Another First!


Saturday, May 07, 2011

Had a TERRIFIC day yesterday mixing it up with work, cycling and jogging. Biked to my day job, then over to my office to see a client privately and then up to our local park with a great trail along the Chenango River: Otsiningo Park. Off the bike, changed into shorts & T-shirt and then off for a 5K jog! Biked home for a total of 20 miles for the day, bringing this cycling season's totals up to 197 miles.

So what's the "first"...? Got a call from home, needed a prescription picked up. Well there really wasn't a convenient place to lock up my bike so...what the heck: Use the Drive Thru! Felt kinda weird yet kinda proud taking my place in line just like any other vehicle! The clerk didn't blink, we took care of business easy peasy! Love treating my bike just like any other vehicle! :-)

Oh and HEY EVERYONE: May is National BIKE MONTH! Woo hoo!

Here's a link for ya:

Get out there and ride yourselves a BIKE this weekend!

Heading out with the bike club today to do some roadside clean up. We have "Adopted" a stretch of road which happens to be near my house. I always thought that would be a cool thing to do for our local SparkPeople team...have a sign posted indicating a certain road was taken care of by SparkPeople.com...get folks wondering "what's SparkPeople.com?"

Afterward, heading out to Whitney Point for a 20 mile ride. No biggie, but always enjoyable up that way...! Just hope the rain holds off till we get back!

Looks like EXCELLENT sunny skies and upper 60s for our Mother's Day...make it special everyone!

    The bike club I belong to cleaned its two mile stretch of road last week. It was actually fun! But I was a little disturbed by the things we found on the side of the road.

Happy bike month!

    What a great day and such a neat idea about the road clean up!

We have monsoon like rain forecasted for the whole weekend. It looks like my bike dreams are going to be on the stationary kind. Darn it! Oh well, maybe next weekend. It's all good!

    Enjoy your ride today! The Triclub has a "transitions" meeting and then we're riding afterwards.. IDK if we're going to stick to River Rd or do some Route 12.
