Still happily pedaling on : ) I now have over 5,000 miles on my bicycle since I gave up my car at the New Belgium Tour de Fat in LA almost 2 years ago! Hit that milestone near “Rosie the Riveter” park so OF COURSE I had to stop for a cheesy photo-op ; ) Check out that bike rack! Happy Biking : )



Happy Thursday. Here’s to beer and bikes.

Cheers!!! HOPPY Biking : )

Two dogs are seen guarding a bicycle in Nanjing, capital of southern China’s Guangxi Province. According to owner Luo Ganren, the pair are protective of him and his possessions. My bike has no lock, and I never worry it would be stolen, thanks to my two puppies. They will guard the bike by holding the bars until they see me back.

This is so excellent.  Yes.

Cool! I need to teach my dog to do this : )

First All-Female LCI Training a Huge Success

Last month I was one of the lucky ladies to be part of the 1st all-female League of American Bicyclists - League Cycling Instructor (LCI) training. The League caught up with Melissa Balmer (the woman behind who spearheaded the campaign to make this seminar happen) and a couple of my LCI classmates who are already doing some great stuff. Thanks to Melissa’s work, enough money was raised to put on the course which we were all granted scholarships for. Now it’s time to get my butt in gear and give back to my community by teaching bicycle education and encouraging others to get out on their bikes and ride. 

Oh yeah…still car-free and still pedaling on : )
