I am working on ridding the world of grumpy old men, one at a time, starting with myself. 

As a well-rounded man in his late fifties, with a past that includes a sedentary lifestyle, a number of unhealthy habits, and little previous physical effort, I am now a silver cyclist, trundling around on a bike trying to get into better shape. 

This is a record of how I am doing. I hope you enjoy my ramblings.
