On the road again...

It's been far too long and I have little to no excuse. As of this week, however, I am back on the bike! I can't express how great it is to bike commute again. I am looking forward to writing about another year of commuting and the different challenges of commuting in a different state and city.

Not much to write about in this post, except that I'm back on the buzz. Look for more to come and info about some of the new programs/shops going on here in Eastern Washington.

New Year Resolution

With a new year comes the thoughts of resolutions and new beginnings or at least continuation. I would love to resolve to ride my bike to work every day, but I want to set goals I know I can reach.

As the weather changes and the days get longer I will find it much easier to commute by bike and get back in the saddle for longer recreational ride as well. I am looking forward to getting back on the bike. I miss the satisfaction of moving myself and do not miss the frustration of driving.

I do want to make two resolution for 2010:

1. I resolve to learn more about bike maintenance. I can change a tube and some work, but I want to learn more,

2. I resolve to make some difference in the state of bicycling or bike commuting here in the Tri-Cities.

That's it. I am working to make these a little more specific and hope to find the time-line/plan soon. More to come and keep riding...I know I'll be out there soon!
