One year anniversary ride

One year anniversary ride

One year ago I returned to cycling with the purchase of a new bike for commuting. I enjoyed bikes when I was in my teens, but had probably ridden less than 100 miles in the last 35 years. I was nearly 240 lbs a year ago; I’m down to 210 now. More important, I'm more fit and am enjoying a more active lifestyle.

During the last year I’ve ridden more than 3000 miles. I’m going to celebrate by riding at least 80 miles tomorrow and will try for a century if everything goes well.

Thanks to all my friends here at BF, it's been great.

When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
