Halfway There

With the summer in full swing I’ve been neglecting my blog here. At the halfway point through the year we are at 2,195.1 miles. My goal of 3,000 miles for the year seems like an impossibility at this point. We shall see though. If there is one thing that is keeping me in the car … Continue reading

Week 18 Mileage

I feel like I drove to the moon and back this weekend. I was lucky enough to be able to volunteer at the Idyllwild Spring Challenge. Rick from The Bike Shop volunteered me and I wasn’t about to turn it down. Idyllwild is about 50 miles from Temecula and is beautiful this time of year. … Continue reading

No more trying to merge through two lanes of traffic just to make a left turn into Harveston. You can access this bridge directly from … Continue reading

Final Voyage

Week 14 Mileage

30 Days of Biking Day 2

April is 30 Days of Biking month. Go ride a bike! Truck…we don’t need no stinking truck! We made a quick run to The Bike Shop today to pick up a new roof rack. Found a lonely piece of firewood on the way back and grabbed a couple gallons of milk. Cargo haul! We also … Continue reading
