Girls Gone Riding April Challenge

Monday, April 01, 2013

I'm on the Girls Gone Riding team which is a fun bicycling team on SparkPeople. This month, our challenge is to ride our bikes at least a little bit every day. With all the cold weather we have been having, this was just the challenge I needed. I've taken my "single" touring bike down to Tennessee as part of our move, so the only bike I have available to ride here in Illinois is our tandem. I'm normally the stoker, but it's good for me to be able to captain the tandem as well.

Today, April 1, I took the tandem out for a ride by myself. I only went up and down the street a couple times to check the seat adjustments I've made for me to ride captain. It felt weird, but great at the same time. I'll probably go out again this afternoon when it warms up to 35 degrees!

Ah ...."springtime" in Chicagoland!

    Good for you Kay! I'm so proud of you for braving the elements. I'm sure I'd find some reason to stay inside in the nice comfy condo. Especially now that you have it all decorated so nicely.

Spring CAN'T be long now! emoticon My best friends daughter and family live in suburban Chicago and she says she is DONE with winter. She's got a thriving business there but I know she longs for her parent's winter sunshine. Growing up in Iowa...I was TOTALLY at my rope's end by February...I just couldn't tolerate those gray nasty days. But that first whiff of spring was just the BEST.

Hugs to you! emoticon emoticon And here's a big wish for spring to hurry up and get there!

    Whenever I see a person alone on a tandem, I assume they have an imaginary friend. I hope yours is full of encouraging words.
