Twelve Steps (er Thirteen)

  1. We admitted we are powerless over Work - that our lives had become unfocused.
  2. Came to believe that a power greater than Shimano (Campy) could restore us to sanity.
  3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of Cycling as we understood It.
  4. Made a searching and fearless inventory of our tools.
  5. Admitted to non-cyclists, to ourselves, and to another cyclist the exact nature of our wrongs.
  6. Were entirely ready to have Cycling remove all these defects of character.
  7. Humbly asked Cycling to remove our shortcomings.
  8. Make a list of all persons we had met, and became willing to teach cycling to them all.
  9. Made direct attempts to teach cycling to our families, except when to do so would injure them or others.
  10. Continued to take personal inventory and when we were at work promptly left to go cycling.
  11. Sought through riding and cycle maintanence to improve our conscious contact with Cycling as we understood It, praying only for knowledge of It's will for us and the power to carry that out.
  12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to non-cyclists, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
  13. Amendment - Contemplated the shaving of our legs, at least once a season...
What, you're offended?
Bite me.
