We made the best of good weather over the past Saturday and Sunday by getting in a couple of 25-mile rides. It wasn’t pretty as this was only our 3rd time back on the tandem since January 15th and last week’s ride was a short one. But, any ride is a good ride.
Looking ahead, nothing really near term for cycling events until the Georgia Tandem Rally in mid-May. We have a lot going on in April with Debbie’s retirement on 3 April, a trip to New Orleans on 6-9 April, Easter, Debbie’s 60th birthday events, and then we head to Panama City Beach for spring bike week the first weekend in May. Of course, Debbie hasn’t been on the motorcycle since last November so at least year-to-date she’s way ahead on cycling miles vs. motorcycling miles.
And, in terms of her retirement plans, she plans to ride her bicycle… a lot. So, perhaps that will motivate me to start getting out before work for a 20 miles road ride or in the evenings for trail riding on a mountain bike.
