…e gotten up earlier for the ride, but cuddling and the covers felt too amazing that morning.   24.46 miles on a Raleigh Capri in for review Sunday was another story. I wanted to get some mileage in and I wanted to try out the Collier Lily 100k route. Again, I should have gotten up earlier. I wasn’t on the bike until 11am, about the same time Kim was taking the kids to the pool.  This was about 3 hours later than I wanted to be on the bike f…

…aught in the back wheel. Foot in the back wheel is what I remember. After that my parents bought me a kids size Raleigh racing bike. It was red to white fade. Man, I miss the 80s. WHO INSPIRES YOU TO RIDE, AND BETTER YET WHY? My mom, Janet and my coach, Stacey. These two women ride their bikes through it all. My mom is recovering from cancer and got back on her bike as soon as she could. Stacey is a very busy businesswoman and mom and still rides…

…sion 29er is a big step up from my pieced-together, 26″ hard tail mountain bike that was built on a dated Raleigh frame.  I was so excited about the new bike that I got started on my New Years goal a little early.  We tagged along with some friends on a ride on north Georgia (although we weaved in and out of North Carolina a bit).  To fit with my New Year’s resolution and my new bike, there were several firsts on this ride.  We were l…

…e let’s begin at 5:15am when I woke up. Why? Because I had to leave by 6:15am for the 2.5-3 hour drive to Raleigh. Thank goodness for in car entertainment of Natalie Moore (friend, cheerleeder and cyclocross virgin)! In the car, rocking towards Lion’s Roar I know my body was feeling sore. There’s no reason a 2.5 hour drive should bother me, but something in my hamstring and lower back just didn’t feel right. Get to race, t…

…cross races together. I also own a full suspension Trek Fuel EX, a WSD Trek Madone 5.2, and a turquoise vintage Raleigh cruiser which is used for errands and towing surf & paddle boards. I am shopping for a carbon CX bike with a lot of character and a small price tag. As corny as this sounds, I trust destiny will bring us together. I’d love to add a single speed to the family as well. *    *    *    *    *    * Motivational Monday, a Mo…

The other is the first new bike I’ve ever owned, a 2002 Trek 1000 road bike, which will be my primary bike when I’m back home, in case I want to jump into a race. *    *    *    *    *    * Motivational Monday, a Monday tradition at Bike Shop Girl, my goal to keep…
