I'm still cycling but switched to a recumbent trike a couple of years ago. A childhood back injury, a year of successfully fighting breast cancer, and old age finally caught up with me. I still have the uprights and ride them for short distances but everything else is done on the Catrike. I even installed an electric assist on it so I can continue to ride hills and longer distances.

After 15 years of volunteer bike work with the local MetroPark and 6 years of volunteer work with GOBA (Great Ohio Bike Adventure) I've turned all my volunteer positions over to the younger cyclists and I just ride. Most riding is done with the Dayton Cycling Club and other rides in the area. One I've done the past couple years and enjoy is the Bourbon Country Burn in Lexington, KY. Most of my riding is still done with my long-time biking friends, Richard and John.

There was no particular reason or event that caused me to stop posting. I'm sure it was just getting busy with other activities. I do post on FB. If anyone is there look me up - Beverly Stanley Owens.
Thanks for replying, I had a feeling you might Prairie-Dog, if I gave you a mention. I remembered that you had told me you were spending time with grandchildren, and that you had your battle with cancer a few years back. I'm certain your club considers you a cyclist emeritus member, its a well earned place.

Now if I can summon up @stapfam, my job here will be complete. Any chance you have a lead on @Tom Bombadil?
