B Strong Ride – complete for now

Wow – We did it. Rode the 69 mile mountain loop. Our team, Coach Karl’s Chain Gang, was able to raise over $6000 to fight cancer in Boulder and Colorado. Here is a picture of most of the team after the ride. There was a great after ride celebration at Celestial Seasonings. Lots of great […]

Last of July

Wow, this month has passed quickly, with not as much riding. Thank you heat wave that covers the middle of the US. While in Colorado earlier, I was hopeful that I could find some pedals and ride with the Venus de Miles club last weekend. But, NO. . . They could not be found. ARGH. […]

Sunday was a great day for a ride, but I forgot to start the timer on my bike computer until 5 miles into the ride. I thought I had started the timer, but NO! So, the ride was really 37.5 miles. We saw a LIVE snake…. all of us gave it a wide berth. It […]
