sense, economically practical method of achieving fun, health, healthy fun, mental health, transport, stress relief, exercise, errands, and most importantly cycling will provide your life the unique revolutionary life-affirming revitalization you’ve been seeking. You won’t live and regret it although you will commence living. I thought it not possible until I had only a bicycle. It was my bicycle that steered me to this unprecedentedly life-affirming road.

This liberating road to freedom is wide open to all of US and just outside your door every moment of every day and night for the rest of your life. Get on your bike daily and do your part in exterminating these ignorant, oily military Rats from this country. Our government will not save US; we will with every oil-free bicycle mile. Get out there today and find yourself or sit out the remainder of your undiscovered dwindling lifetime.


What A Wonderful World It Could Be!

What a Wonderful World will transpire when everyone pedals a bicycle. Visualize it! The pandemic proved the significance of these bicycles. As the cost of a gallon of death proceeds arising the bicycle will naturally lengthen its sound economic rootstocks within our culture. The immeasurable compensations of cycling personify common sense salubrious living.

Alleged World Leaders just finished their exorbitant carbon-filled trip to Glasglow, Scotland for the Conference Of The Parties Climate Summit devoting themselves to extinction with their greenwashed lip service.

With all the parley of Carbon, the actual elephant at the conference was Methane Gas which is 80 times more potent than CO2 and is seriously under the media radar. The fact is if more if not most all of the US doesn’t start deploying a bicycle as your principal form of transit human extinction is inevitable.


The sight of that parking lot full of cars with bicycles atop befuddles me, more notably in a town with Golden, Colorado’s Cycling Stature. For Lance Armstrong’s sake, there are sixteen-foot wide concrete bicycles lanes everywhere in Golden yet the idea of riding four to seven more miles to and from the park is not in your wheelhouse of thoughts.

If you prognosticate? “I don’t have the time to bike to the park.” Ride Faster! I guarantee the time you expend screwing around with that foolishly valued bike rack moreover bartering traffic will be a stress-packed comprehensive wasteland of considerable carbon-based energy.

The poorest countries on earth are presently suffering the most severe and frequent impact of our selectively-ignorant lives and it’s nevertheless business as usual. Burn baby burn.

Dr. Carl Sagan Predicted Today’s Self Exacted Climate Predicament For Congress In 1985. This Was Of Course a Time When Politicians Trusted, Revered, and Valued Scientists For Their Expertise. Regrettably, Nothing Improved as Capitalisms Selective-Ignorance of Mother Natures Realities have come home to roost

Humanity emitted a record amount of Carbon this past year. Actually, no one seems to care, ensnared in debt, working despised jobs, collecting unneeded stuff to dazzle souls they can’t stand. If that ain’t a Rat Race? What Is?

Electric Bicycles are game-changers for humankind as the oil passes from our lives it would be foolish to this cycling technology pass by your life. To date, our lives have been emulsified in oil. This can be no more if there is to be anymore. If you’ve been weighing the life-affirming transformation to full-time cyclists there has never been a finer time technologically and environmentally. Mother Nature as we require her requires as many of us on bicycles as humanly conceivable.

Let’s not overlook how swiftly our planetoid commenced reinvigorating herself when we got outside our cars for a few months during the initial lockdown. If we don’t start collaborating with Mother Nature rather than uniformly ignoring and assaulting her our days are certainly further calculated.

A full-time cycling life will simplify your life while redeveloping your world in a previously undiscovered fortified and fulfilling manner. Learning your own town on a bicycle for the first time is evolutionarily enlightening. Not unlike your first real ride away from home as a child truly exploring and discovering your neighborhood; your world.

I’ve submitted earlier. If you can’t carry it on a bicycle is there a need for it?

None of us petitioned to originate on this planet. If you were blessed and born in the US you’ve got a leg up on many. You can shower and shit at will pretty much do what you want when you want to. I’ve been homeless. Showering and passing can be a hurdle. If it’s fifteen-below outside your tent the tile flooring is brisk and shaving is brittle.

Exasperating it is to see a bicycle adorning a car. If you load your bicycle on your car and drive to work to sandwich in a ride at lunch consider riding to work round-trip on your new electric bicycle. Sell your car while it’s still worth something. Buy your new E-Bike and bank some cash monthly with no insurance, registration, parking, upkeep, $400.00 tires. You could pick up a stylish electric bicycle for merely two car tires. The automobile is an orfice you continually emancipate cash from.

Right now is a miraculous time for a bicycle ride moreover with enough of US cycling, we could pull off the imminent miracle we need.

The United States auctioned off oil and gas drilling lease’s in the Gulf of Mexico after climate talks. It is clear if the human race has any chance of surviving this astounding level of selective ignorance on behalf of our so-called leaders it will take action by all of US. So get out of that car and flourish on your bicycle or stay in that car and perish.

Admittedly, my point endures. If you have a hankering for a Wonderful World journey by bicycle every day not solely for your exercise but for your planet.

Cycling prevails as the simplest, most cost-effective, delightful, healthy, stress-free, common-sense, methodology for any errand furthermore cycling is the transcendent passageway for existence.


Cycling Is Life’s Panacea.

Panacea is defined as a cure-all. From my viewpoint, Cycling is unquestionably life’s cure-all. Cycling continuously renovates my day, my life, my soul, my points of view. Cycling is complete control with comprehensive freedom where the roads, trails, paths are subject to your interpretation.

This liberating control and freedom produce a therapeutic healing horsepower for life. A cure-all for the day’s ills, stresses, hassles, headaches, backaches, life aches. The instantaneous and total clearheadedness that infuses me at that moment I first roll invalidates the drudgery of life’s daily bullshit. In an instant, you are a child again and as pure you as you’ll get each day.

Is the most treasured part of your day on your bicycle? Do you create rationalizations to ride your bicycle? Do you carefreely ride in the snow or rain? Is your chain always clean? Is your bike perpetually cleaner? Do you have at least four pairs of sunglasses? Different lens colors of course.

Do you own “Breaking Away?” Do not rent it as you’ll want to own it.

Do you ride every day at least once? Do you own a car? Do you view cycling as a drudgery-filled exercise or a place of constant absolute delight in life? Do you ever miss a full moon?

Do you believe in today’s climate realities? Do you care? Do you covet fall? Do you maintain a wool scarf, baklava, weatherproof gloves, ski goggles, and possibly studded tires? Do you use low-temperature chain lube? Are you exasperated inside an automobile?

If you answered yes frequently you might find my research advantages this winter. I ride my bicycle everywhere in constant pursuit of refinement investigating new gear and clothing plausibilities. A few recent gems are these shorts’ base-layer systems and gloves.

The perfect cycling clothing isn’t necessarily manufactured within the cycling industry. I found these shorts new at GoodWill. Palmyth Sport Fishing Shorts are the best all-purpose cycling shorts I’ve discovered. Ultra-Lightweight, stretchability, water repellent, a transcendent pocket system, and superb belt-loop design.

SmartWool’s Base-layer INTRAKNIT Merino Wool is an excellent fabric to deploy adjacent to your skin. Warm, soft, breathable, pleasantly snug fit, stylish yet never gaudy. SmartWool’s products are worth every warm and cozy dollar. Wool, Cotton, and Hemp are perfect fabrics. Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary subdued Everest with leather, cotton, wool, and iron. Smartwool products are addicting. The comfort and quality of all their clothing are superior and Wool is Wonderful.

Gloves for winter cycling are nebulous. After constant research I found this combination to be affordable and utilitarian. Grease-Monkey or Iron Clad shop gloves inserted in extra-large rawhide ranch gloves. The Iron Clad is available in two different insulation grades, general, and heavy with the heavy best for winter. The Iron Clad gloves deliver superior all-season performance. Insert Heat Packs when needed. You may discover this gear is essential for the winter cycle and more affordable than the cycling industry’s competition.

