Before I get started I would like to apologize to ALL of my English teachers. Although the following blog may have you thinking otherwise and by the end of this most of you will hardly believe that I pulled off high A’s in English, yes, you did do your job.
I have a horrible habit of bastardizing the English language (sometimes even making up words if I can’t find one that fits my mood), missing…and yet sometimes over using…punctuation, taking “side bars”, making “mental notes”, and in general making English teachers cringe worldwide. This being said, I will be tearing a page from Mr. Jack Kerouac’s “On the Road” and write in a stream of consciousness (or unconsciousness depending if the kids have kept me up at night).
I will be writing about how it feels to be a “third wheel” in the world of road cycling. I have no doubt this won’t be a literary classic but I do hope it gives you some information, a bit of entertainment, and a possibly a little giggle.
Third wheelingly yours,
