Ride across America

Ride across America

Why do I ride? For some reason at age 60 I bought a $49 bike at Walmart. 7 years later at age 67 I rode my bike across America that finished 20 days ago in FL. I still don't have the words for getting on my Specialized Ruby and riding to the next destination for that day! What a total and complete thrill to have nothing else to do but ride my bike. Every day for 50 days was a dream come true. Some days were very difficult, think Emory Pass in NM. Some were just unbelievably beautiful and joyful. But all were rewarding in very different ways. So why do I ride? I guess for the love of riding.
