Sorry, for my absence, things have been hectic.
“Things have been hectic” is just something you say. Obviously as a semi-professional bike blogger my life is almost cartoonishly easy. For example, today my biggest challenge was deciding which bike to ride–a challenge I’m pleased to report I met decisively:
I may be 75% Mudbunion at this point, but I’ll always love a misty spring road ride, and every pedal stroke upon this bike is pure bliss. I once scoffed when people would extol the virtues of their titanium frames, but now I know that to ride one is to feel even more coddled and sated than a tick nestled in the fleece of that lamb the Virgin Mary is carrying for some reason:

As long as you’ve got a bike you’re all set.
