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.
KEEP RIDING!!!

Good job Daddy! Love the shirts. I think they are your motto.

Well done! I've just completed my first 24 hour event in the far north of Scotland, "The Strathpuffer", and I'm 65 now so you'll have to keep going for a bit yet!!
