That is what I like about cycling and the local pros and high level riders. They are all good people, willing to share their stories, techniques, equipment likes and dislikes and in this case, humility. Dan has always been a great ambassador to Stlbiking.com offering up his equipment, providing expert opinion. He shows up in town occasionally to teach a spinning class. He is a quality guy. Cycling is one of the sports where you can duplicate easily the equipment used by world class athletes and build your own little world of magnificence. Most of the racers are approachable. Collect many bikes but not as many as Basler, for Gawds sake.
I suppose I am not so disagreeing with Blunt on many things including the MO Health net initiative that was passed bi-partisan. MO HealthNet focuses on prevention and wellness instead of only sickness and treatment, empowers individuals to be participants in their own health care decisions, and improves health. Blunt "gets" the benefits of health and fitness and incents those who get off their ass and take care of business, wellness. Bravo Matt Blunt and Peter Kinder for stepping up and bringing one of the largest emulative health events to the state, then back it up with their continuous support. This is authentic and they need to be commended for this.
I let my wife know yesterday that I would not be available from Friday forward. I have several business meetings this weekend.
