I've always wanted to ride my bike up the hill

Took the opportunity to ride from Wallingford to Tinmouth VT. As in life, so on a bike; slow and steady.

Taking the numbers for granted.

What numbers do you take for granted? For some it's weight. Lucky them they can eat whatever they want and not gain weight.

For me it's being able to go out for a bike ride and put out 25 plus miles easy in less than two hours. No questions asked. Done.

And then I heard about the fat guy riding across America. His goal is to someday ride 25 miles in a day. Google him. He is real. He is riding across America.

The Changeover

With school starting comes change. Riding in the morning is limited. Not today... So I'll work some more on reclaiming the dining room. So looking forward to riding after work. A long one. Leisurely.

Where did the summer go?

It's over. The fat lady has sung the swan song. School starts today. Can't tell if the girls are happy or sad, or nervous. It would be nice if time stood still and we could all just take a breath.

What is so great about riding before dawn?

Every ride is like Christmas. As the morning unfolds you are right there receiving the gift of the new day.

Time To Reclaim The Dining Room

It's time to be finished and done with this project. Spent some time yesterday on some of the more difficult pieces only to find out they were not so bad. Art mimicking life as usual.

Chasing the Dawn

I went out for a slow ride. Take it easy, Patty, was the mantra. It worked until I hit route 126, then all biking heck broke loose. As I found myself foaming at the mouth, clipping along at 22 plus miles an hour. Having a GPS is good and bad. For now I know exactly how fast I'm going and what it takes to get achieve the next personal record.

I'm an old woman. This competitive spirit was suppose to be gone years ago. Strangely, I'm truly only competing against myself.
