A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, there was a cyclist who so dominated us that he became known simply as "Da Boss". Canal rides, New Albany rides, 100 mile century rides throughout WV, PA, GA, etc... he was da best. Work got in the way as he went from a regional EPA guy to Kasich's "Special Assistant for Environment & Energy Affairs" responsible for authoring various legislative initiatives in the Ohio legislature and while he ran 50 and 100 mile trail runs, his cycling prowess dimmed like a flame thrown into water. It was like watching Michael Jordan's final year with the Wizards. But Wait......a breakthrough......Da Boss has been named head of Ohio's EPA and has decided to rejoin the ranks of the cyclists!!!!!!!!! The last thing I want to do is create expectations or put misplaced pressure on him as he probably just wants to come out and enjoy our rides. If what I am hearing is true, Da Boss, aka Craig Butler, is returning to cycling!!!!!
Mark is a long-time cyclist who enjoys poking fun at himself but most especially at his friends. No nicknames or comments are intended to offend, accept them in the humor they are intended.
