Accomplishments are made in baby steps, not standing still. Lets keep moving forward, celebrate accomplishments that have already been made, and look with wide-eyed excitement at what could come next. Stomping their feet and throwing a tantrum never got my kids anything; except time out in what they referred to as the torture corner. Maybe people need to stop acting like children and be the adults we all know they can be…or…I have a nice corner in my house you are welcome to come sit in for a while.
There is enough fear, hate, and divisiveness around us today. We don’t need to be creating more. What we need is more encouragement, love, and cooperation.

Hello fellow riders, or anyone who is looking to start riding. Since National Bike Month and the National Bike Challenge started on May 1st I thought some posts on bicycle safety would be a good idea. I was out riding today and thought the first topic should be using hand signals.
You just crested the hill. Your legs are a bit tired, it takes a little bit to catch your breath, but the pounding of your heart makes you feel alive. Now, laid out before you is a long straight stretch which means it is now just you, your bicycle, and your thoughts. I LOVE those moments! It is like a cornocopuia of emotions leaping about in your brain all at once: accomplishment, fatigue, determination, and nirvana. Ok, maybe not everyone feels this way, but oh what a world if they did!
