Little Warmer Today, Going for 30 Miles on the Bike

Wednesday, November 03, 2010      2 comments

Well, today looks to be a little warmer, in the 50s, so I think I'll try to knock off half the miles I have left to reach my goal for the year. Yesterday I rode myself to within exactly 60 miles of 2708 (the amount of miles for this year that wi... Read more

Chilly Commute on the Bicycle Today--Again!

Tuesday, November 02, 2010      1 comments

Wow, 30 degrees on a bicycle feels awfully chilly this time of year. Coming out of the winter it doesn't feel so bad but going into the winter I kept thinking to myself, "What are you thinking, bro!" I may commute one or two more days but this w... Read more

Season's Over but Still Going for Goal

Monday, November 01, 2010      0 comments

My cycling season usually runs from January to October. I start off in Jan and Feb doing indoor, bike-trainer exercises and then hit the road in March as soon as the temps go above 35 and the snow and ice melts away. This year one of my goals fo... Read more

Teaching a Class Today

Saturday, October 30, 2010      1 comments

I have the privilege of teaching a class today on what's called the intertestamental period, that is, the period between the close of the Old Testament and the opening of the New Testament. The period lasts for about 350 years and is one of the ... Read more

On the Road Again

Thursday, October 28, 2010      1 comments

Well it's cold--about 35 degrees this morning--and the wind is still blowing--about a 20 mph WNW wind--but it's not raining and so I'm on the road again. I'll probably only get 15-20 miles in today but I'm so thankful for that and hoping that I ... Read more

Another Blustery Day

Wednesday, October 27, 2010      1 comments

Yesterday the wind in the Twin Cities was unbelievable and it didn't let up all night. It's still blowing like mad, which is kind of fun to watch, but makes it impossible for me to bike. So I'll thank God for another day of rest and try to get l... Read more

With cold, wind, and rain it will be hard to ride this week

Tuesday, October 26, 2010      1 comments

I want so badly to get 99 more miles in on the road this year! That would mean that I've ridden my bike for a total of 5000 miles in the last two years. But the problem is that it's cold, windy, and raining--and might even be snowing a bit--this... Read more

Enjoying a day off

Monday, October 25, 2010      1 comments

It's been a good but very busy week for me (my week goes from Tuesday to Sunday, with Monday off). I'm so tired but I get to do a bunch of nothing today and for that I'm very grateful to the Lord! So I look forward to laying around, watching a f... Read more

I'm So Tired!

Sunday, October 24, 2010      1 comments

I rarely get this tired. I'm literally having to strain to keep my eyes open as I write this! I've been at a men's retreat this weekend with our church which was great, but all the activity has made me very, very tired. So off I go to la l... Read more

Back from the Retreat

Saturday, October 23, 2010      0 comments

We had a great men's retreat this weekend, we talked about the nature and implications of holiness for our lives and then dedicated ourselves to loving Jesus because he first loved us. I feel so inspired to live all my days for the glory of Chri... Read more

I'm hanging out in Longville MN today at our church's annual men's retreat. I'll be teaching tonight on the nature and practice of holiness, one of my favorite subjects, and I'm very excited about what the Lord might do in and through us this we... Read more

Riding the Paul Bunyan Trail Today

I'm heading up to central Minnesota today for our church's men's retreat and I'm going to take some time today to ride on the longest paved trail in the state: the Paul Bunyan which stretches for 110 miles. I'll only be riding a stretch of about... Read more

Well on my way to 2708 miles on the bike this year!

Wednesday, October 20, 2010      0 comments

My new goal for the year is to put in 2708 miles for this year because that would mean I've done an even 5000 miles in the last two years. I was able to get 35 miles in today and it looks like I'll be able to get about 65 in tomorrow which will ... Read more

I Surpassed the 2,500 Mile Mark on My Bike!!!

Tuesday, October 19, 2010      2 comments

For the last two years my goal has been to ride my bike for 2500 miles. Last year I only made it to 2292 but this year I did it--by the grace of God, I did it! I was so excited when my odometer hit 2500 today that I shouted out loud--boy a... Read more

Lunch Ideas, anyone?

Monday, October 18, 2010      0 comments

So I've been commuting on my bike lately and all I have to carry my stuff is a backpack. Perhaps someday I'll buy a little trailer but for now it's just the backpack. The one issue I've been having with this is bringing food for lunch because it... Read more
