Those of you who regularly follow The Early Morning Cyclist no doubt have noticed that my contributions have been far from regular of late. There are various reasons for my absence. First, and foremost, I haven’t had anything new to share. Having said what I felt I needed to, I hate the idea of simply stringing words together for no reason. I’ve also been very focused on that thing I “do,” which is teach and make art, and write about art and artists. If you enjoy the drawings I occasionally use to illustrate The Early Morning Cyclist, I invite you to visit Just Sketching, where I share urban sketches, techniques for location sketching, and the random tip or two. I also write for Drawing Attention, the official worldwide magazine of Urban Sketchers, and I sincerely invite you to pick up a pen and any scrap of paper and come join us out in the real world.

Anyway, as usual I have taken the long way round getting to my point, which is that The Early Morning Cyclist is taking a hiatus. Riding bicycles and appreciating the design and engineering of this simple mode of transportation is and continues to be a very important part of my life. If you pass a bearded cyclist out on the road atop a pink French bike, sporting a plaid cycling cap and eschewing Lycra, raise a hand in greeting – there’s a good chance it’ll be me. And no worries, I’ll definitely wave back.

    Thanks for letting us know, and your writing and photography skills will be missed in the meantime. Enjoy your well-earned break!

    Enjoy the Hiatus, it is well deserved. You are an inspiration to a guy who was assaulted and is recovering from a mild TBI. Cheers, Rod
