I didn’t know where to go with this, and perhaps I should go nowhere! This is a non-bike thing so I looked for another page. On the forum page no one has posted there in about 5 years so I ditched that idea. Articles was the only other chance I have. Here it is — … Continue reading "FOOD RELATED"
By now, any of you that have attempted to use the site within the last 48 hours are aware that it’s experiencing significant technical difficulties. We’ve heard from most of the active users either directly or through Bill, and we’ve experienced them ourselves. And actually, at least one of these issues has been apparent to … Continue reading "Cycle365, its issues, and Team Anderson’s issues"
You all are putting me to shame with all the success you’ve been having with the scavenger hunt challenge. I’m feeling like I really need to get to work to get back on track. But this post has nothing at all to do with the challenge. As the title says, this post is about taking … Continue reading "Taking Care of Unfinished Business"
I’ve been keeping a pretty low profile for awhile – partly because I’m ashamed to admit I haven’t figured out how to restore the missing sign-in function that mysteriously disappeared awhile ago. Mostly though it’s because our calendar has been pretty full making the most of our remaining days in Portland before we hit the … Continue reading "Catching up"
One of the satisfactions of being an administrator for this website is the opportunity to bestow honors for exceptional achievement. I hereby designate Gregory Garceau the Poet Laureate for Cycle365. You may not be aware of the impressive body of work he’s been contributing to over on CycleBlaze, but the Awards Committee felt that his … Continue reading "The Poet Laureate of our cycling world"
Suzanne’s New Years resolution about staying off the bike in inclement weather and getting out to walk instead along with her latest post with beautiful photos of her walk in the snow made me anxious to go for a hike again. I know this started out as a bicycling blog but feel free to post … Continue reading "Take a Hike!"
I don’t know where to put this, so have chosen “articles’. You may well not be interested in this, but some or one of you may be, so I am sharing it with you all. Susan and I are giving it a try. There are a few rules of course ;’-). We did our first … Continue reading "ANOTHER CHALLENGE"
A story of adventure and humanity in the American heartland, The Bikes of Wrath follows five Australian friends as they attempt to cycle 2,600 kilometres from Oklahoma to California in honour of John Steinbeck’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, The Grapes of Wrath. Travelling through rural towns and communities of Middle America, the group seeks to understand … Continue reading "Off Topic — Interesting Movie"
We aren’t riding our own bikes in this post, so it’s not a challenge entry. There are plenty of bikes in the picture though, so that’s something. Think of this more as a PSA about Pesaro, a place you may not have heard of but should know about: it’s the self-declared City of Bicycles.
Back a few weeks ago, I headed over to New York State to watch over my son’s house and cat while he was away. It was great to get away (despite being without power for two days), but there was a downside. According to Vermont’s current travel restrictions, when visiting a county in a neighboring … Continue reading "Finally back out and about"
A few of you have reported experiencing failure when attempting to post very long comments. This happened to me recently also. The application doesn’t handle it gracefully – it looks like the attempt to save the comment just times out, but I think that the real problem is that the comment is longer than the … Continue reading "Comment length"
I saw this article in The Age (Melbourne newspaper) and thought everyone here could appreciate it. It’s about a guy riding every road in his neighbourhood and discovering what’s local. Melbourne has gone back to a strict lockdown where residents cannot travel more than 5kms from their homes – though this was done before the … Continue reading "‘Burbing"
July 25, 2020 Solemn After watching the Storm (Seattle Women Basketball Team) win their game against New York this morning, I got on my bike at about 11:15. There was just a little chill in the air but the sun promised warmth on the way. For whatever reason, I could not find the love in my … Continue reading "SOLEMN"
There are many women I admire, in particular for their courage, creativity, strength, audacity, determination, tenacity. March 8 is International Women’s Day. To celebrate this day on Bicycle365, I have singled out just a few outstanding women whose achievements are in the field of sports. I loved Cycling to the South Pole: A World First … Continue reading "Holiday Challenge: International Women’s Day"
Today a link to my BLOG … … … I have been neglecting my blog, it’s been over two months since my last entry. But now I again feel the need for writing there. This is where I write for myself, post the pictures I like, this is where I think the least about what … Continue reading "Riding the Loop"
As of 31 August, all US national parks have been given 30 days to implement new policies for ebikes, which have until now been prohibited on trails and bike paths in all national parks. The gist of the new regulations are thus: (1) Ebikes may be used on all park bike paths and trails which … Continue reading "Ebikes in US National Parks"
In July 2016 I started a Quest that involved visiting by bike every settlement, city, town, village and hamlet in my home county of Oxfordshire. These settlements total around 500, reviewing my details in early April of this year I found I visited just over 300 or around 60%. I hadn’t actually visited anywhere new … Continue reading "County Quest Restart"
We are visiting Mom and family in Kansas. When I booked the trip in November I was thinking “early” spring right?! Well not exactly……let’s just say there have been NO bicycles ? involved in this trip. We don’t seem to have what it takes to bike in 3-degree weather. We have walked and shoveled snow. … Continue reading "Spring In Kansas"

