Some of the riders I know are now challenging me to gear up for a four-day, 276 mile ride from Ground Zero in NYC to Boston next year. I'm not sure I am mentally ready for that challenge just yet. Trying to develop a winter riding plan because work interfers with training. LOL

Thanks for the support folks. See you on the road

That is fantastic. I haven't pulled off anything like that yet. I'm just going to be excited when I manage to actually keep up with the group ride. Thankfully its no drop so at least they don't abandon me in Sunday morning traffic.

It's a great feeling, isn't? There's something wonderful about setting a goal, challenging your body, and then making that goal.

Congratulations!

I have a "Bike to Work" poster on my office door with the annotation "If I can do it, anyone can." I consider myself a bike-commuting missionary: it's my duty to try to convert people to getting out of their cars at least once a week. I think it's important for those of us who are not super-fit to spread the word about fitness and healthy living because, as you said, if I can do it, so can you.

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

Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.

Wow! Way to go!

Tracy, Illinois, CST

Man sacrifices his health in order to make money.

Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.

And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present;

The result being that he does not live in the present or the future;
he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.
~The Dalai Lama

Just a bit of bragging here. On 9/11 I completed a 55 mile charity ride from Warwick, RI to Boston, MA ... my first half century ride. Granted we had checkpoints with water and snacks enroute and a lunch break, but I'm still chuffed. If I can do it, so can you! Remember that folks.
