Here's a well written personal memoir of a life awheel from a retired Purdue University prof (I think) published in the Lafayette IN paper. As many of you will know, I'm from Indianapolis so cycling news from the Hoosier State interests me. And the writer of this piece, Mark Levinthal, went to college in Waltham, MA, where Tamar went to undergraduate school.
No doubt Levinthal is preaching to the cycling choir through my blog page. We've heard the sermon before; it nonetheless serves to lift the soul in these sodden gray months.