Riding the Panacea-Cycle can be your cure-all. Open that door now and commence healing. Cycling heals, embellishes, rejuvenates, personifies, renews, and furnishes the definition for this life comingling you and nature throughout your day rather than the decomposing death your automobile provides.

There are no downsides to cycling. The automobile is all downside starting with the fact that everything about an automobile is killing you. Everything about a bicycle will cure-all.

Cycling is life’s panacea. Easy, affordable, wholesome, liberating, self-sufficiency personified, practical, good for you, and I’m sure the single best thing you can do for yourself every day.


It’s All In Your Head.

Regretful day at work? Go for a bicycle ride. Upset with someone? Ride your bicycle. Stressed out? Take a ride on your bicycle. Feeling depressed? Ride your blues away. Anxious? Grappling to resolve a predicament? Take a spin. Is your planet dying? Riding a bicycle will unimaginably change your world while helping to save ours.

It’s Home To All This Big Blue Ball. It Won’t Look So Alluring In Flaming Red. Transform The World With Your Bicycle Forthwith.

In the instant, my foot contacts that pedal my being is embellished. In that instant, my senses take over as nature reminds me why I’m here and who I am. The Sun. The Sky. The Trees. The Wind. In spring, summer, fall, winter, and every day in between.

Several of us are uprooted from nature trapped in the Capitalist Rat Race. Consider the amount of your life dissipated in the automobile when you could be riding your bicycle. The Electric Bicycle has eliminated all your excuses.

Cycling is astonishingly invigorating and there is no more elegant way to leave the day’s shit in the dust and no clearer path to instantaneous relaxation. Cycling moves you to a state of consciousness that is nebulous. Your reality, legs, lungs, and moreover your psyche.

A competent explanation of this intangible consciousness eludes me. If cycling moves you like me you get my drift. Something about all your senses lighting up simultaneously once you commence rolling. Rolling into a different state of mind. In a different state of presence, you are outside yourself.

It’s the synergy of you and your bicycle that takes you to this mysterious place of oxygen-debt, endorphins, and immersion in a constant state of challenging fun.

Visualization is a cycling component often overlooked. Visualization can take you beyond prior unrealized physical and mental boundaries. The idea of getting in a car to exercise let alone putting your bicycle on your car to ride it is bewildering. That annual so-called Health Club membership could finance a quality bicycle. Pumping Iron I don’t get and golf is not a sport. Cycling perpetually leaves you craving more and has no downside. If you cycle every day, every day grows more engaging.

The Bicycle is humanity’s most elegant achievement and the best therapy money can buy. The overwhelming common sense of riding a Bicycle will inundate your life with, relaxation, fun, health care across the spectrum, practicality, frugality, fun, and above all a new sensitivity for Mother Nature.

When confronted by seemingly insurmountable climate issues. People often respond perplexingly with. “What Can I Do?” It’s Not Rocket Science. Cycling benefits thou and everyone around thee. If you’ve been saving a lifetime of justifications not to make the life-changing shift to Full-Time Cyclists there has never been a more compelling reason to make this jump than complete planetary collapse. If you enjoy Cycling do more of it. If you are on the fence? It’s all in your head.

The automobile is a reflection of humanity’s growing indifference. You’ve been indoctrinated into relying on that car when your feet and or your feet on pedals will take you where you need to go. The automobile is only a road to needless spending and a slovenly lifestyle. If humanity has any prospect of riding out of today’s manmade environmental shitstorm it will be with more of the US on Bicycles.

I’ve seen and experienced more than most working in broadcast news and film. I’ve worn many hats and manipulated most tools. I shot, developed, and edited 16-mm film for the local evening news in 1977. The concept of a GoPro or HD Camera Phone was science-fiction to me.

I kept my typewriter next to the first Macintosh computer for five years just in case and road this bicycle a Peugeot PX-10. State of the art and wireless shifting was not an option.

Technology has changed our lives and most things in it. Cycling remains primarily unchanged. Electric bicycles are game-changers and component technology has come miles. Yet Cycling at its core remains the same. Life-Changing with no downside.

It has been my experience that Cycling is assuredly one of life’s predominantly beneficial experiences. It is foolish to miss out on this ride if you have the means. Cycling will extraordinarily transform your life for the better every day and I can’t profess this about all my experiences.

Let Cycling transport your life to that unimaginably advantageous place every day from this day forward. If you’ve been feeling trapped? Cycling has therapeutic solutions for all life’s dramas without the price of a couch.

Cycling is an evolutionarily rejuvenating space of absolute clearheadedness and unquestionably the most exquisite encounter you will produce tomorrow and you will realize it’s all in your Clearheadedness.

The only thing you can change in this life with such comprehensively life-sustaining embellishments is the interjectinon of cycling as your primary mode of transport. Just imagine the possibilities.


A Golden Time To Cycle Through Life.

There are seasons, and there are seasons. Then there is Fall; The Golden time of the year for cycling. Invigoratingly crisp air, crunchy leaves blowing about your way. Every day feels, as my daughter once said. “Brand New.” She once asked me. “Dad, Do You Remember When I Was Brand New?”

Everyday Is Brand New On Your Bicycle. A kind of reset where your priorities instantly change in the direction of fun and adventure in pursuit of one errand or another, usually evolving to a more extended ride home than your errands originally dictated as fun takes charge of your life aboard your bicycle again. I find Cycling exceptionally vivid in fall as if psilocybin was in the air.

The adventurous fun starts when the ball of the foot contacts the pedal, sparking an instantaneous collaboration between brain and body, suffocating you with joy from head to toe and back again and again and again and again. You’ll find it’s always when you’re having fun you’re at your best no matter the task.

I’m not privy to another word for it. Fun. You know what I mean. It takes you instantly three to seven-tenths of a mile later you realize how great you feel. Also, learning how much fun this incredible feeling of fun makes you feel simply by riding your bicycle. It’s Not Rocket Science. It’s Fun. Riding a bike always makes you feel spectacularly alive, engaging all your senses and motor skills simultaneously in a synergistic balancing act that personifies life.

The bicycle is humanity’s finest mechanical achievement. It was downhill after coal was first burned, followed by the second nail in our coffin, the internal combustion engine and its deadly offspring, the automobile.

Someone said: A bicycle Is either: A child’s toy and a rich man’s folly or a poor man’s last resort. The latter for me in 2007.

I lost all but a bicycle, tent, sleeping bag, and JetBoil. Lived in this tent for a year. Four miles from a Rec-Center open at five am with showers, free wifi, and ac 24-7-365. Five miles from a thrift shop for new old clothing. Two miles from a 24-hour grocery store with Patio Set-Up and wifi. I had a home, health club, and office spread out over a five-mile radius, a glorious commute every morning, and rent just suitable for my trickling-down economics.

It Was A Golden Fall In My Tent.

Tent Life is peaceful, calming, and rejuvenatingly grounding in every imaginable contemplation. Surrounding myself with the amenities mentioned earlier, I was fortunate enough to situate my tent adjacent proved elegantly convenient for some necessities.

My quality Sleeping-Bag essential. I retained it from my x-wife. A wedding, birthday, or anniversary gift? Still have it. Those goose-feathers nestled in Gortex saved me from inevitable hypothermic demise that December, January, and February.

My twenty-year-old Diamond-Back was critical to survival and employment that year. I climbed a slew of hills previously deemed ridiculously steep and or long while painting house exteriors. Plenty of ridiculously sized homes atop equally laughable inclines. Most days included twenty or thirty miles of daily commuting on that dependably diverse Diamond-Back in all the weather nature could muster.

I built off the beaten path trails to and from my tent accessing various county roads while creating a network of efficient and scenic shortcuts for the reality of my current Bicycle and Tent Lifestyle. The JetBoil was a tremendous resource as well. Lighting fast coffee, soup, and shaving water. I reminisce about tent life often. It was an experience I do not regret.

