On Three Wheels, Again

"Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana." -- Wallace Tripp

My riding (and writing for this space) had dropped off to nothing, or statistically close to it. I have all the usual excuses. They had a lot to do with starting a new phase of my real estate career which took more of my time, and riding instead of driving to somewhere I was going anyway (which has always been the way I got in the most riding) not being so convenient as it had been. The result being that I am in about the shape I was in a decade ago when I resumed bike commuting, and most of the progress I had made was lost.

So I'm starting over. And it happens that I have also made some changes to my velocipedic fleet. I am down to two bikes and a trike now. I have kept the 1986 Raleigh as my one "normal" bike, and my Dahon Speed TR as my touring, load-carrying, errand-running, all-purpose bike (it can go up anything, carrying everything). And I inherited another trike.
