Joyful Solstice to all my bike friends :)
I’m with you in stirit and when you sprint up rupert Mt.
Still no job, college feels sometimes like climbing Rupert Mt. “the back side”
oh well, life is moving forward and I am learning so,,,,much!
I was up aat 6 am. and on my bike so … that is good!
Warm Hugs to all and have an amazing ride …
oh hey,,, I say a deer today that almost ran me down on my bike ,though I did notice the derection he was about to turn and I sure as heck turned the other way:)
Smile and the world smiles with you, and it is good to be alive!

Gr8 ride last Thurs. – some of us roadies from First Trax in West Dover (Mount Snow land) joined the Battenkill group for their annual Solstice celebration ride. For me it was a first – up Rupert followed by another first – an excelerating dip in the limestone quarry – after 45mi. on the bike my legs were wobbly — but the quarry has magical healing powers and I felt like a new woman! Thank you to all the roadies who I drafted behind on my longest bike ride of the season <3
