New Look

After 10 years I've decided to give the blog a new look. The black background looked cool and all, but it was really trying on the eyes. Weĺl give this a go and see how it does.

Bogota Colombia Fixed Gear Paradise

Although completely surrounded by mountains the city of  Bogota is mostly flat. Bike routes are distributed throughout the city. A high percentage of the public commute on motorbikes, scooters, and bicycles since there are restrictions on vehicles you are only allowed a certain number of days per week to drive your car to help control the pollution. Driving in traffic seems to be uncontrolled chaos but everyone seems to flow together. Because of the amount of traffic high speeds are kept to a minimum.
I saw quite a few single speeds and some fixed gears. Pretty incredible to see almost as many motorcycles and cyclist as cars on the road.

I opened a new business about eight years ago and also started writing books and pretty much abandoned blogging. It's a leather and shoe repair which has done great and I've written five books. I finally got things under control, so I'm back blogging

Where I've been

Well I haven't been writing much since I've changed jobs. I'm back at the cigar store running things which keeps me very busy. Plus keeping up two other blogs and a web site I just run out of time. If you're into cigars check out my website miamitobaccotraders.com or my blogs letstalksmoke.blogspot.com and miamitobaccotraders.blogspot.com. Unfortunately I work too far to commute anymore. So my ride time's been seriously cut down.

Keep your eyes on the Cycle crap site, new owners with deep pockets! You're going to see a lot of cool stuff going in there. They should be loading their inventory in the coming weeks.
