    This new area is really nice!

    Well last week I posted about the girl giving encouragement.. Well today it happened again. I actually ended up finishing the ride with her and chatting while biking. I am sure we will cross paths again as she lives rather close. It is just awesome how friendly the ladies are... I can't wait to get my wife out on a ride so she can see also. I have only passed one guy and he waved... I think it's gonna be a good place!

    I see lots of wimmins on the road during my morning rides. I'm surprised at how many are out there. But I pretty much just mind my own.

    Two days ago. I'm riding and from out of nowhere this girl startles me. I had no idea there was someone on my wheel. So I clicked the pic!....The road was a gentle descent so I held 25 mph before hitting the big hill. Once we hit the hill, she tried to drop me!

    I continued up the hill while she turned off onto another street. She shouted, "hope I didn't break your camera!".

    doesn't look like it caused any ill effects to the camera!

    nor would she get kicked out of bed for eating crackers...

    Hehehe! I'm not sure if she remembers but I ran into her about a year ago. I knew she was going to try from our last encounter. Back then she displayed a competitive nature, so I was expecting her to try. Maybe next time sweetie!

    Seems like nice friendly ladies who ride in the area would be a great incentive to get the wife riding more. I fail to see a down side to this situation.

    You should work on the sales pitch a bit first though

    Riding with the ladies

    I don't think I would want to let my wife know if the ladies were freindly out there, I think she might get mad. Also Mr Beanz you must be a talented man for being able to photograph the ladies while still riding forward. ECB1
