About me


Bad helmet hair or disheveled weirdo?  You decide.

I’m Paul Poletes.  I’m a father, husband, proud foreign service officer, and avid cyclist.  I started this blog to give me an excuse to write more, because writing is something I love doing.  What’s the blog about?  Mostly cycling, travel, and food, along with anything else I feel like writing about.

My other passion (and only hobby besides collecting Hummel figurines) is cycling.  In 2012, out of shape and getting fat, I bought a new bike.  Then I got another, and another, and another (and sold one along the way).  Now my idea of fun is finding steep hills and then trying to ride up them on a bicycle.

Love the blog?  Hate it?  Got an enemy you want me to smear online?  Let me know here.
