On a whim I decided to check out my blog stats and to my delight I see that I have developed an international audience. Other than the USA, I'd like to extend a warm welcome to my cycling brothers and sisters in Turkey, The Netherlands, Great Britain, Canada, Germany, Mexico, New Zealand, and all the other places I never expected anyone to be reading Flashblog. I would be delighted if some of you would leave a comment, who you are and where you are from. The power of the Internet is an awesome thing and to think I might be inspiring someone on the other side of the world is heady indeed. It really is.
