    So, does your wife still have a job? 😉

      @Dan – She does. Yes. He’s a good-natured guy. And she’s very good at what she does.

    Here’s a question you might consider addressing on the podcast:

    I know Robot’s creed is “Safety 3rd!” While I haven’t consciously accepted this approach, it seems functionally operational, especially on a mountain bike. My road fitness allows me to attain speeds that are far beyond my technical ability to remain in control of how my bike and body move through space. And in Michigan there are trees, which do retain their ability to avoid moving in space, even when struck by a flying or falling middle aged mountain biker.

    Now to the question: It seems that I always fall on my right side. Does this mean that I am particularly poor at managing the bike when I might be more likely to fall off to the right? Or that in midair I am adjusting, cat-like, to ensure that my precious left side avoids contact with the ground? What gives? Do you notice that you fall on one side more than the other? And what might we do about this besides stay on the couch and eat cheese puffs?

      @John – I love it. Will definitely take this up on the podcast. Also, I always fall, or at least try to fall, on my right side. Not sure why, but I suspect it has something to do with being left foot forward on the bike (I’m right footed), so I’m more likely to sit back into my right pedal when things go pear-shaped. More to come!!
