Click here for information on a pulse
monitor I built which does what the $800+ Polar heart rate monitors &
interfaces do: gives realtime pulse display, flashes on each systole and
downloads and analyzes the data in realtime, saving it in an ASCII file on
flash memory or disk to be read by graphing or other programs. Took about
1.5-2 days of assembler programming and some inexpensive parts lying
around the apartment.

The AIDS Rides are popular but expensive, with over half of
raised funds going to administrative expenses, and a minimum $1400 in
donations required from the rider and sponsors combined. They could do
a great service to all by revising this policy.
The Florida AIDS Ride has split from the management of the other AIDS
Rides and is now called the Florida Red Ribbon Ride; it still goes from
Ft. Lauderdale to Orlando. According to the
April 1998 Log Cabin
Newsletter this was due to disagreements with the way the other AIDS
Rides were done, including the fact that most of the funds raised went to
administrative expenses and paying high salaries for AIDS Ride officials,
instead of going to organizations fighting AIDS.
The others (Boston-NY, Philly-DC, Chicago, Texas, California) are
still run by Tanqueray AIDS Rides Network

The background is an embossed (depth 3) and gamma-corrected snapshot of
the 2 1/2 (not 3) mile hill on R.I. Rte. 3 in Arcadia, Rhode Island, April
1, 1982, shortly after noon. More info on the Boston
1982 page in the "Three Mile Hill"/"ascending out of Hope Valley"
paragraph. This shoulderless section of four-lane road has since been
upgraded to two lanes with a nice wide shoulder; the section farther up
the hill remained four lanes with a good shoulder which was designated a
bike route in the late 1990's.

April 4, 2004 (day & date anniversary of the ride back from my second
ride to Boston in 1982 with the wintry weather on the way back and for
much of that Spring blamed on a volcanic eruption).