Suzanne asked what I wear on my hands to keep them from freezing. Here is a photo of my wind bloc fleece mittens, rain overmitts if needed, and chemical hand warmers for frozen rides ;’-). Mostly I wear the mittens alone but am always prepared with more. I find that mittens work better for me … Continue reading "Cold Hand Riding"
I know we…well I’ve, complained a bit about traffic on the bike trail lately. So,I thought I would share this text I just received from Jack?? These two lanes are on the rectrail. Have no idea how he did this? Think someone is explaining things to him. About twenty feet in front of his is … Continue reading "Well What the Heck!!!!!"
I was a little under the weather on the 21st so didn’t make it out. However, everyone under the sun was posting amazing sunset and sunrise photos on FB and other social media. As I sat on my couch last night…….I could see the color building from our window and decided I needed to get … Continue reading "A Day Late But Not A Dollar Short……Solstice Sunset"
I don’t remember my first bike ride at all, but I do have many fine memories of the fun and freedom of riding bikes at every stage of my life. I can only conclude that I never had to learn how to ride a bike because I’ve been cycling since the day I was born–much … Continue reading "A FIRST BIKE RIDE"
I learnt to ride quite late. There were no bicycles in the household and I was probably about 11 when the 24″ wheel bike in the second part of the video was owned by a friend and she taught me. The process was to go to the local park, find a grass-covered hill, put me … Continue reading "First bike(s)"
I have not been able to find exactly what I wanted for this post, but I think you will get the idea. I grew up in a rural part of Baltimore County, and I don’t ever remember having or riding a trike. I remember having a four wheeled something. Not exactly a car, and not … Continue reading "First Bike"
That is a tricycle similar to the one I graduated directly from to a 26″ bicycle — way too big for me — but with assistance from brother — learned the rudiments of balancing on 2 wheels as he followed running alongside. Problem became, I out distanced him, and confronted with a US highway … Continue reading "First Bicycle/First Solo Ride"
Our hosts inform us that the update went successfully last night. We now have an unlimited space plan, so keep those posts and pics coming. Also, let us know if you encounter any issues over the next few days. Thanks, Scott & Rachael
An update. The initial attempt at an upgrade was unsuccessful.

The website has almost blown its space limit, and we need to upgrade the service level with … Continue reading "Announcement: A space time problem (rescheduled)"
Just an FYI. Most of you probably know that the Authors page has been broken for several weeks. It was broken in an unsuccessful attempt to exclude new subscribers from the page, because of the number of spam subscribers that come our way. Bill and I are going to start over, by deleting and readding the … Continue reading "Where are all our authors?"
When I first heard that a nude bicyclist was cruising down extremely busy Highway 101 in the middle of high speed traffic in the South Bay today, I feared it would be our dear “Goddess” Kathleen, who lives nearby. Upon careful examination, it appears not to be her. Just kidding, Kathleen! (Photo from the Daily … Continue reading "Riding raw on Highway 101"
I have followed Karen Cook for years. She always takes interesting tours and has even more interesting journals. When I read on Cycle Blaze that she was heading out on a Coastal tour I connected with her to see if she was coming through Monterey. Yes…..she was. However, the day she was to be here … Continue reading "A meet up with a touring celebrity!"
Not a ride, but I thought folks might find this interesting. There is still a long way to go—passage by the California Assembly (lower house of the state Legislature), Governor’s signature, funding, work on the ground—but the California Senate (upper house of the state Legislature) has unanimously passed a bill to create the Great Redwood … Continue reading "Great Redwood Trail"
Today’s Ride of Silence in Munich The Ride of Silence is an international cycling event on the third Wednesday in May, which commemorates cyclists killed and injured on public roads. Cyclists around the world are demonstrating for more attention and safety on the road. We met at 6:30 in pouring rain – otherwise there might … Continue reading "Ride of Silence – Munich"
For the past eleven months the Main Street, Broadway, of Seaside has been closed. There has been much construction. New drainage systems, sidewalks extended with added seating, trees planted and bicycle parking added. Broadway was completely closedown for several months. This caused some of the existing businesses to shutdown……the word on the street was that … Continue reading "Cycling Into The Future"
I’ve made a slide show from the bicycle head badges I have discovered and photographed on my walks and rides around Munich. Some new, some old, some exotic – I’ve become addicted and can’t walk down the street any more without looking at each and every bike along the way. Click here for the head … Continue reading "Beautiful Bicycle Head Badges"

Shockingly, Cycle365 may have a few bugs to shake out. So you don’t all have to tell us something we already know, I’ll maintain an article listing what we’re aware of.

What’s that image coming in out of the fog? Is it a bird? Is it a plane? It’s Cycle365! Pretty corny, I’ll give you that. We’re excited though about the idea of having a community website to share our day rides and other bike-centric activities, so I’m kicking things off with a modest entry about … Continue reading "Biking out of the fog"