This fall, I find it impossible to be too tired to ride even following ten hours in a kitchen. The crisp alluring air is like a transfusion of life with every ride. I’ve had four transfusions many days this fall. I work close to home, 0.7 miles always getting lost in a fall-cycle heading home on one five-mile loop of another. Cycling and fall blend for spectacular synergy; it’s challenging to be off my bicycle in fall.

Here are some highlights from fall in Golden, Colorado. A stunning rollercoaster of seamless concrete along The Clear Creek with a giant-slalom-like descent from Table Mountain traversing Downtown accessing Golden’s new trail system along Clear Creek Canyon.

Groovin In Golden, Colorado’s Graivity. It Is Stunning In Clear Creek Canyon.

Whether living in a tent or now a perfectly sized house with an Apple Tree in my yard nature and cycling have sustained and embellished my life in so many fabulous ways, all the while taking me down roads I’d never discovered entrapped within the automobile’s grasp on my life. If I’d stayed in that car I’d not be having these liberating thoughts or any thoughts for that matter.

On your next Fall Bicycle Ride please don’t forget; Spring is just around the corner and these days winter in Golden, Colorado is more like an extended fall.

Ride every day to live every day. Don’t continue letting your life slowly turn to rust in that automobile. If you are making excuses the rust will persist in slowing your life so get on that bicycle and blow the rust off your life before the rust of that capitalistic automobile completely overtakes your soul in this cycle of life.


In The Zone. How Did I Get Here?

Can you transcend yourself and subsequently your perceived physical limits of your body to find that elusive zone where effort is effortless and time non-existent. How do you know you’ve gone too far till you get there? In exercise/sport don’t allow the illusion of your body to distract from the true power of your being.

Exercise is meditation and if you delineate between “Yourself” and “Your Body” you will find that zone.

When I think of someone preforming outside their physical bodies limitations there can be only one. Larry Bird of The Boston Celtics was feared by everyone who ever attempted to defended him in every game he ever played in and when the pressure was insurmountable Larry Bird terrified the entire NBA.

Whatever your game The Zone is out on the training road of dedication and hard work. Whatever your game you must love it. Cycling is never a labor and always pure fun. Your at play and your exercising and you feel like a kid every time you ride a bicycle. It can’t be just me?

It’s out there as a kid where you’ll find the effortless spaces outside the realities and limitations of your physical body where you move beyond your previous realities and limitations.

A Bicycle’s uniqueness is in it’s ability to transport us all where we need to be. A younger state of mind within a younger state of being. It’s therapeutic madness on two-wheels.

Golf is the only game where the ball stares at you. Tiger Wood was devastating on any course when in his zone. They lengthened the course at The Masters after Tiger mastered it making it look like miniature golf along the way.

Lance Armstrong. Drugs sure. It’s Professional Cycling! Let’s not forget all the tour contenders where doping back then. They just got crushed repeatedly by a cancer survivor with one testicle who simply out smarted and out trained them all. Seven years in a row!

Mr. Armstrong’s job was Too Win The Tour de France. So he did. Seven Time in a row. Defeating cancer and a dopy field of competitor’s while Cycling’s Governance and Big-Money had an injected interest in Lance Armstrong’s success.

The sport’s history is polluted with drugs and blood-doping and to call out Lance Armstrong is a fucking joke.

Lance Armstrong and his bicycle revitalized a wilting cycling world in desperate need of air in it’s tires. Mr. Armstrong blew the entire cycling industry up with his devastating Seven Year Dominance of the most demanding athletic event on earth. Have you ever tried the tour and if in Lance Armstrong’s Saddle what would you have done Too Win? Me Too!

So The Zone is out there and you don’t have to be Larry, Tiger or Lance to get there. So get out there now and find it. Zone Out.


A $10 Key Personifies Capitalisms Selective Ignorance.

Golden, Colorado was one of those towns that seemed to have everything you need. Everything you need was found at The Local Hardware Store. Meyer Hardware had everything you need.

The Meyer Hardware store.

Everything from a single finish nail thru a Professional Kitchen-Aid Food Mixer. You could copy a door-key for around $1.87. Meyer Hardware closed it’s doors after decades of helping Goldens citizens keep thing working. Now with Meyer Hardware most likely slated for overpriced dwellings you must pay $10’s for a single key at the Safeway $10 Key Kiosk. Yes $10 for a key and they will print advertising on your key for an additional fee.

Unless your a fulltime cyclists you now have to drive to Home-Depot for a slightly cheaper key. Around $6.00 whereupon you will buy something you might not need. That is the plan. Oil back at $80.00 pre-barrel. A gallon of cheap milk now cost more then a Latte. Trickle-Down my leg economics.

Reagan should have received an Academy Award for playing President; and they called Clinton “Slick.” Reagan was as slippery as Exxon and Mobile with the truth. He was just another gun and drug runner at the end of the day with the proud and defiant Oliver North waiting as his fall-guy. Plenty of Bush in the background while all this deceit was sowed upon US under that actor.

The $10 Key is simply another example of Capitalism’s Collapse while sucking US dry. Aldous Huxley foresaw today’s collapsing society specifying the ingredients in this 1958 sit-down with Mike Wallace. Watch a recipe for collapse encapsulated in this fascinating interview; uninterrupted by commercials.

In the days of Intellectual Journalism you could smoke on live television and everyone was vaccinated. Mr. Huxley told US this was headed our way but everyone was watching Football, the OJ Trail, Squid Games and Fox News?

The misuse of television postulated by Mr. Huxley in 1958 really drives home the intentionally conniving and devastating ignorance unleashed on this gullible society by Facebook and Twitter.

Having worked in local television news in the 70’s I do remember Journalism. There is little left of it. The Lewis F. Powell’s doctrine wholly unleashing Corporate Power’s soul-crushing dominance over our lives, courts and governance bringing US to The United States Of Selective-Ignorance or A Nation of Nihilists. Powell’s agenda was primarily to make American compliant and stupid with corporations running the show. Seems to have succeeded.

The wealthiest and most powerful military in history just lost two twenty-year wars. Intentionally or with complete incompetence; both most likely and neither surprising. The United States Military defeated by two of histories poorest countries. The war-profiteers did win and we all pay for their victory in taxes. Our tax dollars do Kill Babies. Always have. You can ponder this part of your soul? Or get out foxed watching football?

We are the apples. The Tree is the country we stole by way of genocide. The Preying Mantis is Capitalism. Sucking US All Dry. Now Amazon and it’s megalomaniac founder have pounded the final nail in the local business coffin. America seem to need it’s sock’s delivered the same day in 2021. I find all I need on my bicycle. It’s a frugal way to roll.

Now that religion openly climbed in bed with capitalism all bets are off. Religions complicity in all this greed is sickening and would be tolerated by No God I know. Religion is and always has been just as fictional as democracy.

I believe Adam and Eve were simply earths first Relators. If only they went for a bicycle ride that day instead of messing with that apple automobiles might have never been invented. Driving a car is a sin.


It’s All In The Bicycle Ride.

All the answers you need will come to you on your bicycle. Your mind and imagination is helpless inside an automobile held in captivity by capitalisms mind numbing effects on your soul completely debilitating your brain and subsequently your creativity.

Everyone is creative but you won’t grow your creativity in a car. Creativity flourishes on a bicycle. A bicycle simply brings your life closer to nature where it belongs. After all the bull-shit and consumerism it is nature that gives us life, all life.

A bicycle creates freedom, freedom to think and imagine. A bicycle creates health. Health for you and your planet. A bicycle creates financial freedom. Freedom from endless automobile expenses. A bicycle creates a new you. A bicycle creates with every ride. Ride it now. You’ll see what I mean.

The automobile has you trapped in more ways then you may realize. You’ll realize all these traps holding you back clearly once commuting on your bicycle. Your automobile is your anchor to Wall Street. Your ball & chain to capitalisms enslavement of you life and soul. Cycling leaves that slave life in the dust. Cycling led me to the work I love and love my work.

