The Dude Abides. (A play on a line from, and an homage to, the film The Big Lebowski.) I'm not THE Dude, I'm just a dude who bikes. Thus, A Dude Abikes. I write about my life as an overweight, middle-aged male who rides a bike around 100 miles/week in Austin, Texas, not owning a car, taking walks, doing daily yoga, writing this blog and a book, and attempting to improve my diet. Other topics vary from popular culture, politics, spirituality (specifically Buddhism), interviews, and more. These posts often relate to biking but are applicable to anyone with challenges trying to get healthier. Thanks for reading!
