Get On Your Bike and Ride!

I am truly sorry that it has been so long since I last posted. Life has gotten extremely busy the last couple of weeks. Injuries, training, work, and kids can make it difficult to get one's blogging done. Whodda thunk it?!

I will have a complete summary of my final week of training, the 10k, and 46mi bike ride coming soon, but before that I have a very important subject to talk about.May is National Bike Month, and this week is National Bike to Work Week. I would encourage everyone, as much as is possible given distance, weather, etc., to bike to their respective jobs. If you can't bike to work, go for a ride in the evenings with a special friend or by yourself. Go for a ride in a park or through the city. Whatever you do just get out and ride; you will never believe how great it can feel.

If you are interested, check out the League of American Bicyclists website; it's full of great information. If your bike has fallen into disrepair, take it to your local bike shop. For a reasonable fee they can get most bikes up and moving again.

This is the year, now is the time, to get back on your bike and go for a ride! Have fun.
