• June 23, 2022 - first ride of the day
    24 Jun 2022

    It's 10:30 a.m. and the weather looks great for a ride. I have a destination in mind, so I set out and am successful at my destination. Sold six more spots on the wheel! Made a few more stops and head back into town. I'm crossing the bridge at the 401 and make it to the light, where I wait to cross and then to cross the other way. A white van drives by honking and people waving at me. I think to myself, who do I know with a van like that, but have no clue. They pull in to A & W so I figure to go through the drive thru and see who they might be. The driver opens the passenger side window, I check, and I don't know who it is. I ask if they know me, and they say no but they love what I am doing. I leave them a couple of flyers and I am on my way again. Then, as I am biking on another side street, the same van pulls up beside me and gives me a donation......my first ever "drive by" donation. Whoever you are, please know that you made my day!!! Thank you so much for caring!

    Tonight, after a very hot day, I headed down to the Cheese Museum to meet up with other Safe Cycle Ingersoll people. Unfortunately, the heat must have kept them home (or they may have other reasons), but there was only Ben Lampkin and I. Since there were only the two of us, we opted to do a longer ride, and managed 17.6 kilometers before we called it a day.

    This morning I went out for a ride to check out a trail for our group ride in August. I think I have found where we will be riding so check the link in this blog, and if you are interested in joining us, send me a message and we will see how many people we can get together....grow our little friends group a bit each year!

    On another note......European vacation is booked.....YAY!

    What a gorgeous day to be out on the bike today. After lunch I set out to do a training ride for my Great Cycle Challenge ride in August. I managed to do 17 kilometers before heading home again. Chatted with a few people, stopped at DQ and indulged in a chocolate dipped cone (lol) and then headed back up the hill to home.

    Forty percent chance of rain at 6:00 p.m. means there is a 60% chance that it won't rain, right? Then at 7:00 p.m. the percentage rises to 70% chance of rain, so that's a different story of course! But at 6:15 p.m. the sun is still shining, so what do the weather people really know for sure? I head out to join the Safe Cycling group and we head off for a ride around town, but the dark clouds are starting to form so we head back to the museum and go our separate ways. Ben and I made it to the complex before the rain started, so we hung out there until the storm sort of passed, and then headed for home. Did we get wet? Well, yes we did, but once you are a bit wet, it's not so bad. You get home, dry off the wheels and get into dry clothes....ready to do it again on another day!

  • June 8, 2022 afternoon ride - Part 1
    8 Jun 2022

    This morning I was out in the car but this afternoon was perfect weather for biking, so went to the bank on my bike. On the way, I picked up a couple more donations to the current fundraiser. Then on the way home, my RELIVE video stayed on pause, but I can assure you, I did bike up the hill and am back home again. Think I will head out for another ride as the weather is perfect for cycling today!
