I hit exactly 1000 miles for the year yesterday as I pulled into my garage. It feels good! My next task is to get used to clips on the pedals.

Just an Idea

Hello everyone...
Since we have formed this Bike Club, I  have decided to be more physically active.  Beginning this  weekend, I will ride at least 5 kms  everyday.  If any of you   would  like to join me, please let me know and  we  can make arrangements. I will supply any riding equipment needed....

I  think it would be appropriate to ride somewhere between  4:00pm and 7:00pm.  We can call it happy hour, if it will make you say yes.
I  have enclosed a photo of my bike

Last Wednesday

As I started my regular commute, my pedal was making noise but I kept going. About half way to work I heard a noise and thought, "darn! a flat!" I turned around and saw that my rack had come loose and my trunk was dragging on the sidewalk. I managed to velcro it to the seat post and start back up. The pedal was quiet by now, but wobbling a little. I got to campus and showered and headed to where I was suppposed to be conducting a workshop. Then right in front of the library, my pedal and its arm fell off the bike! I jammed it back on and did a sort of pedal-pedal-kick, pedal-pedal-kick to get to where I needed to be for the class. When I got there, the room was locked and the building manager was not expected until long after the time I was supposed to start. A custodian unlocked the door in time for me to get started about ten minutes late. Halfway through the two-hour session I was about to take a break when the fire alarm went off ... What a morning!

Great poster!
