Loved reading about Matt Baumeister's touring. In fact, that's what I started off thinking I would go do, at least until I tried racing, but it's still on the list.
And Mom and I made today's sports page...
For the record, it's probably not good to do a phone interview with a cold, because if I were and institutional designer, instead of an instructional, one, I just don't know what I'd come up with. :D
In any case, I hope both articles get folks to thinking about their bikes and what they could do beyond letting them gather dust in the garage.
