Holy Crap! Suburban Assault Turns Five

Obey Dallas Texas

When I started this blog five years ago, I wasn’t sure that I would keep up with it. As I’ve said before, even five years doesn’t seem like much compared to some of the other great bike blogs out there – and I’m humbled by them. Now, with over 745 posts, I still love doing this.

I’m not sure why, but readership continues to stick with me. It’s also truly amazing when I get recognized on the street as the Suburban Assault guy. I deeply thank those who have taken the time to stop by and visit this site. I’m still trying to figure out a niche for this blog to help it stand out among all the others. For now, I’ll continue posting Hump Day Pics as well as plenty of interesting, bike related things. As long as I’m passionate about bicycling, I’ll keep posting here.

Also, over the years, I’ve grown as a cyclist. I started as a slow-rolling goof, who discovered a passion for exploring his city by bike. Now, I’m a slow-rolling, practical cyclist who commutes to work, advocates for cycling and enjoys teaching as a League Cycling Instructor. I could not be happier.

Again, thank you for following and reading Suburban Assault.

Suburban Assault Turns Four

When I started this blog four years (and one month) ago, I wasn’t sure that I would keep up with it. As I’ve said before, even four years doesn’t seem like much compared to some of the other great bike blogs out there – and I’m humbled by them. Now, with over 635 posts, I still love doing this.

I’m not sure why, but readership continues to climb. I deeply thank those who have taken the time to stop by and visit this site. I’m still trying to figure out a niche for this blog to help it stand out among all the others. For now, I’ll continue posting Hump Day Pics as well as plenty of interesting, bike related things.

I tend to not look at my birthday as a day of celebration, but more one of reflection. It’s not as if I feel like I’ve accomplished anything profoundly significant in my life – just enough to feel really good about it. I’m thankful every day for that.

I truly appreciate all that is good – my family, my health, my friends, my craft, my home and the greatness of bicycling.

Here are some keepsakes from the day:

I don’t typically like to acknowledge my birthday. However, today is a pretty special one since it lands on such an interesting date: 11/11/11. For a while, I’ve been racking my brain to figure out what I should do to recognize (most likely) this midpoint of my life.

People have suggested that I throw a big party or go on a trip. Even as a child, I’ve never been much of a birthday party person. Also, with the kids in school, work in overdrive and vacation funds at their lowest point, a trip will have to wait.

I’ve considered taking a long, cross-country or cross-state bike ride. For now, I’ll have to settle for across town.

Some folks would assume that a big gift would be in order. I’m a simple man and I have, pretty much, everything I need.

Instead, I’ll do what makes me happy. I’ll start with a good cup of coffee and then spend some time with my wife and kids, enjoying the good fortune of having them in my life.

Have a good day.
