My last two bike rides on the rail trail with my grandson, he found a dollar each time! I'm so new to this so I haven't ridden on many trails. A few years ago I rode off road on the "John Muir" trail. The trail prize on that ride was surviving it! I had no idea what I was getting into. In some parts the trail was nothing more than a 6 inch rut! The real payoff though was some breathtaking views.
1st goal 255# MET 2/20/12 (Update: Met this goal but now have gained the weight back so it is now a goal once again)
2nd goal 205#
3rd goal 155#

Healthy by choice, not by chance!
moose and horse droppings, single gloves lost during the X country ski season, bear bells, and a hornet nest... empty thank goodness.
But like LUCKYDOGFARM said, health and sanity... priceless!
“The only way to keep your health is to eat what you don't want, drink what you don't like, and do what you'd rather not.”
my sanity and health. a few dried up ears of corn, a dime a few days ago. and a leather tag from a Coach bag.
several years ago when we lived in the desert, a condor dropped a baby bunny right in front of us. we brought it home with us and nursed it back to health and turned it loose when i was ready.
Don't complain about the results you didn't get for the fitness you didn't do!

I found a "domesticated" long-eared black & white rabbit. I think the owner was trying to find it a "new home" and thought it could survive in the wild. We brought it to the animal shelter.

We cover a lot of different terrain with road, recreational, and mountain biking. Safety requires scanning ahead for debris, hazards, etc. Some cool things we have found en route - Topeak White Lite headlight, big Allen wrench, gorgeous fluffy black kitten to name a few. "Marco" (yes, Pantani as named by daughter) is hands-down the best. He rode 15-ish miles back home with us in an old pannier.
What are some of the cool or useful items you've found in your adventures? Miles and fitness are great; "trail prizes" just make it a bit more fun & interesting.
