OK well there have been rumors, and you might have had a sneaking suspicion. But now it’s official. I am in fact “holier than you.” This is according to the Holier Than You Blog which featured this photo of me from the other day waiting for the Caltrain at San Jose station in my new orange rain pants. So saddle up for sanctimony! Amp up the attitude. Prepare for piousness! My cycle pants have been known to blind a man at forty paces. It’s not going to be pretty.
Joking very much aside, I was trapped on a Highway 17 ‘express’ bus the other morning that broke down near the Summit for an hour. (thank you Arnold Schwarzenegger for cutting transit funds drastically while leaving highway funding totally intact! sweeet.) Anyway, silver lining is that I got to meet Richard Masoner who runs the famous and well respected Cycleicio.us blog. A fascinating guy- he works at a software company by day and maintains his blog a lot more frequently than I do. He also does product reviews for Momentum Magazine, the magazine for self-propelled people.
If you’re in the Bay Area this Friday I will be talking at a SPUR brown bag lunch with Bruce Appleyard so come by and be blinded by my dazzling wit, or *far* more likely by my eye piercing rainpants.
