Five decades and counting

Freedom was an important topic in my last post and cycling is the personification of freedom for me. I love the sense of adventure, feeling the breeze ruffle through my hair and the feeling that I can go anywhere the road takes me. The rhythmic rotation of my feet as the miles pass is a form of meditation, my way of being whole and complete with this wonderful universe!

I was fortunate to celebrate my fiftieth birthday last October riding in the inaugural Bicycling Fall Classic in beautiful eastern Pennsylvania. Bicycling magazine hosted this 50 mile ride in honor of their fiftieth anniversary. What a great birthday gift!

The ride was also available in 10 and 25 mile routes and this year they are adding a 90 mile route. This is a great ride for families and with the different distances, there is a route for every rider. This year’s ride will be held on Sunday, October 7. The ride ends with a victory lap around the Valley Preferred Cycling Center velodrome!.

Here are a few pictures:
