Wheeling through the Valley

Another Multiple Sclerosis bike tour happened this weekend, and though it looked like it would rain on us right up until, well, up until it didn't -- it was a grand sunny time. For the second year now, I completed most of the course, opting to not do the "extra" section on the second day, and rolling my way through 130km and coming out still on good terms with my quadriceps.

The event is massive, at least to me. 500 participants and all forms of bikes: mountain bikes, hybrids, recumbent bikes -- the works. This year, however, I fear I've drooled perhaps a little too much over the road bikes, and now (wait for it) I want one. Conversations with people on the road, friends and strangers alike, resulted in me at least wanting to take a good road bike out for a few days just to see the difference for myself. Maybe I'll work on that for next spring, or late this fall when people are ready to part with their road bikes as they think about the long, cold winter.

Warning -- don't take that test ride unless you are ready to commit. I learned that lesson the hard way. And now I have 2 bikes.

Yeah. Sorry 'bout that. Anyway, it should make good blog fodder, so head on over and see what it's all about!
