Snakes may taste like chicken, but they certainly don't smell like chicken. Couldn't get past the smell to even cook it.

We were on the tandem and leaving on a small group ride when a squirrel tried to run across the road. He made the bad decision to stop in the road and we had no where to go, so ran over him. I was sad to run over him, but glad we didn't have Sweet 16s so he couldn't run through the wheel. That would have been ugly.

Yikes, DDORN! And, I forgot about the squirrel last week that almost caused me to wreck. I almost had to hit him, but that would have probably made me fall. Anyway, he barely got out of my way!

Speaking of nature freaking one out...had a doe & fawn grazing quietly alongside the road as I was whizzing down a hill last year and they flipped out and literally lept OVER ME! My cycling buddy was glad I was in the lead as she would have freaked! :-)

Oh! Thanks for mentioning nature, DDORN. We saw a rabbit and a snake on the side of the road. Last week, during our 12 miler, we passed a medium sized tortoise crossing the road...and a snake lying out catching some sun! That kind of freaked my friend out, but I LOVED it! emoticon

It's such a TERRIFIC feeling when we realize the tremendous DISTANCES we can cover on our bikes...and far greater than the distance involved is the immersing our ourselves into the great outdoors and all that Mother Nature has to offer!

Woo hoo to YOU!! :-)

Congratulations on your new achievement! It's the stepping stone like this that add the fuel for even greater distances. Keep moving, you're doing great!

Life's Journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting 'Holy Sh!t What a Ride!'

Good for you! I have found spinning helps me keep my "seat" over the winter. And riding with someone always helps me ride farther.

I rode 34 miles today! Amazing!!! My longest ride before was only 20 miles - and that was over a year ago! In fact, I've only been on my bike once in the past several months - and that was last week for 12 miles. But, I have done 4-5 spinning classes in the past 8 weeks or so. And, I've been running.

Anyway, a friend invited me to go riding on a hike & bike trail and it was GORGEOUS!!! I'm so excited and can't wait for our long ride next week - I hope to do at least 40!
