I've been "bikeless" since completing my cross country ride after donating the bike I completed my ride on to an Air Force Veteran in North Carolina. Not riding has been really difficult after completing a 3,600 + mile ride over 3 months. I've felt like a fish out of water! My very fist mountain bike purchased new in 1986, a Raleigh Elkhorn was in the back of my shed and in rough shape. I contacted a local mobile bike repair business and they worked their magic to bring my bike back to life! I jokingly refer to it as my "urban destroyer" and it's so great to be back on a bike again! Over the Labor Day holiday it took "U.D" out for my first ride since September of 2017. WOW!!!! Words can't describe the joy I felt! The fire is once again lit and my mind is racing with ideas for my next adventure! It's incredible how cycling can be such an important and enjoyable part of life!
