17* and sunny, good day to play with ashes (stove) just waiting for wind to die down.

 

Face full of ash cloud not a good thing. Then maybe I can spread some ash vs make an ash out of myself.😂

 

Driveway is ice. Walkway is ice, and will get sanded.

And yes, after long days/nights, I'd still like to swing these hunks of glass , plastic and silicon against the nearest wall Come on retirement!

EPSTER,

How many miles a week do you pedal?


@n566192l  Hi Nancy,

 

That depends upon the weather and time of year. When days are long, we frequently get in one 70-80 mile ride and a couple 25 to 50 mile rides a week, so that's about a 145 mile a week average. Right now mornings are c-c-cold, bike trails have icy spots and days are short, so it takes effort to get in a ride like today's 63 miler. And we get out less frequently because of weather (and snowshoeing!) , so in the winter our weekly average is closer to 75 miles.

 

I know a competitive cyclist who competes at the Masters level who says I'm not yet a real cyclist because real cyclists ride 10,000 miles a year. Smiley Happy (I've been riding 2 years and have ridden 8,200 miles). He's just ribbing me, but there are cyclists who believe that pedaling anything less than 10,000 miles a year does not make a person a true cyclist. Smiley Happy

@LaDolceVita, I'm so sorry to hear about your mother. I was in your situation also. It's hard to understand and deal with when it happens, so I feel for you. I'll keep you both in my prayers. Heart N.

@LaDolceVita

 

Been there, my mother had 2 massive strokes and several mini’s, still managed to keep most functions until well into her 90’s.

 

According to her doctor women can rework there neurons easier then men, for rapid recovery.

 

Up and moving within week, what once was debilitating now can be cured with a shot, and reworking of the pathways of the brain.

 

Wish your mother and you, the best👍.

@LaDolceVita Sorry to hear about your mother's stroke. Mary's mother had some minor strokes that went undetected for a while and she passed some time after they were detected. Hope they can help your mother have a quick recovery.

58F and sun forecast. Hopefully that's to be realized. It should be. Could be. Who knows. Smiley Happy At least it has been over 50 the last two days, so my reality will involve about 60 miles of bike trail today.

 

There's a bit of snow (maybe 8") on the horizon. Yay!  Meanwhile, though: cycling, cycling, cycling!
