I Stand Corrected!

Corrected, not by any of my faithful readers, (either one of you) but by my reading. I have been misusing the term 'bike' and its relatives. I was just informed while reading some of Sheldon Brown's insightful articles on bicycles (see a link to his wisdom to the right titled "My Favorite Bike Info site" ). According to him " Bikers ride Harleys, people who ride bicycles are cyclists." I don't ride a Harley and neither does Mark so guess a misdirected relationship has to be broken and a new one begun. Sooo... welcome Mark as my 'cyclist' buddy! No longer bikers. Anyway I'll try to do better with my use of terms. We'll see.
