Three Cycling Amigos

Okay, this is gonna sound strange and self-indulgent, but only because it is. Hang on tight.

Howard has mentioned on these pages before that he's a member (on double-secret probation) at, which is a great site for bicyclists to track their mileage throughout the year, compare themselves to 19,000 other cyclists doing same, to get to know each other a bit in the forums, and occasionally to meet.

Three of the more eccentric and obnoxious personalities at BikeJournal are Pansy Palmetto, Sioux Geonz, and your very own Howard.

Now try following this: Sioux, who lives in Illinois, is in San Francisco for the weekend for some sort of convention. Pansy lives in a nearby city. So Pansy and Sioux decide to meet, which they do. And while doing lunch, they notice that they are on Howard Street. So they ask a passerby to take their photo, which she does. But while the photo is taken, they both take a bite of fudge. Fudge? You see, BikeJournal had a Shoot Cupid Challenge to ride at least 400 outdoor miles by Valentine's Day, which all three of us successfully did. The prize? Yup, fudge. Hence, the photo.

But then Howard got all smart-assed and photoshopped his own photo into the San Francisco street scene. So now from left to right you see Pansy, Sioux... and Howard.

Like I said -- strange and self-indulgent. But also fun. AND sweet.

Wow, Howard, you're half the man I thought you'd be. Eat more fudge, man!

With the big rain coat on, Howard looks like a flasher.
