Hi, I’m Bud Baker. I’m 64 years old and have ridden a bicycle an average of 100 miles a week for the last 11 years. That’s why this blog is mostly about cycling. My user ID in online cycling forums I frequent (I don’t hang out in nearly as many these days) has for a long time been Bud Bent. Bent is a slang term for recumbent, the type of bicycles I ride.
Since non-cyclists have no idea what “bent” means, when I joined my first online lung cancer forum, I decided I needed a different ID. I was thinking that a lung cancer diagnosis and being given a 50/50 chance of surviving it qualifies you to call yourself uneasy, and settled on the name Uneasy Rider as my lung cancer forums ID. My lung cancer story is in this blog, if you follow it from December, 2007 to May, 2008. There are also posts about my second hobby, crappie fishing.
Below are some photos of me. I have turned off comments on the blog. The battle with spammers was just too much. Look me up on facebook if you’d like to contact me. Have a good ride.
