A Good Excuse

Wow, it’s been a really really long time since I posted anything on the blog.  However, this time I think I have a good excuse.  I’m in the process of writing a book.  And while it’s been a lot of fun it is definitely using up the little bit of creative energy that I possess.

I’ve toyed with the idea of this book for years.  I actually started this blog in part to develop my writing style.  Then, about 3 months ago, the whole book seemed to unfold for me while I was on a solo ride and I knew the time was now or never.

The book will be about my cycling adventures.  It’s not about racing, doping, the life of a pro, the fall of a pro or any of the other usual topics.  This about a weekend warrior who rides his bike a lot and has had many a great adventure with friends.  My goal is to get people excited about living their life even if that does not include cycling.

I floated this idea past a couple of friends, who I knew would provide honest feedback, and they both encouraged me to go for it.  I don’t know if it will ever be published but I’m going to have fun writing it.

So for now, the blog will remain silent.  But fear not!  Once I get passed the writing stage for the book I’ll be back at it.

Until then . . .  thanks for following along and sharing my adventures.
