My passion for long-distance bicycling began back in 1980 when I completed my first century. In 1981 I completed my first double-century. Ten years later, after many more "doubles", a 700-mile qualifier race for Race Across America, organizing the 220-mile, one-day Race Across Wisconsin, and doing a solo tour across America, I walked away from the sport. This blog is about my return to cycling twenty years later, and my plan to break a Wisconsin state record. Thank God for second chances.

Where is that sun?
Today's weathman promised temperatures up to 52 degrees, with some partly-sunny skies this afternoon. It got up to 49 degrees, and the sun never did come out to visit. I really don't like these kind of days, cold and damp that is. But I just try and make the best of them until the sun shows up and begins to warm the old bones. I can't complain though - I am thankful that I was able to get in a 60-mile ride, along with some hills in the Northern Kettle Moraine.
