An Apology

The year I spent bicycling was the culmination of a dream which dominated most of my adult life. The planning and execution of this ride was–by far–the most difficult thing I have ever attempted.

As you can imagine, this type of an undertaking requires complete devotion to the objective; to the goal. In my case, this was an obsession. The Bike Trip became more important to me than anything else in my life.

In the course of the ride, I made choices that were hurtful to my wife. Were I given the chance to live this segment of my life over, I honestly do not know if I would do things differently; nor, if I even could. But Heidi did not deserve the immense grief that I caused her, and for that I am sorry.
