Can’t ride? Think about cycling.

Sunday, October 14th, 2007

Having ticked “Ride a century” off the list last week, I’ve begun thinking about what’s next. Thinking about cycling is something I can do when off the bike, and Sunday is my usual rest day. (Although, if I owned one of these, I’d move my rest day to another day. Donations accepted. Remember, Christmas is […]

Sir Tim Berners-Lee developed the programs and protocols that became the World Wide Web. He posted the very first web site on August 9, 1991.

Baby’s first TNUA

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2007

During the TNUA tonight, I turned over 200 miles on the Portland. Everyone from Full Moon Vista asked how I like it. My standard reply? “I LOVE this bike.” It was really great to be back on the TNUA tonight. I’ve missed this ride tremendously during the past six months. There are people I see […]
