Hi everyone! I'm a single, 40 something educator who would rather be exercising than working. I'm a biker from way back, who discovered swimming in her 20's, then discovered running in her 30's and now do all three. Yeah, I'm thinking of triathlons. Anyway, I live in the northeast, U.S. and have been known to cycle in the winter. I have a Trek mountain bike, two Cannondale road bikes, and an old Schwinn Touring bike. I want to get back into touring, but still haven't found a way to bring my German Shepherds along on the bike. They hate being left behind. I'm going to try to commute to work in the spring once a week...42 miles one way...that ought to get me in biking shape, and shake up my somewhat confined students (I teach in a prison). Presently, I train on a Kurt Kinetic trainer, when I'm not running or swimming!
Anyway, I have the summer off, so if anyone has an idea for a trip...let me know. This seems like a fun forum and I've already found some good information from you guys. Thanks!
