In the News.

A couple of weeks ago, the nice folks at Bikerumor.com were generous enough to do a little piece on me and the assless bike. Tyler Benedict, the editor, followed it up with a phone interview that is currently airing on their podcast. I managed to make it through the iterview without swearing, and only took the lord’s name in vain once, which is quite a feat for a Vermont hick (by jeeze)..

Yesterday I rode my bike in to the doc’s office to get the pump taken off.  Another round down. Just three more to go.  Serious count down mode now.  The weather is really starting to give us hints that spring is coming.   Fickle though.  It’s gorgeous and sunny right now, but they’re promising rain this afternoon.  All told, though, it’s improving my outlook a ton AND reducing the weird neuropathy symptoms.  I still have to wear gloves outside to keep from tingling, while everyone else is running around in t-shirts, but at least now the gloves are WORKING!

The BIG news is that Hill and I have set a date.  We’re going to get married on June 7th in Nova Scotia.  I’d love to invite you all, but there’s only so much room on the island.  We’re going to do it quite small.  Immediate family and a few friends.  Glen Hansard, Sam Amidon, and my brother Thomas will be doing the music.  I’ll be doing the cooking (with help from my trigger men, Billy and lil’ bro Sam).  We WILL, however be having a party shortly after, here in NYC..  sort of an extended reception..  You ARE all invited to that.  I mean it.  Anyone who can make it.  Date TBD.

The orders are rolling in.  Spring is here, and folks realize that they’re going to need bikes.  Nice ones. (so get your order in soon if you want to ride it before the end of the summer!)

That’s it.

  9. I randomly found your site. I just finished treatment for ovarian cancer for the second time. I ride bikes often.

    I’ve got neuropathy in my feet. It isn’t too bad but I don’t think I’ll be taking my socks off for a while.

    You are awesome. And your legs must be super strong from riding with no seat, holy shit. I’m going to link you and follow your posts. Congrats on the wedding. I just got married while I was in treatment. It was awesome.

Just saying thanks will not just be enough, for the extraordinary lucidity in your writing. I will right away grab your rss feed to stay informed of any updates.
