    I was surprised to see Halloween decorations popping up on houses and in yards here in September! I draw the line at that. There are some good ones, but why can't people just wait until October? ...

    Thanks, Catrin. May investigate this at some point! It is not bothering me at all, though, and I continue to work on ROM exercises at home. At the time it happened, I suspect if I'd gone to an...

    NWG, I love reading about your trail (and other rides)! And I know from experience that MTB miles are much, much harder than road miles, under most circumstances. I have only rarely averaged over...

    Sounds like you're doing very well, despite any health issues! I can't even remember the last time I averaged over 15 mph, even in ideal conditions. I think if I had a lighter bike I could be a...

    Amazing about those temps there, Crankin! We have been 93-94 the past few days for highs, which is horrible, but this is Florida, not New England!

    Sounds like a bit of an odd ride, Crankin. Also sounds like you need a day or two of rest. Better to come back fresh next time than to be so fatigued. Also helps mentally, I think.

    I'll take...

    NWG, I remember slipping on damp fall leaves on a wooden bridge at one of our local MTB trails in NC. Went right down on such an easy little stretch. I was just starting to MTB and honestly didn't...

    Yesterday was my first ride since we've been back in Florida (west of Orlando) post-Irma evacuation. DH had explored the bike path to the east on Monday while I went to the orthodontist and ran...

    It surely worked out for us this time! We enjoyed our evacuation and treated it as a vacay. We had power and water and no worries about the hurricane, though it was a little costly because of the...

    NY, thanks for elaborating on the century. I have always heard that the Seagull seemed to be cursed with bad weather. We drove up from NC for it and stayed in a hotel so were especially...

    Amazingly, the power never went out at our RV park there! We got a report today from a friend who lives in Winter Garden. The Orlando area, not being on either coast, did not suffer as badly from...
