Do You Wonder Why We Ride?

I saw this on social media and thought I would copy it.  I don’t know who the author is, but it is appropriate. Dear loved ones, I’m sorry for making you worry everytime I climbed onto my bike. For you worry this could be my last. I want you to know that if that is … Continue reading »

Why I Have Not Been Riding and Posting as Much – Migraines.

I just want to share something. We all have struggles. I applaud all of you who have come back from health problems like heart attacks and diabetes. There are other riders out there who may be less fortunate. I am a chronic migraine sufferer. What does that mean? For bicycling it means a lot. When … Continue reading »

It Has Been Awhile but, I’m Back!

I had suffered from migraines, and the doctor put me on some medication that really didn’t agree with me and caused me to gain weight, made me want to sleep fourteen hours a day. My riding suffered, mileage went down … Continue reading »

What a Winter! Now on to Summer Biking

Unless you lived in a cave these past six months, you know that New England got hammered with record snowfall. My only saving sanity was the fact I signed up for some Compu-trainer spinning workouts. It wasn’t until April that I finally got my first ride in. I only managed one ride in April but … Continue reading »

December 31 – The Year in Review 2014

First off, I finished the year with 2,055 miles and 3 metric centuries. I was hoping for six metrics and at least one full century. Life and health got in the way. A week-long migraine which included a couple of days in the hospital. This caused me to miss two of my metrics and through … Continue reading »

The Witch of November

I know, I stole that from the Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald by Gordon Lightfoot. November is a funny month. The daylight hours are short, we’ve changed back to standard time and it seems we have more cloudy and cold days than nice bike riding days. Also some people consider this the beginning of eating … Continue reading »

October in New England

October is a transitional month. You go from the warm summer temperatures that still tease you in September, to the cooler raw temperatures that remind you that winter will soon be here. During this month you are treated to the artist’s pallet of fall colors that dot the landscape. Riding in New England in Autumn … Continue reading »
