Cycling Assateague Island

We were rained out of our camping trip, but I happened to see that the weather at Assateague Island was supposed to be nice Saturday until the evening.  We were able to book a last minute pet friendly hotel in Ocean City, NJ so we loaded up the bikes along with the Doggyride and the 3 of us headed to the beach!

Wine & Wheels

I noticed that my favorite winery was very close to the Schuylkill River Trail so I decided to see if I could get a group together to cycle to it.  I called it the Wine & Wheels bike ride, and although the trip was spur of the moment I had 8 people interested in joining in.  I picked the Brentwood trailhead which was a little over 3 miles away from Ridgewood Winery and told everyone to meet there.  Due to various reasons everyone dropped out except my friend Tracy.  We decided to go a little earlier because rain was expected in the late afternoon.  We also decided to meet at a spot further up the trail to make our ride a little longer – the day was so gorgeous that it was an easy decision to cycle the whole way there!

I was a guest on The Joyride Podcast

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.

ENJOY!

Snowy Bike Ride

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.
