Short Rides with My Bride

One of the nicest parts of being in Florida is the time I get to share a ride with my bride.  This week we just took a leisurely ride up to our church and back, but it is a fun route:



Next week I am doing a 65 mile ride for Camp Korey in Carnation, WA.  A few more hills, but a great cause.  Hope you can support me!





 

Raising Money for Cirtically Ill Children

So today I am heading back to Tampa for a week then I return to Everett, WA.  I am arriving at the time we have a hurricane in the Gulf and the RNC in town as well.  Hopefully all goes smoothly.

But, the real reason I write - I am preparing for my next big ride.  On Sept 8 I am riding 65 miles to raise money for Camp Korey.  Camp Korey is based in Carnation, WA and provide a free camp experience for kids with critical illness.  I am hoping to do my best and complete this great ride.

To help track my ride, I just picked up a new bike mount for my HTC One X phone.  I will be testing this during the route to use Endomondo to track my progress and also to provide a few tunes along the way.

You can support me by following this link to visit my personal web page and help me in my efforts to support Camp Korey

Looking forward to the next adventure!
 

Been Too Long Since We Last Spoke


What a whirlwind year!  So far I have changed jobs, started the process of relocating to the Seattle area, shipped a bike across the country and climbed an 18% grade hill.  I'll let you guess which one was hardest.  The problem?  I have not have enough time to ride as much as I need to (and have put on 30 lbs).  What to do, oh what to do!

I have found a few rides that I quite enjoy in Everett, about 20 miles north of Seattle.  The picture to the right is the ride I did this past Monday - about 30 km, great scenery, and bike lanes all around.  It is so refreshing to live in an area so committed to cycling!

Of course, Washington has something we don't have in St Petersburg, FL.  Hills!  So my legs have been struggling to get used to the new terrain as I cycle on my Scott Speedster around Seattle.  I expect it so get a bit easier the more I ride.  At least, I hope it does.  If not, well, my rides might take a bit longer as I age.  At least there are only bears, cougars, and coyote to worry about!
