Again getting a bit restless. Looks like my outside biking will not happen for at least another 2 weeks. Just heard another "polar vortex" is coming our way. Making plans to visit Europe this fall. Hopefully Harry and Dougie still remember me. I will make it a point to visit them as well as a friend (ok, I've got at least one friend) who currently lives south of London. Maybe I can get some biking in over there. I haven't been able to bike outside since last November so I hope I still remember how to do it as well as how to keep my balance.

Got the mid winter blues. Since returning from Key West all my biking has been in my basement on the trainer or at the rec center on the stationary. I'm about ready to ride outside. The weather for the weekend is supposed to be in the 40's so maybe I will risk it. On another note, I had a nice discussion with a young lady who is going to attempt a cross country bike ride in May. She is raising money for CASA; a program associated with helping children. I wish her success and explained the pros and cons of riding alone or with a group. Looking forward to following her journey through her blog.
