Baby Steps

Well, back to the beginning. My focus has NOT been on cycling for the past several months. Instead we were working on selling two houses and buying one. This also involved moving from one side of town to the other. Fortunately, the seller of the house we moved to was also a friend and realtor. He was able to give us the time to sell the two places so we could afford the one.

We’ve been in the new house since Nov 30 and I’m finally feeling like I can take some time to cycle again.  The weather has been great for refilling our depleted reservoirs but not so great for riding a bike. I was able to get out one day last week and today.  The legs are doing OK but where the old body rests on the saddle-not so much.

Looking ahead, I have four months to toughen up. The forecast is for dry days into next week. It appears I’ll be doing short rides for awhile to get saddle ready then working on distance.

Just recently found two more folks in the neighborhood who cycle. Now we just need to get our schedules to jive.




female, married, in love, beautiful grown daughters, great and large extended family spread all over the US, enjoying my life, my favorite place to be is outside (unless its cold and wet).
