So we went bike camping

Remind me once again why we thought pedaling to a campground at night after work, was a good idea. OMG the potholes! We had to stop a couple of times to temporarily fix the lights. Because of all those potholes we couldn’t see and actually hit last night, it jarred a few connectors loose. After… Continue reading So we went bike camping

It’s a lazy man camping trip

Well this is going to be interesting. After work we're pedaling 15 miles, probably in the dark and stopping at Costco for a hotdog. Then we'll pedal a little further to the campground. We've only got the medium sized tent, because we can’t find the smaller one. I have a feeling it’s with one of… Continue reading It’s a lazy man camping trip

Just for some reference. I’m 10 days post op from Cochlear Implant surgery, and I just pedaled my ebike a very short… Continue reading Everyday it’s a new adventure

It’s errand day and it’s raining!

When the fear of going into the Costco veggie dept is greater than pedaling your ELF in the SoCal traffic and rain to get there, you know it’s really cold inside that giant fridge.

I’m getting a Cochlear Implant “I Can Hear You Now”. Part 1

This isn't about biking, but it is a journey and an adventure. I like adventures! So far it’s more like a rollercoaster ride. Two decades ago just 3 months after having baby #2, I stood up and a major bout of vertigo hit me hard. I dropped to the floor. I was holding my three… Continue reading I’m getting a Cochlear Implant “I Can Hear You Now”. Part 1
