    FixedGear- I either get some heckling or cheers in my A&M kit. Cedar Park has a lot of Aggies, so it is usually welcome up north.

    Pikato- I have two miniature schnauzers- Heidi and Maggie. They are such great dogs.

    Welcome Pikato - so I have to ask....you say your younger brother is in your stable - is he contained or do you allow him to run free?? LOL

    ahh Poet - those are Quite the fields and I should have Reconized your name my friend!! Welcome to another BJ member!! Joe was just asking me earlier if your mom was still riding. I had sent her another email asking if she wanted to go again but didn't get an answer back so I wasn't sure. She and Pat were so cute, worried the whole time we were riding that they were slowing me down and keeping me from doing a "real" ride! I tried to tell them a ride is a ride no matter the distance or speed - but I"m not sure they believed me!

    Real name: Mimi

    Where do you live? Seattle, WA
    Explanation of your handle: Handle? Mimi who is a crazy cat lady, therefore
    mimi tabby. (I work with a cat rescue organization during some of my non-working non-biking free time.


    Explanation of your avatar: none yet

    Age (general or specific): 54

    Occupation: Lifer at large aerospace manufacturing company, work with computers in a lab.

    Favorite bike: don't know yet. Maybe the Terry Madeleine? except it's a boring color. Looking for a new bike, just my size that I like and that
    makes the hubby happy. (he wishes i had a road bike)

    What's in your stable? I have a Raleigh cross, and a Burley Rock and Roll
    Tandem.

    Fastest speed on a road bike? Where? When? don't ride a roadbike. been up to 32 on the tandem (with my eyes open) sorry, don't know where. We have llots of hills around here.

    Most memorable moment on my bike:
    when I got up a particularly short hard hill on my own.

    What is the biggest lie you've ever told:
    can't remember. Try not to tell big lies often.

    Most fun ever had on a bike? Tandem rallies are a lot of fun I've been to two and the next one is going to be in Corvallis, OR.

    Another picture of yourself or your ride?
    I did the STP when I turned 50. It was really really hard. I can't draft off
    other people because I see out of only 1 eye at a time and have poor depth perception.
    here's a photo of my son and I half way to Portland on the STP. I am so tired
    I do not realize that i've put the helmet back onto my head backwards.



    here i am in Portland, Tired and DAMN happy it's over!

    I think it was in a thread about stuff found on the side of a road and I admitted I've picked up pristine roadkill for hubby who ties flies. Your hubby admitted that he sometimes had to, er, keep you under control when you spot things. Kindred spirits!

    Raleighdon provided tons of info about brevets, permanents, etc., last year when I was asking. He's also been trying to coerce us into going to the tandem rallies. We just missed you guys in Bend last summer as we went up for the Cascade Classic just after the Rally. He'll probably remember me as Goldilocks. Something about liking rides that were not too long, not too hilly, but just right.

    Too funny about the roadkill! I used to do taxidermy at a local museum and I picked stuff up all the time to take in to work. Usually it was just squirrels and random birds, but the best "score" was a beautiful Snowy Owl that I stuffed.

    roadkill

    true. I picked up a freshly killed raccoon one morning. My husband had to go to a conference and my sons (who were yard ape size at the time) and i were along for the ride. I picked up the raccoon, dropped off the husband
    and went to a kmart and bought a boning knife. I went to a park, where my sons entertained themselves and i skinned out that raccoon on a picnic table.
    Since then i have found roadkill birds and taken them to the university's museum where they do feather studies on them.
    We still have the raccoon skin, but one of my cats thought it was really funny to attack it's tail, so the tail is much shorter than it used to be.

    Mimi
