Penn will not be posting anything this week. Not much bicycling news has happened to Penn. With Val’s patience and help, he made one of his bikes winter ready: changing the peddles, changing the tires, oiling the chain—pedestrian mechanical feats, he knows. But he was proud of himself, proud to have bicycle grease on his paper handling hands. Penn will return next week with a blog entry. He has been spending his spare time riding in Val’s garage, not writing or thinking bicycles, just sweating and spinning to the directions of cycling videos (which have been enjoyable).
