I ride my bike to work… I'm a bike commuter

2014…. Time to Get Back on the Bike

Leave a comment

commutteWow, my mileage for 2013 was “less than stellar” to say the least.   I barely rode, it seemed.   I had a lot going on in my life last year.  Those of you that know me know what I’m talking about.

I also came to the conclusion (thanks to a close friend) that I rode all those years to escape what was dragging me down.   I can’t argue that point one bit.  She was very correct in her assessment.

Now, with that being said, I AM still a cyclist.  Once a cyclist, ALWAYS a cyclist.   It’s in my blood.   I do enjoy riding.  I just need to rediscover WHY I ride.

I have gotten back into reading some cycling blogs for inspiration.   They are working.   I’m dropping my commuter bike off at my favorite bike shop to get an overhaul-like tune up.   Brakes, gears, derailleurs, etc…  The works!  I can’t wait to get it back in tip top shape.     This is my yellow GT bike that I have had for close to 20 years.  My favorite bike.  My “go to” bike.   God, I love riding that bike.

So, it’s time to blow off the dust on the blog here and get riding and writing again.
