Cowgirl on a Bike

This is Donna and she's my Cowgirl on a Bike...I love it! Donna prefers to ride in her cowboy boots which she claims are perfect for cycling and she often can be found speeding down a gravel road in a skort.  Make no mistake - She's one fast cowgirl!

Aaahhh...the Evening Ride

Oh yeah, there's nothing more rewarding than an evening ride at the end of a hot day after work.

The colors are always more intense, the end of the day has it's own distinct smells, and there is a unique quietness as everything settles down for the night. 

My favorite loop is 12-miles of forested fun that I can ride hard after a not-so-fun day of work to blow off my stress, I can ride it leisurely and see every detail along the way, or something in between the two. I'm never disappointed no matter how hard or easy I choose to ride. Even when I'm going hard my ADHD brain sees something that makes me come to a rapid stop to look and examine in slow detail. Sometimes it's nothing and sometimes it's the whole world in a very special slow-motion moment. 

Get out and ride your bike!

It's Hard to Live Here

It's hard to beat living here in North Central Idaho. On a daily basis it seems that I get awaken to sunrises like this...

And I end my day with bike rides viewing sunsets like this...

The beauty here is out of control. My back yard is full of mountains to explore, river & streams to be fished and awe inspiring vistas to be had.  

Yes, it's terrible being here...haha!
