Everyone who knows me in real live life (or even on Facebook) has heard me complaining about how hot it has been this summer. I like Seattle for its year round cycling weather (as long as you don’t mind getting wet) but its been over 80 entirely too much this summer! I am very much looking forward for the cooler weather of Autumn!
But I don’t like everything about the new season… Continue reading
Folks it has been a VERY long and VERY fun weekend, even with a bit a bad stuff mixed in. This weekend was a milestone birthday for my gorgeous bride, and it was important to me that it was memorable! Looking back as I write this, I think it was! Continue reading
This was a bit of a unique book for me. First off, it was a book, NOT an eBook. I have a very few authors that I still read in paper, since nowadays I prefer the ease and convenience of a Kindle. However, this one didn’t come as an eBook. I was intrigued enough by the subject to buy it though, as it was about 2 kids, fresh out of high school, who rode bikes from Santa Rosa California to Seattle WA.
Yes, I know people ride between CA and WA everyday. My friend Sarah did it in stellar form this summer. Oh, did I forget to mention this was in 1909…. Continue reading
I have spent many a night in Spokane over the last 5 years or so. Before I left the Mighty P, and when I was with the Holy P, I was sent over here to train folks in our eastern Washington offices. Now that I am back with the Mighty P, this is my 3rd trip over here to do the same. I would say, though, this evening was different from the norm…. Continue reading
Anyone who reads my blog regularly knows how much I love the Northwest, both Washington and Oregon. The mountains, ocean beaches, trees, and greenness (no I don’t know if that is a word, but I’m going with it!) are some of my favorite things. But to be fair, there is a another part of Washington that I rarely mention… Continue reading
I’ve been going through a bit of a blogging dry spell lately. I think being busy with real life stuff, and therefore being off the bike more than I have in years, has resulted in a lot lest saddle time. Now this may not seem like a big deal, but my best thinking time, be it for bloggage or work projects, comes when I am sitting and pedaling the bike! Makes me wonder where exactly my brains really are….
However, yesterday, why taking the Mom-in-law in search of a new recliner, I discovered a new place that finally jarred my head in gear! It made me realize, at least up here in Seattle, we have actively embraced the Cycling Culture! Continue reading
Folks, a word of warning here. I am going to do something I don’t normally do, I am going to stereotype a group of people. Now the group of people in question are men, so, since I am part of this group, I feel ok doing so.
Remember, as always, the opinions of this page are mine and mine alone, and I never try to annoy or offend (OK maybe sometimes I do to a particula rperson or two, but NOT this time.) So read on if you’d like! Continue reading
