Great job! Sometimes it's really enjoyable to be out there on a large scale organized ride, seeing all the cyclists and enjoying our sport!

Pain is weakness leaving the body.

How do you eat an elephant?

I will not fail.

Congratulations! I don't do a lot of organized rides, but the ones I do are fun. You get to meet local riders & ride with them a bit. Most important - you're surrounded by people who love what you love. That's a powerful feeling.

Love God. Love your neighbor. Change the world. It really is that simple.

Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.

Yup, you got the bug now. I do love organized rides. Besides seeing some great new areas, you meet the nicest people.

Don is right, bad accidents are actually uncommon. I do hope she recovers quickly.

Yeah, you're catching the bug! Woo hoo!

But OUCH to the lady who wrecked! I'm counting my blessings as our club rides RARELY have such mishaps. I'd be curious to hear how it happened if you ever find out.

I just wrote a long post about my first ride which I did yesterday. It was amazing! And, what a feeling of accomplishment! I really do enjoy biking more than running!!!

The best part: finishing!

The worst: a lady who rode with my friend's husband had a wreck at mile 3 and had to be taken away on an ambulance. The good news: she "only" broke her shoulder, though I'm not sure about any rode rash, etc... I saw her lying on the stretcher and was able to talk with her and she did have at least one bloody knuckle. Her jacket was also ripped where her shoulder hit the pavement and I'm not sure if that was scraped up or not.

I'm excited to be getting into this wonderful sport a little more officially now!!
