A Bit Of Catching Up, A Plan and I Need A New Pair Of Gloves.

A trip to Iroquois to photograph Carmen House - A stellar day, lots of practice waving to other riders
It’s time for some “catching up” … a little bit of life, a little bit of work and a whole lot of weather  has gotten in the way but that doesn't mean I haven’t had the chance to catch the breeze on my star a few times  this spring.  In all honesty it hasn't been a great month for riding; with rain, cold and all round unpredictable weather I haven’t added many miles to the odometer.
The rotten weather has given me a little time to update Garmin Dan
Today, July first, we Canadians should be bitching about the heat and instead it was perfect, even cool for riding in full gear. Sadly those temps came with a hovering, all day cloud cover that was enough to give a rider the weather jitters.
Today was the hundred and forty-two K ride for lunch
Now to look ahead, here’s the plan … I haven’t got one. Okay, so I do plan to meet a few certain someones in the lovely State of Pennsylvania in about two weeks and I will be home by my Mom’s 96th birthday on August 12 but other than that I think I’ll head south … maybe east … maybe south again then back north and east before heading west again. Hey, whadya know, I've got a plan, now all I need is a map, some clear skies and a new pair of gloves.
A rose, by any other name ... is a worn out pair of riding gloves. I love those gloves!
Happy Canada Day. Happy Summer. Happy Riding.


  1. Karen,
    I hope your riding plans get extensive enough to require multiple pair of new gloves. Can't wait to see where your wheels take you.

    So that I don't forget, a very Happy, early Birthday to your mom.

  2. You definitely need new gloves for your adventure.

    And that lunch looks well worth a ride. Yumm. Now I am hungry and it is only 8:30 here.

  3. It sounds like you have a great summer unplanned. And that lunch looks like it was worth the ride...

  4. That sounds like a great plan! Hope you enjoy it ( jealous!)

  5. Good plan! Especially when it includes lots of miles and smiles. Enjoy the summer (best on two wheels).

  6. Why is it that just as a pair of gloves gets really comfortable, your fingers start sticking through the holes? If you decide to head north of where you are let me know and perhaps we can meet up for a coffee and/or ride together for a bit. It's been a s-l-o-w start to the riding season and I need to catch up!

  7. Karen:

    It's nice to have an unplanned plan. You could actually just cut the tips of those gloves off, and Voila ! A recycled pair of summer gloves, or keep as a spare.

    Have many miles of smiles and clear, cool weather
