What Happened to the Biking Blog?

Hi Everyone.  No, I didn't drop off the face of the Earth... perhaps the face of the biking world, but not the face of the Earth.  I've just been doing a miserable job of getting back on my bike in recent days.  There are never enough hours in the day, and I've been prioritizing other items over biking.  Since the last post on this blog, my daughter has taken up much of my previously free time, and has taken a strong #1 priority over all else.  In addition, in those remaining spare moments I've written two physics books (second was just published last week), and am excited to report that child #2 should be arriving in about two months.

I'm hoping that as the kids get older I can attach a child carrier to my street bike and get back into biking, but for now, family is taking precedence.  There might even be some opportunities to get in sporadic rides this summer, but I don't see the daily multi-hour rides coming up again in the near future, a trade I'm more than willing to make for more time with my family.

Best wishes to all on a tremendous holiday season!
