Mr. Grumby Finally Hits the Bricks

After several false starts, I finally got back on the bike today. Jen’s mom had a bad fall in March and we’ve been spending much of our time on “Judy Duty” (Jen’s mom is Judy), so not much time for riding .

We rode to a park in Littleton, ate lunch and rode home. Hopefully this will spur me to get off my ass and on the bike more often.

I’m enjoying all the challenge posts so far!

I am a veteran of one long bike tour along the Lewis & Clark and TransAmerica trails during the summer of 2018, and numerous shorter tours around Oregon. I'm currently settled in suburban Denver with Mrs. Grumby and am looking forward to exploring Colorado by bicycle.

    It’s always good to get out on the bike – even for a short ride – glad you got in a bit of pedaling time. Best wishes for a speedy recovery for Judy.

      Thanks! Yes, it’s nice to get a ride in. We’re planning a many more now that spring has arrived and Jen’s mom is back home.

    Good that you got a bike ride in. Riding always lifts the spirits, even short distances,don’t you think?

      It was nice to get out. The bikes have looked so lonely sitting in the apartment gathering dust.

    A bike ride seems to clear the head as well as feel good on the body! I did a ride yesterday that did just that and felt so much better about things going on in my life! Best wishes for Judy — and for you and Jen.

    Similar to Judy Duty, I’ve been Gone With Ron for the last week. My dad is Ron. He’s 85 years old and can’t fly, so I drove him from Iowa to his childhood best friend’s funeral in Baltimore. Two days and a thousand miles there, two nights in Baltimore, and two days and a thousand miles back. It was a short time, to be sure, but a trying time. We had plenty of fun, including my very first Chesapeake Bay crab cakes, and I’m very glad we had that time together. But I’m glad to be re-united with my bike today.
