This upcoming year I am co-captaining a bike team for my Garden/bike group AlleyCat Acres. I am excited to be able to be part of this group. We are working hard on a few projects and I am totally excited to get this ball rolling. So soon I will start my fundraising endeavors and hope to be one of the top. After the meeting today I am more excited to get going on this bike team and the bike riding.
So I am just posting this out there if anyone is inclined to sponsor me on the ride. Grand prize I hear is a trip to DC to sit in on some food policy sessions. So click here to go to the donation page, and I will be raising money for the tour de cure in a few months. As I get ready to hit the streets again, I feel so out of shape. My bike has been resting comfortably in my apartment for a couple of months. I truly wish I had been able to ride in the snow. No wait, I loathe snow, naw staying home and cooking more food than an army can eat was therapeutic.
Earlier this month, Richard bought a new bike. He bought a bike two summers ago so he could ride with me. He bought a pretty bike, but not well made and not practical. I rode it before I got my new bike for a few months. I just thought he was out of shape and didn’t understand gearing. Nope, not him at all. That bike is made for 1-2 mile and around the neighborhood trips. My daughter is taking that bike, since she has never really biked before. I hope eventually she gets that pesky biking bug. I know she has the food bug, now she wants to get her business degree, then go on to culinary school. Maybe I should go to culinary school ;).
Today we have our second official team ride, anyone may join us. I am excited to get my bike out and explore. I know the weather is cold, but not so cold we will not have fun. So just like every morning I am up early. Not really early, but early enough. I have been jittery all week, and I forgot to print my discount coupons. 😦 We are riding through the Arboretum and then onto the Burke Museum to see a new food oriented display. Cannot wait. I hope to post a follow up this afternoon, maybe pictures.
