” I had a great year visiting new places, riding some new gravel with some great people on two wheels.
Its been a while since I recorded my miles with you, so please forgive me if I duplicated some of my efforts.

What a great ride through the beautiful countryside of Boone County (and parts of Howard Co.) Missouri. Even better when we are riding for a cause – West/Midwest Spinal Cord Injury fund in support of John Bowders.
Gravel grind to start the season. Super Kate and I at the start – finished the day in 2nd place – chasing Super Kate
What a disappointing year for this ride. I had high hopes for a solid finish with a faster time than the previous year. Following the long hike through the mud, riding in the deep mud, the shifting started to fail and my time was not what I had hoped for. Knowing that I would have a hard time making the cutoff to the next checkpoint with questionable shifting, I chose to call it a day at Checkpoint #1.
Training Ride in the Trail
Another gravel training ride with company. This was one of my better days on the bike as I had a friend who jumped in as I was nearing the end of the ride.
My friend who is fighting the overweight battle decide to take on the bike this year; how I love watching friends enjoy 2 wheels just as much as I do. I love seeing her fitness get better with every ride she does. The pace may have slowed down, but I needed a rest. The experience on a bike with other is way more entertaining and memorable. Cheers to more training rides with a friend.
Rebecca’s Private Idaho
What a place to ride!!! I want to go back….I rode everyday leading up to the big ride which I learned may not have been such a good idea. The day of RPI; my legs were cashed, it was a chilly start to a beautiful day and I had caught an upper respiratory bug that would try to be the death of me with every climb.
With a good friend and the will to never quit – RPI complete. What an emotional ride…I’ve never dug such a hole for myself physically on the bike before and the awe inspiring view we were surrounded by. This is definitely a ride I would love to do again.
