    Aw yes, the good ol’ days…or not so much.

    I used to stand in for my older brother on his route, up until the Day of the Oblong Gonads. I had to use his bike, since I didn’t have one, and it was way too big for me. One day, pedaling up a steep hill under load, and standing on the pedals for maximum power, the chain slipped, and I remember coasting backwards, feet dragging on the ground, until I crashed in a roadside ditch.
    Needless to say, I declined taking over the enterprise when he retired from it. Hats off to those of you who stuck it out. (Even after someone stole your bike.)
