It didn’t rain on the day we went to Epcot, but it was really cold and windy – and of course if you have been following my Florida trip so far you know I was really sick. I could barely talk this day, but there was no way I was gonna waste my vacation laying around the rental house the whole week!
We were disappointed that the weather took a turn for the worst, but tried to not let it interfere with our trip so on New Years day we headed to the Magic Kingdom. I felt horrible with a sore throat and cough. When we got to the park, it was raining so we were hoping that most people would stay home – we thought wrong.
EXCITING NEWS FRIENDS!!!
One of my favorite podcasts is The Joyride Podcast which focuses on women cyclists – and it is awesome. I have been an avid fan of the show since close to the start of the podcast when I binge listed to all the episodes.
I was delighted to be a guest on the show on the first episode of season 3! If you want to listen to me talk about bikes with Cat, the host, check out Episode 31 of The Joyrode Podcast here – or wherever you listen to your podcasts!
The day after the Merry Little Bike Ride, it snowed all day long and well into the night in PA. I have seen that people cycle when it snows and have been curious how my bike would handle it. Also, I have all those lights strung on my bike and thought it would look pretty awesome in the snow, but do I need studded tires for my bike like I have read about? Would I be slipping all over the road? Do I need a fat tire bike? I decided to see what would happen if I took my hybrid out for a spin.
When I saw the event on facebook for the first annual Merry Little Bike Ride – I knew I HAD to go. The free slow ride was organized by Lititz Bikeworks and the Northern Lancaster County Regional Police Department – they just asked that if you rode, you donated a gift to a child in need. A good cause where I can ride my bike and string lights all over it?!? DONE!
I can’t quite remember when I first heard about Mackinac Island in Michigan, but from the moment I did I knew it would be a cool place to visit. On a recent road trip with my dad we decided to visit since we were in the area snagging a few highpoints anyway! What makes the island so special? You have to take a ferry to get to it and NO CARS are allowed – only bikes and horses. Sounds pretty perfect, right?
