Annual Birthday Ride

For the last 8 years I have been riding my age on my birthday. Well, not on my birthday, as I spend that day with my family. This is not always an easy task as I am a January baby and live in the northeast. Today the weather broke and it was a balmy mid 30's. I was a bit concerned as I have not been on my bike in 2 weeks due to our deep freeze. I am also getting older and the miles are adding up. I was coming up 2 miles short so I changed my route only to add that 1 extra good luck mile I was not intending to do. It gives me a great sense of accomplishment in something I truly enjoy. I hope these photos help depict this beautiful ride. Horses wearing winter coats, 2 of my favorite beautiful greeting dogs, general beautiful scenery, cows that love to have their pictures taken, grand old oak tree, chickens and old farm house, and my mileage with that 1 extra good luck mile.

I Think this says it all

I just celebrated another birthday. I hope to get out this week and ride my age.

My Bday gifts say it all.

1st Ride of 2010

I had to get out for my customary January 1st ride. It was a balmy 34 degrees, cloudy, with little wind. Streets still wet from yesterdays snow, but easily ridable. It was a short 16 mi loop which has always been a favorite. Very few cars on the road, making the ride more enjoyable. This is the time were I begin to develop my Winter Fur and my Seasonal Affective Disorder intensifies. I look forward to my annual birthday ride and hope the weather cooperates. Winter is tough for cycling and the trike really excels at this time.
