I would like to take this opportunity to share with you a new innovation in bicycling that my company has been working on. You may have heard of my company. It is Microsoft. Microsoft has realized that the bicycle computer market is responsible for millions of dollars of lost income for not entering the bicycle computer market. We realize that inferior companys dominate the bicycle computer market releasing inferior products that many times fail to produce accurate info for the rider. Therefore, it is my pleasure to introduce to you the first Microsoft bicycle computer. It will do the normal things that your cycling computer already does like speed, odomoeter, and those types of things, but it will also house a cell phone for emergencies, with an emergency button that will allow emergency personel to find you if you have an accident on your bike. It also has a GPS mapping system on the system. The compuer uses the Windows CE operating system, and is powered by small generator that fits on the outside of the hub, and yet is minimal in weight. For more information on this computer, visit the Microsoft web site.
Thanks Bill, I can now die happy and life fulfilled... (nm)Akirasho

A few weeks ago my family and I participated in the Tour de Wyoming, a six day supported tour of the Medicine Bow Basin in northern Wyoming. My wife and I have done many a mile in our day, but we weren't exactly sure how well the kids would hold up to days of 60, 60, 90, rest, 90, and 60 miles. Well, we shouldn't have worried. Rebecca, age 12, rode every mile and Lucas, age 5 rode all of the 60 mile days and half of the 90 mile days. When Lucas and his Mom sagged on the longer days, I resized the stoker position and we absolutely flew through the second half of the ride. It was a blistering hot week, with minimum noon time temperatures in the high 90s. It was a great week, camping on school athletic fields and hanging out with generally great folks.
