  • Our New Rides

    On the journey to "better," we've found that getting out and "doing" is far better than not. We've been walking 4 miles three times per week on the Cleveland Greenway, Unit on her hotrod walker and me unassisted.

    That Greenway is a cool setup. One day we were met by a lady on a recumbent trike coming the other direction. WOW.....I could be pedaling again, and Unit with shaky balance could stay up on one of those. Well....

    And we happen to already have the perfect hauler to haul them to the fun place.

    Fun. The racing stable gets larger but slower. These things, if you get to going down a hill, don't enjoy it. Brakes. Keep it coralled or it'll get scary and unstable if attempting any sort of a road course turn at speed. But in a straight line on smooth pavement with no more than gentle inclines...pedal, smile and enjoy the air and the scenery. And make VROOM race car sounds when you're sneaking up behind somebody walking along. That's the rule - let 'em know you're there and then pass on the left.

            I am leery of recumbent bikes in traffic - I can't see, and no one can see me! A bike path makes much more sense. The problem in this town is most bike paths go under the many bridges..... where drug dealers and addicts, homeless crazies, general assorted ne'er-do-wells are lurking. Most serious bikers I know use public parks and carry a gun.

                        pdub getting healthy. wondering where he went

                        I quit smoking to try an approved vape about a month ago.
                        I learned I was a stomach smoker decades ago.. I am not missing an addiction or whatever that is.

                        I am in fear of an extreme bowel condition emerging.
                        I have an extreme carcinogen..it even odors out. (it is freakish) and a guess where it came from.
                        but anyway.. I am feeling more energetic appetite etc etc.
                        I am supposed to be dead by now.

                        I'd try a bike, but I'd get run over by a 800hp earthquake called a logging truck
                        I got a walking trail that locks up my foot before I can go the distance. Nice to be able to try anyway

                        the death rate and fairy tales cannot kill the nature left behind.
