My blog has turned a year old. Can't believe that its been a year already. Its been fun, at times it was frustrating, but a good experience for me. I've learned a few things and improved my writing skills but am still by no means ready to quit my day job and pursue a career with such fine publications as Mountain Bike Action (fuck those guys) or Bicycling (I'm too fat for Style-Man's standards). This blog is as close as I will get to being famous (which I don't give two flying shits about, I would like to be rich though. I would love some new bikes).
I want to say thanks to the small but dedicated group of people who read my blog regularly. Without you guys I would have given up a long time ago. It nice to know that I have a group of readers here in Ontario that check in often, as well as a few in the States. Even a fellow in Italy reads my stuff regularly. Thanks everyone!
Looking back on my first year's articles makes me laugh and get angry all at the same time. It all started with the article I Love Cheap Bikes, which professed my love for affordable but capable machines. My first rant about Trail Sanitization was a fun one too. @$$holes Who Litter is on the required reading list of The Bric as well. My Cycling History was a fun one to write, reminiscing of rides in years gone by. Some of my personal favourites are Cheeseburger Fueled, Bike Magazines can Fuck Off, Helmetless Fucks, and of course, Cycling and your Nose (Snot Management). There are lots more that I'd love to list but you can find the good stuff by clicking on Rants and Good Reads in the categories column >>>>>>>>>>
I also want everyone to know that there is more to come. I'm riding more and more often, angry as fuck, and still just as fat.
The Bric...._ mountain biker, road rider, heavyweight gear abuser. Built like a brick sh*thouse. No bike is safe.