Ever wonder if Heaven runs on socialism or if Jeff Bezos with be the richest soul in Heaven? I don’t believe we will need Amazon there? Ever wonder why are there no Libertarian countries? Could it be because it’s a stupid concept? Unless you are wealthy enough to think that way. Libertarianism might work in Heaven as I understand it all Heavenly needs are included in the membership plan and there’s no initiation fee. The initiation fee is included in your participation in The Sunday Cash Basket Grab by the Church. So you’ve got that going for you.

I hope there is Cycling In Heaven. You would think so with all the hype. Bicycles would be a great way to move around such a spectacular place and I’ve heard there are no flats in Heaven. Wouldn’t even need Electric-Bicycles.

I was nine when this ad hit the only three television networks and PBS. I knew then at nine humans could not pull this game of life off. Greed superseded taking proper care of our planet. It is decades if not centuries of lies on behalf of our so-called leaders that have landed us all in this self-inflicted shit storm.

This is the defining image of Corporate and Governmental America today with their heads in the wrong places in one form or another for way too long with that stench of selective-ignorance overwhelmingly obfuscating the compelling climate realities we need to address. The realities of the man made climate change now killing us at a frighteningly accelerating rate with, water, fire, mud, heat and the rapidly melting ancient ice currently encompassing this planet for the time being.

The incomprehensible benefits of exercise will never be fully understood as it’s an evolutionary evolution this learning the boundaries of our limits if any. I recommend cycling if you’re new to the exercise game. Cycling is the single most effortless, enjoyable, economical, and effective method of achieving ongoing fitness throughout your life.

A gym membership is one of life’s greatest misuse’s of your dollar along with cable-tv bills and countless automobile expenses. Don’t get me started on The Country Club crowd. That’s an entirely different exercise for life. The exercise of whitewashed self-delusional selective-ignorance. The best thing about a Country Club is usually the Turkey Club and the free range balls.

A bicycle will transport you and your life to a new and revolutionary place. A bicycle will provide rejuvenating new access to your brain, your body, your soul and most importantly your reason for living. It’s a simple life affirming change you will never regret. Your freedom will expand everyday with every ride. Get out there tomorrow and start anew. A new life that is.

slpeI’ve been fortunate in this life in many, many ways. I’ve dabbled many things, had many jobs, sported many sports, visited many places, lived in many domiciles, slept under many stars. The best thing I’ve experienced, the most life-fulfilling experience of all is cycling. Cycling has no down side. Get out of that car. Save your life and your planet on two wheels as part of your everyday living. Cycling is life’s best method of rolling through this life with ease. A simple bicycle’s all encompassing benefits will astound your life.


The Fear Gear. Use It Or Lose It.

Fear is Cycling and Running’s most efficacious component. Humanities plushest bicycle might as well be a rusty Tricycle without fear in your gear-box. Your Fear Gear is located at your exhaustion threshold. The Fear Gear, turning it on and off in a slipstreaming evolution of fatigue, pain and gain is a dance between you and your VO-Max.

A rare and sometime elusive gravity field in this exhaustion zone where thought’s of limitlessness propel your efforts. As if Somebody inside you is pushing you Somewhere you’ve yet to venture. Out on the edge. Near total collapse. Stay on this train of thought. This mysterious and ostensively effortless self-propulsion is astonishingly narcotic, where muscle fatigue doesn’t equate to pain. It’s just a new level of fatigue to embrace and overcome.


“No matter how hard you train, Somebody will train harder. No matter how hard you run, Somebody will run harder. No matter how hard you want it, Somebody will want it more, I am Somebody.”

“A lot of people run a race to see who is fastest. I run to see who has the most guts, who can punish himself into exhausting pace, and then at the end, punish himself even more.” Steve Prefontaine.

At Just 21 In Munich Steve Prefontaine Laid In All Out In This 1972 5000 Meter Olympic Final. Bringing The Best Out Of The Field and Lasse Viren, A Tremendous Athlete With A Career Haunted By Blood-Doping.

When I’m scared I’m quickest. Scared of what? I never seem to discover, just scared. Dopamine, adrenalin and caffeine milling around. How do you know you’ve gone too far till you get there? Are there limits to limits?

Steve Prefontaine saw no limits. Steve was Nike’s first Signature Athlete in 1974. Steve and Bill Bowerman’s collaboration at the University of Oregon crafted a one of a kind champion in Pre. Bill Bowerman Co-Founded Nike, invented The Waffle Trainer with waffle-irons in a backyard shed and served in the US Army in WW2.

” Someone who can punish himself into exhausting pace, and then Punish himself even more”. Fear of oxygen-debt, fear of collapse. Your running or riding away from past limitations. It’s a scary place so never slowdown in this vague and hazy space. On wheels or feet if you want to get stronger you will need to embrace muscle fatigue and look to the hills with some fear.

Quality Always Outpaces Quantity.

I ride as fast as possible whenever possible. No speedometer. No odometer. No GPS. No counting of anything. The GPS in my head. A smooth surface. Maximum tire-pressure. Ideally a carbon seat, seat-post and handle bars. Never counting miles. Always reveling in memories.

The bicycle is perfect synergy between human and human ingenuity. A Bicycle Ride will always embellish your life. What are you afraid of? Get out today and find your Fear Gear. It’s just a breath or two away.


The Edification of Effort.

My point is repetition leads to refinement whatever the sport, activity or task. Same applies to work. Find work you enjoy and refine it. A Prep Chef for ten years I’ve memorized every recipe constantly refining ingredients and methodologies. The light is there in all doing if your willing to look. Stowing a three-thousand pound food order just to make that Apple-Pie anew atop that mountain of cardboard.

A handful of marathons, most of them struggles resulting from procrastinated preparation. One Long Beach, one Boston, one Miami, eight in New York City. The New York Marathon is the most exquisite marathon experience you can have. The pinnacle of organization and support from sunrise at Fort Wadsworth to a rainbow colored afternoon in Central Park. With more international runners The New York Marathon is a melting pot within New York’s historic melting pot of culture. Just walking amidst this city of cities is a cultural marathon.

Crossing the Verrazano Bridge, a stunning experience as every mile of this invigorating New York life-experience. Marathons are more taxing mentally then physically and New York’s dynamic journey thru five diverse neighborhoods provides an evolving eclectic fan base the entire 26.2 miles of this mental marathon. Stay on pace as New York City’s vigorous animated scenery lines the streets of your mind.

Almost fifty-thousand sounds like too many runners but some how there’s plenty of space for every step. Watch out for the Queensborough Bridge at approximately 15.5 miles. It’s a hill of some significance and you want to have planned for it. As you swing left coming off the bridge Manhattan’s enthusiastic fans line the streets with Central Park just nine miles out.

The hill up and over The Queensborough Bridge has hobbled me for those nine remaining miles in four of my eight New York Marathon adventures. If your running New York prepare and plan for this hill. It is a doozy with fifteen miles in the can for any runner. In other words do plenty of edifying hill work.

The Best Marathon Advice Ever.

Just prior my latest New York Marathon I was shooting a local story receiving the best marathon advice to date from Professional Burro Racer Lynette Clemons at Leadville, Colorado’s Burro Racing Classic.

Burro Racer’s Are A Breed Apart.

Lynette advised me to run with a pace chart taped to my forearm comprised of themes for each mile. The results effortless despite being in pretty good shape I was impressed how the miles ticked by as my metal plans unfolded as planned even at The Queensborough Bridge. I don’t underestimate the synergy of accumulated knowledge after seven prior efforts in New York the course was memorized.

