About McShorty

He started out riding trails on his CT 26" mountain bike eventually moving to a real mountain bike and added road riding to his menu over the last few years. He would like to scale the barricades put before him at times, but hasn't always succeeded!

Riding ‘naked’

Being a numbers nut (among other kinds of nut – I confess to being!) I would like to challenge MIT riders to rediscover the joy of riding for the sake of riding. I refer you to the article posted in RBR (http://www.roadbikerider.com/current-newsletter) and I quote – “Riding was and is supposed to be fun.  Low-tech training can help keep it that way for some of us.”

I was talking to Roger LaRiviere yesterday at the bike shop. He was riding with Arne when he was hit by the truck. It made me realize again how lucky I am to be able to do what I do.
