Questions to Me from Sheree

What do you most enjoy about blogging?

The idea of being able to share my thoughts and others from around the world read them is pretty cool. I have always enjoyed writing very much. I appreciate the kind feedback I receive from others. I also am thoroughly pleased when I am able to help someone who is just starting out in cycling.

What’s your favorite sport and why?

Cycling . . . obviously, but I am a sports enthusiast all around. I did not start cycling until a few years ago, and probably would not have been able to sooner due to family duties and priorities, but it is absolutely the best sport I have ever participated in . . . and I have participated in many, many sports. Why? It is all you. You are the engine. You can buy an expensive bike and light equipment, but it still boils down to your effort and training.

Where in France would you most like to visit and why?

Where to begin . . . if I am forced to pick, I would have to say an unknown village in the mountain passes of southern France. I would like to stay with Tammy in a tiny, little hotel or hostel and just ride my bike, converse with the locals, and soak it all in. This would not be bad at all if it happened to be during the Tour either.

Which meal would you choose for your last supper?

My wife’s kraut, sausage, and potato dish! And since I do not ever eat dessert . . . I would like a whole peanut butter pie!

Name five people who you’d like to join you for your last supper?

My wife, my kids, my son’s fiance’, and my parents . . . boring I know, but it is true.
