A WHirlwind day of THrills & CHills, GHastly RHetoric and other SHocking PHenomena

It was an utterly amazing day of riding here in MY Town, which is sometimes known as SHangri-la. Chimneys and CH, SH, TH, WH, RH, PH and GH words jumped out at me from every direction. I took several hundred pictures and I’m going to share every one of them with you in this post. … Continue reading "A WHirlwind day of THrills & CHills, GHastly RHetoric and other SHocking PHenomena"

My Longest and Most Successful January Challenge Day Yet

The obvious reason for my great success is the warm weather MY Town was blessed with today. The temperature rose up to the mid-30’s (or should I say, the mid-1’s for the benefit of my international friends) and there was no wind. As a result, I was able to ride longer than I can when … Continue reading "My Longest and Most Successful January Challenge Day Yet"

Some Serious Business and Some Silly Business

Serious Business Regarding the January Challenge As I announced earlier in the month, the January Challenge is going to be all about CHIMNEYS. As I also announced, I came up with the idea independent of any chimney suggestions from certain members of Cycle365. The Czar has spoken.

No, they’re ACTIONS. They aren’t verbs though. They’re “gerunds,” which are kind of like … Continue reading "MONTHLY CHALLENGE LETTERS IN ACTION (Starring Anatomy Award Winning Actor, Director, Screenwriter & Cinematographer Gregory S. Garceau)"

QUITE A QUANTITY OF Q’S: Testing the Limits of Quedibility

I thought the Queen of Dairy’s home (The Dairy Queen store) was going to be a slam dunk for today’s Q quest, but for some reason the Dairy Queen Corporation decided to eliminate the words “dairy” and “queen” on their locations in favor of “DQ.” I rode around the entire place looking for one single … Continue reading "QUITE A QUANTITY OF Q’S: Testing the Limits of Quedibility"
