My Bicycle Guy- On Top of the World




























I just have to write a post to say how proud I am of my dear Jason for his GREAT accomplishment of making it all the way to Mt. Baldy on his bike. This is a big deal since he hasn't been up there in 15 years. Since his return to cycling 4 years ago it has been a goal of his to make the journey to Mt. Baldy once again but he just wasn't able to do it...until now!

Thanks everybody. I know Jason appreciates your kind words!

Jason misses riding w/ Mark too! He was his favorite riding buddy.

wow thats awesome. Are you still a bike widow on Saturdays?

Hi Therese- I don't use that term anymore. I realized it was kind of negative. The way I look at it now is that he sits in a car and then sits at a desk every single day. It's good for his body and mind to get outside for a few hours every Saturday morning. One perk of his becoming a more accomplished rider is that it takes him less and less time to do treks like this. Last week he was back home by 10:30am!
