Racking up the Miles: January 2015

Wow, it is hard to believe that we are essentially at the end of January already!!!  Seems like not that long ago there was wrapping paper, stockings, and Christmas music everywhere!  Now here it is, the end of the month, taxes are already filed and I am counting up the miles for the first month of the year!

I am tuckered!

Once again, a week makes a major difference in the life of our hero.  Last weekend was wet and miserable.  A major windstorm blew through and knocked over our little free library, and it was just flat wet and cold!

I’m Heading for the Beach!

One of my favorite things to do each year are organized Century rides.  I like the just show up with full water bottles, and someone else is in charge of planning the route, making it easy to follow, providing food/liquid at specific stops, and if I ever flat give up, there is a van to haul my sorry old but home.  Continue reading “I’m Heading for the Beach!”