If your running your first marathon, make it New York. I believe the lottery for a number begins in May so this year is out. A year is the time-frame you’ll need. Memorize hills and training routes. Stretch and train with vigor. On race day keep your feet dry in and around water stations and be ready for the Queensborough Bridge. Drink all the water in your cup at every mile and delight in the scenery and the global neighborhood support.

Running, cycling, skiing wherever you find that groove with nature you’ll discover terrain memorization builds dynamic visualization assets and the more remembered the more effortless your efforts evolve towards that edifying effortlessness called living life.

Work or play just keep doing what you love and love what your doing and everyday shines. When I was forced to live in a tent I recall thinking. “You’ve always wondered about living in a tent. Here’s your opportunity.” I might still be in that tent if I wasn’t arrested for camping while “Homeless” on land my taxes supported for twenty years.

Just as losing ones car opened new roads, losing ones home has opened countless doors and prove unimaginably liberating.

Seems I was shackled to money.


Do You Have Time For Cycling?

Do you have time for cycling? Because cycling has time for you. The Bicycle is life’s only real Time Machine. If you have prior history with cycleology.org you’ll be privy to my profound respect for cycling and it’s innumerable life fulfilling beneficial advantages.

Do you seek a slower, more efficient and effervescent life? Escape the accelerated aging of capitalisms automobile life-trap intentionally designed to harness your entire life within capitalisms metastasizing grip.

Electric Bicycles only make commuting by bicycle more practical and affordable with no automobile related expenses holding you down. Just you, your bicycle and the wide-open road of your newly fulfilled cycling lifestyle. Cycling rejuvenated my life starting in 2008 and I’ve yet to experience any downside.

This could be a taste of your new commute with a life-cycle change.

Stunning New Section Of Clear Creek Trail Opens In Golden, Colorado.

Today I am blessed to live with Golden, Colorado’s weather yet I’ve commuted by bicycle in Boston, Vermont, Pennsylvania, DC, Belfast, Auckland, Evergreen, New Hampshire and Bangkok in every weather pattern imaginable reveling in every blue sky, star-lit, full-moon, hot, cold, snowy, wet, dry, humid and perfect mile, day and night.

With a plethora of these dynamic cycling trails just outside my door I’m continually taunted. Just coming off a stunning full-moon cycle this week in Golden with fall in the air.

For a pure high-speed workout these concrete beauties can’t be outpaced.

These concreted gems are very addicting and provide consistent aerobic rhythms.

So try a bicycle if you looking for a true chainge of pace in this ride called life. Your bicycle will relink your life with mother natures amazingness. The amazingness that provides us all life moment to moment, day to day, year to year. So get out there not an experience your life as mother nature intended. In complete unison and harmony with nature not matter your preferred surface.

Trails this smooth lends themselves to a higher tire pressure. At max psi I can barely feel the earth, almost hydroplaning on air with these high speed weapons.

A Neighborhood Rollercoaster Ride Testing Schwalbe’s G-One Speed TLE’s Cornering Capabilities.

Check out this Electric Bicycle Information for a A Pedal Out The Door. 2021’s e-bikes are practically motorcycles with impressive range and top-speeds. Even the finest electric bicycle or three will be appreciably cheaper then a new Tesla. Bicycles are as close to carbon-free mechanized transport on earth as you’ll get. OK possibly a skateboard? A skateboard with 29-inch wheels and a seat.

The Bicycle is undoubtedly humanities most significant, ingenious, practical, efficient, cost-effective, common-sense, life-affirming, utterly enjoyable methodology for human transport. The automobile will kill your soul first then your body with every mile your ass spends growing roots to capitalism rolling coffin enslaving you to Exxon Mobile and the other demonic corporations raping this planet for an extra billion dollars.

Profit now supersedes human life in 2021. This is a fact. America has been desensitized to reality by the bullshit of advertising. Advertising tells you; you need your shit overnight when most needs are a bicycle ride away in a country addicted to the steroids’ of automobile-consumerism. Advertising has infected, polluted and destroyed America’s sense of itself. Everyone want’s to be someone else and their selling it to you. Advertising, Big-Oil, the corporatization of journalism and constant collision with The Military Industrial Complex have made for humanities most dangerous bedfellows.

Cycling is the ultimate diversion from today’s accumulating circus against the difficult truth’s and realities of the new climate-life we have all brought upon ourselves in one form of culpability or another. We have been condition to ignore the power Mother Nature has over our very existence here.

Nuclear Selective Ignorance.

Decades of selectively ignoring life’s realities, the results of capitalisms madness and the resulting viral purging consumerism is vacuuming up American Society. We are in an intellectual pot-hole where people are proud of their selective-ignorance. It only required a madman as president to unleash this long cultivated and pent up selective-ignorance.

Ride a bicycle it will change your life in a stream of new ways you’ll embrace on every ride and help Mother Nature in the process. What’s good for Mother Nature is even better for you.

Cycling has always been the finest place I’ve found to go when I really need too go. Cycling is always there, always welcome, always enjoyable, always life-affirming and always the best thing I do every glorious day. Cycling soft-focuses your thoughts, plans and aspirations in an endless vanishing point of fascinating oxygen debt, cleansing your system and resetting your soul.


Cycling Is Now Life Threatening.

It appears humanity is going to drive of the edge of the earth with The Flat Earthers. The entire planet is under a blanket of life threatening smoke from the epidemic fires resulting from the carbon and hydro-carbons we continue spewing with our lives of selective-ignorance.

Denver, Colorado Home To The Worst Air On Earth August 8, 2021.

Cumbersome it will be to ride a bicycle with scuba tank and regulator. Forget the fins, wet suite and spear-gun. Colorado’s most precious resource The Outdoors is currently off limits.

What will it take to shake US from our selective-ignorance of the climate realities we’ve ignored for so long perpetuating our excessive lifestyles? It hit’s home everyday for me as a prep-chef touching more food every morning then many will see in their lifetimes all due to capitalisms selective-ignorance.

Does Mother Nature need to burn down every American’s home first? Because she eventually will and is well on her way in the American West. Today entire towns burning up in an instant permanently erased from this planet is becoming accepted as normal as a school shooting. American has been desensitized to death and reality by the self-delusional ignorance of capitalisms rapping of this planet and most of our souls and lives along with it.

This continued denial of the reality slapping us in the faces and asses simultaneously will kill US. American Life just drives on no matter the insanity of the consequences we are impaling ourselves with. The cult of individualism infecting this country is at fever pitch. We have become a country based on narcissism believing in nothing, knowing everything, willing to learn nothing because you know everything all the while glowingly proud of this self proclaimed stupidity.

This attitude that ignorance is best will lead to The End of The Road for humanity as I see it. Cycling heals our planet and our souls in a liberating new lifestyle that will present a whole new world and brand new life just outside your door.

Cycling Is The Most Practical and Enjoyable Form Of Mobility For Humanities Future If We’re To Have One.

I live in a “Cycling Town,” it’s Golden for cycling. Blessed with wide smooth concrete bicycle trails and lanes connecting to Denver. Three bike shops in a 3/4 mile radius. Way to many bikes on cars in this “Cycling Town” instead of butts on bikes. If I had a $14.000 custom Pinarello or Yeti I’d ride them anywhere and everywhere.

Putting your bike on a car destroys it’s soul and begs the question. Are you a cyclists or just a poser playing one in your car?

Are you’re able-bodied, consider yourself a “Cyclist” and live in and around Golden, Colorado why on this crumbling and overheating planet would you put your bicycle on your automobile to ride it? I can’t recall an occasion riding my bicycle and wishing I was in a car.

With the climate collapsing at world-class pace your bicycle should never be on your car again. Discover your new rides and adventures from home on your bicycle. I ride west to the Foothills and find an new bicycle camping adventure either bushwhacking along a stream or hitting up a campground. Sleeping under the stars with your bicycle, a jet-boil, soup, bread, coffee and oatmeal. It’s liberating and lubricating for the soul.

