Musings about fun between my legs

2015 Intro

    It rained on and off much of the day – Don and I woke up listening to the rain from our hotel:  the window could open a bit!!  And the warm temperatures of the previous 2 days had cooled significantly.  Sleep in, leisurely breakfast, laundry at Sarah’s, some Target shopping, salmon on the grill at Sarah’s ...

    When I checked into the hotel yesterday afternoon, I discovered that I had a single room, due to the absence of my scheduled roommate.  As much as I have enjoyed all of the other tour participants, a single room was a special treat.  I stayed up later than usual, unafraid of disturbing my roommate; I ...

    Not directly related to my Atlantic Coast bike tour, today is a day of celebration: First, it is my 43rd wedding anniversary.  On May 27, 1972, in New York City (it was a Memorial Day weekend), Don and I were married.  There have been a few low moments, and lots of high moments, and we have ...

    After riding across the Delaware River yesterday into New Jersey, I spent most of today’s ride in New Jersey.  Our route took us back across the river  to Lambertville, a quaint artsy town.  Of course, we didn’t linger, but continued on SR 29, which parallels the Delaware River and the Delaware & Raritan Canal path ...

    This will be a short post:  I am exhausted.  Again today we followed the Delaware River, first crossing from Pennsylvania to New Jersey, biking for 15 miles, then back across to Pennsylvania, another 15 miles, back to New Jersey, ending in Pennsylvania.  However, this time the route was up and down lots of hills.  Only ...

    Lousy internet connection so short report again today.  Rode the first 16 miles with Gail, Marilyn, Leilani and Jan from CCST13 – Leilani and Jan have been riding self-supported with us for three days – it was great fun to see them.  There were some good hills the first 20 miles or so, but then ...

    Uploading photos is taking “forever”, so I will just write a quick text. Highlights of the day: *Biking across the Walkway Across the Hudson bridge – 1.2 miles long above the river, midway between New York City and Albany – a bit windy, loved seeing the 8-man/woman boats racing below. *”Detour” with Susan G. and Marilyn B. to ...

    The best adjectives to describe the day are wet, cold and hilly.  I rode today with Gail and Marilyn B. from CCST13. They are an especially good team when conditions are poor – they just focus on getting the miles done.  I really needed them the last 15 miles as my cue/clue sheet was virtually ...
