OMG, I cannot believe this blog is still here! I am still not riding my bike. A bit hard in all this snow and ice but I want to start again. I have started doing 5K walks, am now on WW to lose weight (down 12#) and need something to mix it up a bit.

Of course I look outside in this snowstorm and think yah right. So instead I am reading some biking babe blogs (mostly fashion which I am not into but it is still fun to read and imagine riding a bike in NYC with something hardly enough to cover one's tush.)

So for now I am going to do a little dreaming...

I have run into quite the problem. The "insta-adjust" seat on my bike doesn't like to stay where I need it. So riding down the road and oops, she slips down to kiddie height. Dammit. So I had been riding Ben but the narrow tires just do not handle these roads and I am going broke on tubes.

Dis-courage-ing!!!

May is biking month. I forget the date but there is a commuting week and a commuting day to encourage bicycle commuting. I think it is great and would love to do it but because I use my car in my line of work (delivering mail) I need my car.

Then I am thinking I could perhaps park the car behind the PO on the one day and ride there. My biggest fear is someone will steal my gas and I need my gas to run my route. Silly huh but it this day of high gas prices a quarter tank of gas just may be a temptation.

But I am thinking on it...

Finally! A day without 25 mile and hour winds! I got home from doing route early and headed out on the bike. I need to get another computer so I can track my mile(s) *snicker* on the road bike. I felt like I could go forever today with no wind to fight! But 60 is too warm for me so I may have to change to earlier in the morning.

In my biking and k-route dilerium last week I stumbled upon a website called Dirt Rag. It is a mountain bike site/magazine that also celebrates ART and literature! How cool is that? I sent for a sample issue and look forward to getting it.

Today was a big day. I did the "k" route, the whole thing, all by myself. I beat the mail truck by 10 minutes! Whew! I really pushed it at the end. Next time I'll push it all the way through. I still made quite a few mistakes, but it will come eventually. I'm just glad I made it.

So I come home and took Benji for a ride since ds16 readjusted the seat for me again last night with the new seat. It is mine now. I peddled the whole road, Tex and I and it just felt real nice. My butt doesn't hurt and my knees feel the workout but not in a bad way.

I will sleep good tonight!