Having lived in many domiciles on this ride I’ve found my bicycle functioned perfectly out every door and tent flap along the way. In the past fourteen years I’ve worked as a television producer, dish-washer, house painter, rancher, prep-chef, ski-instructor, mason, carpenter, tennis-coach and pontificator; all from a bicycle.

Living without a car has never stopped me from doing anything I’ve ever needed to do. Excuses are boring. Cycling Solutions are dynamic always providing adventure and learning offering a more self-sufficient, realized and fulfilling lifestyle.

You’d be surprised where you can get to on your bicycle when your bicycle is the only option to get you where you need to go. With a few seemingly daunting work adventures behind me any ride seemed possible with a little planning. I’ve never had a bad let alone a shitty bicycle ride to work, any work.

One video gig took me from Evergreen, Colorado to Centennial airport south of Denver. I did catch a ride back home in the crew van which was Plan-B. Plan-A was a combo or cycling and light-rail to Golden then dropping down to Morrison and up the canyon to Evergreen. I was glad to have a Plan-B that day.

If you remember any of this, remember this. There is no Planet-B.

The automobile is capitalism brain and life washing tool. Our society is held captive by the automobile. Trapping our minds, souls and lifestyles in an endless loop of insanity. Alarm clock , car, job you despise, everyday for the rest of your trapped life? As Mother Nature declares war on humanity we continue killing each other for the dollar trapped in our cars everyday?

A recent documentary series on HBO “Exterminate All The Brutes” is a factual look at the tremendous terror and death disseminated by white men to date. The same descending inherited ignorance consuming US today. An ignorance of each other and our planet. “Exterminate All The Brutes” is a must see in all American grade and high schools as well as all colleges and universities that are still in the education business.

Exterminate All The Brutes factually encompasses humanities whitewashing of history and the cultured selective-ignorance’s we live with today. The circumstances of which have come to a boil as reality is no longer in charge as the virus of selective-ignorance takes an historically firm hold of humanity and Mother Nature has no choice but to protect herself from humanities long dedication too selective-ignorance. Ignorance of each other our planet and our realities. There is nothing left to ignore as ignoring and hating each other is now a self proclaimed virtue and a bizarre source of pride for many. We are a virus of selective-ignorance. We have the tools and options to do better but we continually choose to ignore them and do worser.

The greatest threat to humanity is and always has been our capacity for selective-ignorance. The results of which we are living through at an astoundingly ignorant rate. Don’t be selectively-ignorant of the bicycles power to chainge your world and world view. Get on your bicycle now. Make this simple chainge to your lifestyle. It’s a sweeping and welcome chainge you’ll never regret. It’s The Chainge you’ve been looking for.

This ride never sucks, never has, never will. Stop Procrastinating and make The Chainge You Know You Need! Your life will never be dull and regrettable again. Riding a bicycle. It’s a win for everyone and everything. Ride yours now and be part of the solution. The solution to what you may ask? Take a ride. You’ll figure it out with every ride, everyday for the rest of your new cycling life. A constant stream of life-affirming solutions in a glorious and continuous cycle of revolutionary revaluations.

Don’t make the same daily life-stagnating choices when a bicycle ride is the solution to all your life perplexing conundrums. Free your mind. Free your life. Free your soul. To truly Chainge your Lifecycle ride your Bicycle.


The Life-Affirming Bicycle Ride.

The bicycle. Be it used for $150.00 or new at $15,000. The life of a bicycle is endless thus endlessly life extending. Who amongst cyclists is not instantly transported to our youth once stepping to that pedal?

There has never been a more beneficial time to start cycling if your on the fence about possibly commuting and daily errands on a bicycle. For me the transition to a life of cycling was thrust on me. I had no choice and soon riding my bicycle everywhere was my reality and a welcome change of pace in lifestyle.

A familiar story. Lost everything but my bicycle. Found work I always wanted in cycling range. A Restaurant. These two opportunities changed, shook-up and rejuvenated my life. The rat race I would never partake in again. My bicycle has proved to be my life’s most valued resource and advisor. A simple bicycle liberated my soul allowing generations of languishing ideas to flower amongst the living again.

My bicycle not only saved me but opened my eyes to cycling’s innumerable life-affirming benefits. Cycling has no down-side. Many amongst us ponder life’s purpose? I promise you life’s purpose is too live it not psychoanalyze it. By all means pursue as much knowledge as possible. It is a bit pompous of humans to think they can understand the meaning of life; if any as many are yet to fully comprehend or accept the reality of climate-science and our life threatening impact on ourselves. Cycling is humanities only path to a rational and sustainable lifestyle if we are to survive the environmental crisis we are all facing, like it or not. As Neil DeGrasse Tyson put it. “Your beliefs are not an impediment to reality.”

Riding a bicycle daily, essentially commuting on a bicycle is singularly the most impactful impact you can have on possibly saving humanity from itself. Cycling rejuvenates everything and everyone. Cycling today is not your grandparents cycling. With Harley Davidson in the electric bicycle game cycling and other evolving forms of micro-mobility will revolutionize human transport as we witness the end of our traditional American auto-addiction. There will be no future without widespread deployment of bicycles. Be part of humanities only future on your bicycle today. It might not be too late and at least you’ll be enjoying the ride.

The bicycle is as close to a time-machine as you’ll get. It conjures up ones youth while making you younger at heart. Once you make the commitment to a cycling lifestyle you will be in that light. The light of a slower more relaxed life on your bicycle. If enough of US make this paradigm shift we might be able to save this planet for everyone’s children.

When lockdown hit our earths air and water cleared up drastically in a few weeks. Save yourself and your planet from the automobiles slovenly grasp over your health and lifestyle. Just ride a bicycle. The simplicity will be life affirming and empowering in ways you will discover with every ride. Cycling is the best way to assess life. Cycling personifies self-sufficiency, life-efficiency, practicality and common sense. Automobiles are designed too enslave you, bicycles are designed too free you.

Is there a point to all this? If you have the ability to ride a bicycle. Do it everyday. Make your bicycle your primary method of transport. It will transform your life in ways you’ve yet to imagine and beats the shit out of a life trapped in traffic and stress immersed in commercialism grasp.

The Slow Deadly Screw of Capitalisms Has Rusted American Society To It’s Core.

Try to remember the reality of Guy McPherson’s words “Nature Bats Last”. Guy McPherson is an American scientist, professor emeritus of natural resources and ecology and evolutionary biology at the University of Arizona. He is known for the idea of Near-Term Human Extinction (NTHE), a term he coined about the likelihood of human extinction by 2026 The insanity known as The January 6th Attack of the selectively-ignorant on our Capital were simply the willingly and proudly uneducated racist Americans set loose by a madman. The result of decades spent intentionally dumbing down Americans along with the simultaneous demise of journalism.

Believe it or not there was a time when commercials were not sold during local and national new broadcasts. Watch Network it explains plenty about the monetization of network news and journalism across the spectrum, all portrayed in a tremendous film with Faye Dunaway, Peter Finch and Robert Duvall, stunningly directed by Sidney Lumet.

America was great when corporations paid taxes and offered profit sharing to employees. America was get when is was unionized. America was great when American’s were educated. America will be great again when cyclists outnumber drivers.

Yes the world appears to be spinning out of our control. Seize control over your life and make the move to cycling if your circumstances permit. Or consider a change in circumstance if possible. Often shaking things up can really shake things for the better. Rather then stagnating away what remains of your life in that car deploy a bicycle. It will shake things up to your advantage. Cycling as you primary transport method will downsize your lifestyle where it needs to be. “If you can’t carry it on your bicycle you probably don’t need it.”

Today’s electric bicycles provide no excuses for you. Many all but pedal themselves and handle some hefty cargo en route. Who knows? If a sufficient number of US adopt this Cycling Lifestyle we might save our planet. Affirm your life now on a bicycle all the answers you seek are just outside that door.

