On ride today I rode past cyclist sitting on side of road changing tire. As I went past him I asked the obligatory question ‘you ok?’ I couldn’t understand his reply so I stopped and went back. This guy from Boston was an experienced cyclist with nice bike and all but no CO2 cartridges. Glad I had 3 cartridges and could help. ... See MoreSee Less

Happy Valentines Day ride. Scratched Longboat Key-Anna Maria Island ( my grandmother was Anna and my mother was Marie) ride off my bucket list. Some great views of Gulf of Mexico along great road with fantastic bike lanes and paved multiuse paths just off bike lanes. Several super nice public beaches with huge parking lots and nice cafes and facilities. (Teddy Bear was on traffic circle in Sarasota on way to Keys.❤️) ... See MoreSee Less

Finally got a ride in today on the The Legacy Trail, a perfectly straight, flat paved rail trail from Sarasota to Venice and then an extension along the canal in Venice. Although I had a blow out (rear tire, of course), it was a very enjoyable ride. (Decided to use a dollar bill as a band aid and buy a new tire. I told the guys at bike shop that whoever changes the tire can keep the dollar inside...)

The rail line was used by the circus trains leaving and returning to the Ringling Bros./Barnum & Bailey winter home in Venice. Pictures below show the beautiful Venice train station.

I like cycling with James Kilgalen and the Company! It's like self- training, like treatment with wind, with cold, with climbing to uphill ....but in reward it will be beautiful roads and views. Thank you 🙏 I need it! ❤️ ... See MoreSee Less
