Bike Path Collision

Cloudy and threatening to rain but got my ride in. Worked on candence and kept it above 80 rpm's until I collided with a kid who decided to make a sudden u-turn into my path. Lost my cadence magnet on the bike path. Work out time=48 min, 10.8 miles, avg speed=14.1 mph, avg cadence=86 rpm.

Rest Day - but a thought from T. Harv Eker

Rich people believe “You can have your cake and eat it too.” Middle-class people believe “Cake is too rich, so I’ll only have a little piece.” Poor people don’t believe they deserve cake. So they order a doughnut, focus on the hole, and wonder why they have ‘nothing’”.

No Bike Ride-Rain, Rain, Rain

Spin on Mag Trainer for 45 minutes. Average cadence 75 RPM. Boring but at least I did not fall.

Biking & Golfing Raven at Verrado, Arizona

March 16, 2006. This is my second week of training. Played 18 holes of golf with the "Golf Dude"-Steve Schmidt. Then biked for 37 minutes, 7.6 miles with a 380 feet elevation change. Then played 18 more holes of golf. Then had over a pound of prime rib for dinner.

Biking in Palm Desert

There aren't many places where you can ride at speed limit 60MPH. I hope there are no radar guns. Thanks to my stylist and photographer-Donna McKenzie

My First Blog

This is my first attemp to create a Blog. Hopefully I'll get this up and running by the end of the week. This is where I'll post my progress in my attempt to ride my bike from San Francisco to Los Angeles, a total of 500 miles in 8 days. I am raising money for the Arthritis Foundation so I need your help.
