He's not been good for a while now but its sad it looks like his cycling
days are over. A cruel twist for someone that loves cycling so much.

Damn.

Why can't this type of stuff strike down the arsonists who started the
Esperanza fire rather than the good guys? Clearly there is no God.

Respect to a real cyclist. Don't give in ever. Still here after was
told it was unlikely I would live another 3 months. NEVER, EVER GIVE
IN!

Or, he/she/it doesn't dole out rewards as we'd like. At least, not in
this lifetime.

Sheldon deserves rewards.

Wow, I had no idea (I didn't follow Sheldon's blogs). However, one of
Sheldon's pictures from this year's Interbike did strike me as a bit
peculiar, that of his rental "motorized" vehicle. At the time I just
thought he sprained/broke his leg, and needed some ambulatory
assistance.

If you're reading this Sheldon, I want you to know that more than
anyone else, you have been responsible for getting me back on the bike
after a long hiatus (off my fat ass), and rekindling my interest in
bikes once again. It is indeed a perverse universe which we live that
you, of all people would be diagnosed and afflicted with MS. Good
wishes to you and your family.

BUMMER!

I recently started riding again this spring after a 5 year break due to
health issues. Since I was a little kid, cycling has always been one of
those simple joys in life and something that keeps me inspired and
energized.

Good luck Sheldon, your web site has brought me a lot of chuckles plus
great technical information. I admire the amount of effort that you've
put into it. Thanks.

Chas.

Add these electrons to those wishing Sheldon well and thanking him for
enriching our world. I expect he'll continue to do so for many more
years yet.

Since taking up cycling about 2 years ago at the ripe old age of 56 I've come to
rely on Sheldon's site. The Internet certainly has made the world a smaller
place. I feel a sense of sadness and wish Sheldon all the best and hope he and
his family find the strenth and support from the many friends they certainly
must have.

Sheldon and his website have been an important part of my bicycling
education. I wish him only the best and my thoughts go out to him and
his family.
