Yesterday and today we will skip cycling. The reason..........for 1.5 years my doggie and I have been training almost daily, learning the business of agility. We've had to learn how to maneuver different obstacles and more importantly, build a b... Read more

It's getting hot in South Texas. The avg temp for today's ride was 92.6. It just keeps you honest. Worked on hills, walked/trained the dogs, and did some house cleaning. Great day to stay busy. HOOAAA!!... Read more

All continues well, in spite of temperatures hovering in the 90's. Worked on some hills, which is always so much fun (NOT). The body is hanging tough. After the ride, I mowed, trimmed, vaccuumed, and made my bike pretty. I svn did 2 training ses... Read more

Pretty hot day today, but we hung tough and ended up with a nice fast ride. Covered 43.21 miles in 2.5+ hours. I went to the Air Force Base and did some lifting before the ride. Additionally, I trained the dogs twice and took them for a small wa... Read more

Good workout day, in spite of temperatures in the 90's. Today was hill day and boy was it challenging. It's so good for you, but hurts bunches. Worked the dog a bit and took them both for a late afternoon long walk. They'll definitely sleep well... Read more

Another great and very active day. In the morning I walked and trained my dogs and did a nice bike ride, with particular attention to hills. In the afternoon I mowed, trimmed, spread fertilizer, and sprayed the weeds. Finally, I took the dogs fo... Read more

End of the Month

I just looked at my month's journal and realized that this month I've done the least amount of riding since I started seriously riding 9 years ago. Between the Texas rains and my trip to Tucson and Vegas, I will have ridden just 12 days in May.... Read more

Took 2+ weeks off in order to visit my new great granddaughter and my sisters. Just before my trip began, I was hit with a leaky passenger side leak in my '09 Volvo. I'd already had to pay over $2,500 for various repairs and this one was over $3... Read more

Tuesday, May 12, 2015      1 comments

May is turning out to be a very difficult month. Between the very bad allergies and the constant rain, it's becoming difficult to put in some miles. Hopes it clears up soon. On another positive note, I found out that I'm officially a great grand... Read more

Very Nice Ride

Well, we did our first century of the year. Almost 4,000 feet of climbing and plenty of wind. But, the body hung tough and I did my fastest 100-miler ever. Seems that I get stronger as the ride gets longer. Many young studs were passed by this b... Read more
