The Adventures of Me and Gerard

"Know a person with time; know a bike with distance." - Old Chinese Proverb

Hello, and welcome back.  It a fine spring Sunday if ever there was one.  The sun is out, all the ladies are in their colorful dresses, it's warm, hello!  This will be the second full season of adventures for Gerard and myself.  As you may recall, I obtained Gerard, a Specialized Allez road bike, after my previous companion, Traveler, was stolen on the Lower East Side.  I would like to talk about Traveler, but even as I begin to write I am overcome with emotion and cannot.

Anyway, the past is done, and as a great man once said, only look back if that's the direction you want to go in.  And therefore I shall look forward with my now trusted friend Gerard.  Today we went on a fine adventure all through Manhattan and Brooklyn, and many choked on our dust.  To more adventure and choking!
