    I don't know if this was just a weird thing where I grew up (NJ) but let me see if you know what I mean:
    zip zap zooey zip zap

    Does that mean anything to you as a vw van fan?

    [QUOTE=bikerHen]Real name: Explanation of your handle: Like I said, "I aint a chick no more". But I'm a hen that's finally hitting her stride. Maybe life DOES begin at 50?!QUOTE]

    I love the statement 50 is the *new* 30 ... and I couldn't agree more.

    I took a cue from Oprah who said that she was looking forward to her 50th birthday and when she was finished turning 50 everyone was going to look forward to turning 50.

    Biking has and continues to play an important part of helping me define who I am. I love the age that I am and will continue to be grateful for every age that I am blessed to experience.

    Lisa - I hope you'll post a photo of your bike with your dogs in the carrier. DH and I have talked about getting a burley (as many of you have heard me mention in the past, we have four resident English cockers) and DH's dog, Lucy (aka The Queen of Everything) would look splendid in a burley as would any of the others

    That sounds like a great idea! I've been looking for a group in the area to get out and ride with.

    Count me in ..... as long as you're willing to stop and wait up for me once in awhile. Distance doesn't seem to be as much problem since I've come back to biking, but I haven't really got my speed up to what it should be yet....especially on the hills.

    With our weather now heading back into a more winterish direction, I guess I won't get to go on the long ride I had planned for Saturday. I little cold isn't bad, but I don't want to take my baby out in rain, slush or whatever it is their calling for on Sat.

    Hey Nuthatch and Corsair...

    Y'all can call me Shew. I think it's kind of fun. That's how nicknames get started! Ha! Thanks for the welcome. Love this board!

    Sorry, we never talked like that. But my formative years were spent in So. California so maybe that has something to do with it! Although I do have a hard time relating any phrase that includes "zip" with a VW van. Hey! My biking style is just like my van. Slow, gasp, don't stop on the uphill because you will never get started again. Then . . . pedal like mad on the downhill So what does - zip zap zooey zip zap - mean? Inquiring minds what to know? bikerHen

    Well we did take some pic on a ride last summer but it may take a few days to figure out how to publish them to this site. I actually did some research into dog trailers, yes, they do make trailers just for dogs! I goolged bike trailers and found a company that specializes in dog trailers. The biggest difference being the axel is located more in the center of the trailer where a dogs center of gravity would be. My lovable but cheap DH firmly declined to spend that kind of money on "a couple of dogs". So, we got a cheap version at the local department store that he modified. Having said all that, it really is a kick taking the dogs. The dogs seem to have fun as long as were moving but want out as soon as we stop. Kinda like kids! bikerHen

    Here is the glossary:
    zip: a vw bug
    zip zap: a red vw bug
    zip zap zoey: a vw van
    zip zap zoey zip zap: a red vw van

    I guess we're just weird in NJ

    Tlkiwi, your mom is an artist! How beautiful - my favorite is "Oh to be in India" - I'm a sucker for those bright colors to cheer up long midwestern winters. Now, dang you guys! I used to quilt way back before kids, chores, etc. and now you're gonna wake up my sleeping (and expensive) fabric monster. Yes, I've got the bag in the basement with about three or four quilts' worth of fabric, etc. I never got to. Must..concentrate..on...new...bike!!!