Remember this. Your Bicycle is an extension of your soul. When riding your bicycle you are younger. We all feel it. It’s like an undiscovered form of dopamine triggering the younger you, the kid in all of us. Your bicycle is the only way in life to get to this place in life. Cycling is undoubtedly life’s most pleasurable method of, relaxation, meditation, contemplation and exhilaration. I highly recommend it.


A Stretching Tailwind With Some Squash.

Stretching is cycling’s finest non-mechanical component. The more I stretch the finer my ride. Never saw myself in a Yoga Class. After one class I was all in. Hot Yoga is rejuvenating. I felt ten years earlier following that first class. My lungs manipulated more oxygen. Aches and pains accumulating since childhood vanished. Hot Yoga is the best 90-minute healing workout on the planet. I met the game of squash just down the road.

Discovered the squash game one October when forced to the treadmill in blizzard snows while preparing for a run thru New York’s five boroughs. The Squash Pro introduced herself out of the blue. Stuck a racquet in my hand. Years of tennis behind me squash odd a first. Picking up the rhythms and geometric synergies I was addicted to solo-squash in twenty minutes. Squash with two people is more about picking up the ball. Solo-squash never stops. Ninety minutes of live Pearl Jam and solo-squash. A revolutionary fitness experience for me. The aerobic factor, comingling a slow-motion dance of reaching, stretching, lunging all blending into a graceful mind-game of stamina, geometry, music and a tiny rubber ball. If racquet sports are of interest check it out. It’s a serious three dimensional workout experience.

Ran that marathon smoother then prior efforts. Returned home playing solo-squash everyday till spring. Not running a step since November. In April encountered an old favorite. A fifteen mile loop. Twelve minutes vanished. Solo-squash and hot-yoga were the keys to this effortless run. Squash embellishes cycling as well making you stronger in ways you won’t imagine without playing the game. Keeping in mind yoga studios are easier to find then squash courts and cycling is everywhere for free.

Hot Yoga and squash unbudgeable today yet the benefits follow my life’s cycle. A treadmill previously despised and a blizzard exposed too me these flexible fitness options. PS: A treadmill will make your running faster and stronger.


Forget The Zombies. Selective Ignorance Is The Virus Killing US.

If you enjoy life and cycling as you know it get out and enjoy every moment you have for there won’t be many more as you know it. As a significant number of US continue to intentionally unmoor ourselves from reality human extinction looms large. American’s ignore everything that matters in life starting with life.

We have killed everyone who stood for peace and human kindness to date in this country. We believe Oswald killed Kennedy. Anyone who’s seen one episode of Law and Order knows the Oswald story is shit on a stick. The Warren Commission report might as well have been written on toilet paper. I love the zig zagging bullet story and the 1963 photo-shop Life Magazine cover. Essentially we believe everything we are feed to believe. We have been zombified by capitalism. How else do we explain the extinction of all humanities accumulated facts?

We have developed a country of greed driven, self-involved willingly brain-bleached morons. American exceptionalism is fueled on selective-ignorance. In a few hundred years we have destroyed the entire planet and continue ignoring this fact. Deny it all you like. We allowed capitalist to lead us down the road of infinite growth. The infinite growth of selective-ignorance.

If you don’t enjoy what’s left of nature today, you’ll miss it even more tomorrow. Colorado skies will fill with smoke again this summer. Excessive UV and ozone off the charts as the new normal. Safest to ride before and after sunlight most of last summer. Essentially the entire planet was on fire last summer. The truth is humanity is going backwards. White men have essentially had control of this planet since day one and white men destroyed the entire planet primarily spearheaded by the American Exceptionalism plaguing US since about 1492.

Not American’s yet but profoundly white with ignorance and willing to kill everyone and everything in their path to lay claim to what many today ignorantly call Our Country. We kill mothers and babies with drones like clock-work everyday with our hard earned tax dollars and never concern ourselves with this collusion in these taxpayer sanctioned murders. Like it or not if you pay taxes in America you are a war criminal. I know it’s so easy to pretend otherwise. Did the Rockies will today?

Capitalisms Is Blinding US.

If there’s money in it American’s will walk around with their heads up their asses. This is how you amass more money then you need with your head and soul up your ass. Ain’t that America. You and Me. Ain’t that America. Something too see? Little pink houses full of morons. For Gods sake capitalism just did a hostile takeover of religion as the faithful are reborn to a new level of selective-ignorance Zeus couldn’t understand.

Yes I do love it here on this planet. So much so I always speak the truth in an effort to wake US from this selective state of complete fucking stupidity. Capitalistic American Greed and the selective-ignorance fueling it will destroy all of humanity soon. We just don’t seem to give a shit about each other anymore. Pathetic we are with our American Exceptionalism.

We are exceptionally ignorant with our ignorance today, taking ignorance to an exceptionally ignorant level of ignorance where ignorance is engrained in our every thought making US even more ignorant then we thought possible on this new found quest for even greater ignorance. If you think about it it’s easy to ignore all this.

Banks, lawyers and a wife picked my bones of all materialism twenty years ago. I looked to my bicycle and never looked back. Ride a bicycle as much as possible if you know what’s good for you. The futures uncertain and the end is always near you might as well enjoy every ride you can with the time we have left.

With this level of accelerating selective-ignorance the shit will hit the fan in the blink of your eye. Almost like a drone-strike on your home from a capitalist invader selling democracy with a free bomb. Yes in the blink of some child’s eye.

The truth hurts and the more we ignore the pain of our truth the more we torture each other. The America Ass-Light of Exceptionalism is brighter then ever yet we seem too prefer the darkening shelter of ignorance.

Keep in mind. I’m not a philosopher; I just play one on a bicycle. If your looking for clarity in a blurry world ride a bicycle as much as possible. Cycling will rejuvenate everything that is you. Cycling will free you in ways you and only you will discover on your bicycle.

If we’re to make it through this shit storm of stupidity and ignorance cycling will lead the way. Think about it. It’s not rocket science. Who believes in rocket science anyway?


A Screw Loose?

If your not cycling as part of each day and with few justifications not to ride a bicycle today you’d have to have a screw loose not to be cycling everyday. I had some screws loose for far too long until I got on a bicycle in 2008. It was a smoother transition then imagined. Once carless I had a serious look at the life I was missing out on trapped in that automobile-life. There is nothing auto about an automobile-life. Automobiles pollute your air and bleach your soul.

Today more then any time in human history riding a bicycle is the best form of mental health fitness on this planet. How much have you waisted on mind-drugs and shrinks to date? Most likely the cost of a very nice bicycle, or two. A Bicycle Ride a day keeps the shrinks at bay. Shrinks and doctors have at least one vested interest in your continued perceived issues. You do pay their bills.

Thousands of doctors played a direct role in addicting this country to OxyContin/Heroine so peddling pointless conversations seems almost ethical. I didn’t go to medical school yet I know heroine is extremely addicting. This fact somehow slipped thru the educations of thousands of doctors, countless FDA experts and a slews of ivy league politicians all lost on the back nine at Pebble Beach on the lobbyist nickel. I give our American Drug Cartel. Just Say No!

Doctors should prescribe bicycles instead of heroine. Seriously doctors should start writing prescriptions for bicycles and fresh-fruit and vegetables instead of all those drugs they are paid too push on US. The entire medical industry in the US wants you addicted to illness, any form of illness. The entire bicycle industry on this planet wants you addicted to health, fitness and sanity.

Cycling offers up more freedom and life affirming practical benefits then meets the eye. The more you ride the more you’ll see. See how easy and spectacular life can be on a bicycle. See how good you feel on a bicycle. See how you can’t believe you waited this long to get on a bicycle. See how healthy you get on a bicycle. See how clear headed you become riding a bicycle. See how much you save riding a bicycle. See how efficiently you transact your day and life on a bicycle. See how your life belongs on a bicycle.

