I caught a window!

Ladies and gents, I am not like most avid cyclists in a couple of ways. First off, I have only one bike, It is my commuter, long distancer, multi day trekker, errand runner, indoor exerciser and over all work horse. I figure I only have one butt, so I only need one bike.

I also NEVER set a mileage goal for the year. I set out to ride as often and as far as I can, but I truly don’t want to put any stress on myself for riding. It’s supposed to be enjoyable. If I set a goal, I will start berating myself if I don’t get ‘enough’ miles each month.

Book Review: Into the North Wind by Jill Homer

You know its been a long time since I did a book review post when I have NO idea what or when the last one was! (I just checked, it was back in August!) A month ago I felt the need to read a cycling book.

That was a busy 36 hours!!

I have lamented more than once, here on my friendly neighborhood blog, that Michelle and I find ourselves very busy at time. This always surprises us, as by nature we are pretty much introverted homebodies.

I can’t remember, though, a weekend that has ever been the whirlwind that this one was!  Continue reading “That was a busy 36 hours!!”

Eyes were bigger than my tummy today!

You know that old saying, especially when you were a kid. It’s a big meal, and you fill your plate with a little of everything cuz you are hungry. Then not even halfway through emptying your plate, you realized there is NO way I shoulda taken on so much….

My ride was like that today…. Continue reading “Eyes were bigger than my tummy today!”
