On my bike as a kid

After 25 years in the mainframe and super-computer computer industry followed by 20 years of Microsoft PC's as a hobby, I have finally managed to leave the dark side and migrate to an iMac. It's been generally an interesting trip, fraught at times with episodes of frustration, but overall probably less than what a traveler going the other way would have to endure. I have had to abandon the tools I used to create the original site, but have found some excellent replacements, notably Kompozer. If you ever use an iMac to create your own site I highly recommend it, and it's free!  As always, since I am not an expert, holding the control key down while you press F5 gets the latest pages available, at least on Chrome, and I think the same holds for Microsoft IE.  Also, holding the control key down while you press either the "+" or "-" keys enlarges or shrinks the page. If Kompozer can do this via code I have yet to discover it.
 
Now to cycling. I am going to try to recreate the original pages in this new iMac environment. The pages on cycling trips, equipment, recumbent design etc will be fairly easy. The relative performance data on recumbent vs each other and vs trikes will be more problematic.

Also, I am hoping to ride from Osprey, Fl to Key West sometime this year. If you'd like to join me, please click on the link below entitled: "Bike Osprey To Key West". And while I no longer sea kayak, there is also a link to the"Sea Kayak to Key West" trip I and several others took in 2002.

This is a personal web site, so the stuff on family and friends will also migrate, but just has to take a back seat to the cycling stuff for now. And of course most of the original site like movies and books I like etc are now long gone. Much of the original site is still to be moved to Kompozer and so what you see here is mostly a "place holder" for the full site as I get time to migrate it.

What I ride now, and a link to a table of relative performance of these three (see Other Stuff on the site) :

Performer 700C
Performer 700C H.R.
Bacchetta Corsa
The Bacchetta Corsa
JC70 Trike
The Performer JC-70AL