Cycling can tighten many of life’s loose-screws. Perhaps screws you didn’t know you had. The unknown loose-screws will screw you. My unknown screws were the ones in need of tightening and only discovered once on a bicycle. Could a bicycle be the answer to your unseen loose-screws?

It’s not rocket science. Ride a bicycle everyday and see for yourself.

Once on a bicycle you will realize someone else has been loosening your screws all along. Essentially modern cycling allows you to live as a modern day hunter-gatherer thriving in a considerably more practical and soul-affirming life. A life with no loose-screws just miles of enlightened fine tuning.


A Serious Chainge Is All We Need.

A seriously challenging opportunity has arrived for US all. With corona-virus accelerating the crippling effects of capitalism on the human race by five years as our environment collapses faster then our economy. Both results of our tremendous capacity to selectively ignore what doesn’t directly support our monumentally and selectively ignorant materialism.

There’s never been more on the line for humanity. We are facing a pandemic of assorted crisis ignored by far too many of US. It’s clear that continually ignoring reality has caught up with us. Cycling can and will lead US out of this delusional state of American Exceptionalism. Our exceptional ability to selectively ignore our ignorance can not longer be ignored. This dedication to ignorance will kill US without serious change in all our lifestyles. We have and can made a difference when we choose too; collectively. If you like living on this planet do something; anything now to save it. Grab your life by the handle-bars not the hand-rails.

We need this planet plenty more then this planet needs US.

There are so many advantages to cycling I won’t bother listing them. There are no disadvantages to cycling. Cycling is the single most important thing you can do as we face our accelerating extinction resulting from our long lingering subliminal virus of selective-ignorance. Our days of ignoring the reality of reality is biting US on our asses. Unfortunately America has an excessively fat and ignorant ass today. I fear there’s way to much biting to be done before we hit any viable never endings.

If this seems on the negative side, that is the nature of the truth. It always tells the truth, Truth is the purpose of truth in the first place. If a tree falls in the forest with no witness; will the tree eventually cut and stack itself? Depends on what kind of chain-saw a tree can use. How much wood would a wood-chuck chuck? Are wood-chucks made of wood?

If your not riding a bicycle as part of your lifestyle; your missing the life-boat. I assure you life in a car is passing you sitting still. Kilo per kilo the bicycle is huminites finest and most practical conglomeration of ideas. The all encompassing practical benefits of cycling are too extensive to mention. Remember this and do not forget it. There are no disadvantages to cycling. Don’t wait for the wheel to be reinvented while life passes you. Get your ass on a bicycle now. It is the single most effective way to help yourself and humanity while having fun. Remember; there are no disadvantages to cycling.

Electric Bicycles have changed the cycling paradigm. Steroids’ for the Cycling Industry. If you have a commute for work, depending on your sense of adventure electric bicycles have tremendous and growing range of capabilities. I guarantee if you ride a bicycle, electrified or not, to and from work your attitude about work will only chainge for the better. Life in a car is death by stress filled drudgery. A life revolving around cycling? You be the judge! Procrastinate all you want once your on that bike you will never regret it.

When I’m cycling I want for nothing but a more a precise synergistic deployment between natures delicious life affirming oxygen and my will.

OK so we’re agreed. The bicycle is humanities highest achievement and we should have stopped there. The pandemic has put a new light on cycling with the industry and humanity reaping the rewards. I cycled at least twice a day over the last year witnessing the growing societal and cultural diversity in the cyclists I comingle with. It’s a real melting-pot of cultures and personalities in today’s ever expanding cycling universe. It’s a pleasure to be a part of this rolling American cultural revolution.

I’ve just cycled through five years of cycling evolution in three-hundred and sixty-five days. A synergized proliferation of personalities and cycling technology have revolutionized humanity with a simple bicycle.

The Bicycle is life’s only practical, common-sense, human powered, life-affirming mode of transport that’s always a joy-ride and has no downside. The bicycle is the perfection of perfection. Get on one now. Chainge your life before it finishes passing you in that rear-view-mirror.


As Far From Normal As Possible.

Back to normal? Most I encounter don’t want to hear or confront the truth about normal. Truth is America is sic, sick and twisted. Our state of selective-ignorance just ignored ten more of our fellow Americas slaughtered. A grocery store; this time.

I was at Columbine High five minutes after the call went out. Working for CBS News that morning. The overwhelming state of absolute terror on the faces of all those parents still vivid. That was 1999 and nothing changed not even after babies were slaughtered at Sandy Hook.

Boulder will change nothing as America moves on to the next shooting, fitting it in their conciseness between March Madness and the fake boarder crisis. The only change comes to the growing list of victims and their families. Are you willing to wait for this type of change to effect your friends and family?

The destructive synergy of American’s long selective-ignorance comingled with the champion of trumping ignorance further polluted our already toxic society unleashing the debilitating forces of hate on anyone not white with more ferocity then our selective-ignorance has tolerated to date.

We kill babies and bomb hospitals in Yemen with our tax dollars every day in line at the Starbucks drive-thru.

We are a murder based culture and society. One of the Columbine shooters parents worked for Lockeed Martin possible on the same weapons’ systems killing the Yemenis babies with your tax-dollars today. My Dad makes bombs that kill foreign babies! What’s your Dad do?

Video games are now the recruiting tools of the Military Industrial Complex streamed directly too your children in your living rooms. Ain’t that America? The Defense Department owns the NFL at this point. Just ask Pat Tillman.

Georgia just outlawed voting for Black American’s. Over half a million fellow American’s dead due to our trump-card of selective-ignorance. American’s have embraced this selective-ignorance for centuries now and the dangers of this constant ignorance has created our bewildering state of what we like to refer to as Normal.

Don’t know about you? Normal scares the shit our of me. I don’t want to go back there. Do you? Do something. Do anything? Think about thinking more? That’s not normal. Just look around at normal.

Is normal; normal for you? Because it’s killing me.


Classic Cycling Films During Today’s Content Drought.

If you haven’t seen Breaking Away after watching this trailer you will. Buy or rent Breaking Away on YouTube. It’s a film you might want too own. I feel great every-time I watch this one.

A Definitive Cycling Cinema-Classic. Breaking Away.

I feel Breaking Away stands alone in the Cycling-Cinema Genre. Next, Bicycle Thieves, this Vittorio De Sica 1948 post world classic spins a father and son’s tale tracking down a stolen bike. It’s gem and a great wat to brush up on your Italian. Bicycle Thieves, is a weighty film in the Italian Neo-realist film movement and just one of the genres and Vittorio De Sica’s many stunning films.

Bicycle Thieves, this Vittorio De Sica 1948 post war classic spins the tale of a stolen bike.

As for other films from the past. Marathon Man, Nazi’s, Diamonds, A Dentists and A Runner. Laurence Olivier and Dustin Hoffman star in a THRILLER you will watch again if you dare.

Marathon Man, Nazi’s, Diamonds, A Dentists and a runner. Is It Safe Yet?

Stunning cinematography just one of this films highlights, Where The Rivers Flow North, shot in Vermont’s Northern Kingdom, a cedar-oil farmer VS an electric dam claiming eminent-domain over his family land. Rip Torn, Michael J. Fox with Tantoo Cardinal, all proffer classic interpretations in once in a life-time roles. Rip Torn stands alone with his mammoth portrayal of Noel Lord.

Where The Rivers Flow North. A beautiful film and story.

Don’t Get Between This Man And His Bike.

Can’t forget this one. Pee Wee’s Big Adventure, another classical story of Man and Bicycle.

Boy And Bicycle 1965 Ridley Scott, yes Blade Runner Ridley Scott. This is his first films.

Boy And Bicycle 1965 Ridley Scott

A teenage boy skips school, spends the day riding through town and a deserted beach on his bicycle, his mind wanders imagining he is the only person in the world.

Hope you enjoy these for the first time, second or third and so on.
