So I’ve had this goal for a long time – not a dream, exactly because it would be more of a nightmare, but a goal – and that’s to run a marathon before I’m 50. So, without going into exactly how old I am, let’s just say that it’s time to get moving. And the […]

Couples Riding

So, I’ve been writing a lot about wanting to learn how to ride places on my own without needing someone to ride with me. I have to be honest and admit there were two reasons for my mild rants. One was that I truly do want to learn to be comfortable riding by myself. I […]

Wow! It’s been a long time since I’ve written. Frankly, it’s been a pretty long time since I’ve ridden, either – I mean real riding, not just back and forth to work. I’d planned a long hard ride for the Labor Day Weekend but at the absolute last second (I was actually on the road […]

It’s countdown time to my next big riding weekend. Just a little over two weeks to go. I’m getting excited. I’m also getting in shape! A few weeks ago, I got rid of a lease car I’d been carrying around my neck for four years. Its outrageous payment and accompanying insurance was like an albatross […]

I know it’s blazing hot outside and it’s still high summer but I’m thinking about fall and the inaugural weekend of that season of cool nights, changing colors, and perfect rides. That’s right. Labor Day is coming soon, folks and this Lady Biker has big travel plans. I have some friends who did the Hoka […]

It’s so hot. I mean the kind of heat that actually has weight, that makes the air so think you feel like you part it with your body when you’re riding. The kind of heat that squeezes all the energy out of you like you squeeze water out of sponge.It’s the kind of heat that […]

So the vacation is over and it’s time for the long ride home from Mustang Island to Irving. Honey was too tired to hit all my planned courthouses on the way down but he really came through headed north again so let’s hit it! First was the Aransas County courthouse in Rockport, Texas. Don’t even […]

It’s the second (and last, alas) full day of our vacation at the beach. I’m one of those anomalous women who is happy in a tent, even one a quarter of a mile away from the bathroom! A tent on the beach is like a DQ Blizzard with no calories…something you really only expect to […]

It’s vacation time! Nowadays, that means a long road trip with overnight camping, beach, and lots of courthouses. I’m in heaven! I’ve taken a few days off here and there this year but they were all so I could work someplace else – not exactly a vacation. This is the real deal. The original plan […]

So, I told you that at the end of my courthouse ride Saturday July 2nd, I (meaning Honey) discovered I had somehow lost the bearing from Coco’s rear wheel. This, it turns out, is a very bad thing. I have no idea when it came apart. I wish I could say I suddenly realized the […]
