Forty Thousand Miles

October 10th, 2015

          Today my Trek 4500 bicycle odometer registered 40,000 miles. It’s a heavy-duty mountain bike that requires a bit more energy to handle and ride but the wheels easily accommodate thick tires and tubes which do a great job resisting punctures.


40,000 Miles 2015-10-10
          The Trek is 12 years old and one of three bicycles I own and ride. However, in recent years I’ve been spending more time on the Trek and racking up around 5,000 miles every eleven months.

          Although the Trek folks no longer manufacture their products in the United States. mine is from the generation when they did.

          I’ve spent more than its original price in repairs over the years but haven’t seen anything comparable on the market that I’d deem a worthy replacement. So am planning on riding it for many more years.

October – National Breast Cancer Month

October 1st, 2015

.          October is the month I wear a pink wristband day and night to remind me (and others) that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast Cancer is a terrible disease that can strike both women and men.

.          Until a cure is found we all need to help. Please read more about the issue and what each of us can do using the The National Breast Cancer Foundation webpage link.  Thanks.
