HoneysuckleRose,
Hope you're doing well and having a great autumn!

Our Bike to the Moon team is disappearing into the atmosphere..wondering if you are still striving to meet the Man in the Moon with us? Hope so......I'll soon be in several feet of snow and won't be able to help...but hate to leave our loyalists like Janet all by her lonesome!

Thanks and hope you are having a wonderful autumn of biking!

Thank you for your comment on my blog about discovering a fitness park in my city. I live in Port Coquitlam, BC, Canada. We have a really nice trail all the way around our city - I've biked it quite a few times this year but I've always glanced at this section just off the trail and thought that it was a kiddie's playground. It wasn't until my walk on Friday that I realized that it was a fitness park for ages 12 and up! My SIL & I have plans to walk 2x a week this summer to use it. I understand that it's busy in the evenings with the various sports teams, etc.

I'm thrilled! I see that you've discovered the joys of biking too! Isn't it wonderful!?!? My all time favourite activity!
