One year later and my leg?


It’s been a year since my crash…

Tibia

Never did get surgery for these breaks and now my foot is about 3 degrees out of placement and although I did a ton of PT, hired a personal trainer I am left with a leg that does not perform as it did prior to the accident.  I went hiking in the White Mountains a few weeks ago and it was at that time my leg weakened quickly to the point it felt like a peg leg.

The fall foliage in New Hampshire was amazing though and worth every limp.  😉

This past weekend was my first decent ride since I have moved to Connecticut.  Went out with some gals from New England, Minna and Victoria.  Continue reading “One year later and my leg?”

Crossing the Border – Day trippin’ in Washington State


October 30th 2014

I made another last minute decision to take a 2 night ride across the border into Washington State.  First time I think I have had no dogs to care for and absolutely no other real responsibilities  at home.  This prompted me to get away yet again. So, off I left around 1430 on Thursday to head down to Washington.  Short back country ride to La Conner for the night.

Pouring rain, lot’s of wind and then everything calmed down as I pulled into La Conner.  Known for it’s tulip festival in the Spring. Continue reading “Crossing the Border – Day trippin’ in Washington State”

2014 Fall DUAL SPORT BC Newbie Ride

2014 Annual Fall Dual Sport BC ride is a group ride for all size bikes and skill. There are three routes, A, B and C. C is the big bike adventure route. Great organization, great people and always a great ride.

Before I post about today’s ride I think I should catch up the BLOG about where I am at in my separation.  Again somethings should remain private but others can be shared since I have shared so much.  I guess you can say I am in the mourning phase of the loss of my relationship/marriage.  I will mention my ex’s name only once and then she will be referred to as my ex. 😉  Cheryl left on January 30th, 2014 and never looked back.  Since then I was fortunate to be able to buy her out of my house and keep it.

Just like that, some money and the swipe of a pen she was erased from ever owning my house.  We are completely separated and I would suppose the next step would be a divorce in 2015.  So, 2014 has been a struggle for me yet I seem to be able to continuously ride my bike.  It’s been a busy Fall fitting power rides, leisurely rides as well as the annual BC Dual Sport off-road ride too.
