Finger Lakes Bike Tour - a wet one!

It really does rain on our tours sometimes, but not usually every day, as it did in the Finger Lakes this past week. But all 17 of us were troopers and managed to do most of our bicycling without whining when it wasn't raining. Still, a few of us got caught in a downpour, including Jenny....

It was a great tour and I miss everyone already!

Cross Training for a Bike Tour

I support cross-training for bicycle tours. Here I am among 11,000 other people at the Utica Boilermaker 15k running race last weekend. If you're looking for a great race, look no further. The Boilermaker is one of the best in the country. It's always hot and this year was no different. I didn't miss - I swear - I was just cooling off!

When Chanel and Tanya sent me the link to their beautiful photos from our Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard bike tour last month, they brought back wonderful memories. Bicycles, beaches and beauties....
