Reporting from inside the monastery (yes, this is allowed and no I'm not breaking any rules):

I'm here to throw you a bone. All is well here. This blog is going through revision and you will certainly be notified of such changes. In the meantime, the things I've been devoting my time to are below:

All things cycling:
Lots of reading. On the bookshelf:

Until next time,
