Just found out that the 2009 MS Bike Ride has been moved from July to August and it's not going to work out for me to ride this year because of another commitment. I'm viewing this news as a challenge to myself to "stay in the saddle" as they say and continue riding as much as I can this summer.
The Dolce deserves time out on the road and I'm going to give it to her! I'm planning on switching to clip less pedals, so that will provide for some interesting rides out on the roads. I'll definitely start off on the Loveland bike trail with the clip less pedals, then at least when I fall, I don't risk falling into oncoming vehicle traffic!
My employer, Local 12, is having a team again this year for the ride and it is a great event to participate in if anyone is interested. Please send me an email and I can hook you up with the team captain for more details.
They say Spring is just around the corner, and I have to admit, I can't wait for the warmer temperatures & the chance to get back to some outdoor activities. Here's to hoping those temps get here sooner, rather than later!
