Kicking Off The June Challenge

I think there are more than a hundred possiblities for this month’s challenge. I fear that might almost be TOO much to handle, and as I said, some of them might require some advance-planning. I did some planning in advance for today’s post. As a result, I was able to incorporate a couple of June 1st celebrations:

June 1st has some weird celebrations.

I picked up a jar of olives while on my ride (along with a few items for tonight’s stir fry dinner.) What better way to celebrate National Olive Day than to eat a few California olives while on a bike break? Also, in recognition of National Baby Boomer’s Day, the thing holding two olives in this photo is the hand of a baby boomer. One more thing too: I was secure with the knowledge that if one of those olives were to get lodged in my throat, today is Heimlich Maneuver Day.

Today is also World Milk Day. I could have picked up some milk along with the olives, but milk doesn’t travel well in a pannier. I can drink water, Gatorade and beer warm, but not milk. My plan was to take some pictures around our local dairy.

Milk is one of my favorite beverages, and I’m lucky to be one of those folks who have a digestive system able to handle it.

Moving on to one of the month-long celebrations: This one is super, super, super, super EASY. I’m pretty sure every one of my posts will include something related to Great Outdoors Month. After all, I am the self-appointed pope and high priest of The Church of the Great Outdoors. I go to that church pretty much every day.

I see it’s also World Narcissist Abuse Day today. I’m scared.

Hi. My name is Greg and I ride my bike a lot. That is to say, I ride my bike almost every day. I go on long rides and short rides. Sunny rides, cloudy rides, and rainy rides. I like commuting, errand-running, day-tripping, overnighting, and touring on my bike. I ride on city streets, highways, gravel, single track, and snow with equal enthusiasm. Sometimes I ride fast and sometimes I ride slow. I try to keep my feet on the pedals at stop lights and I do not dismount when I hop up on a curb. I have a roadie bike, a mountain bike and a touring bike. I try to accept any challenge a bike ride can throw at me without complaint. But I don't like bugs.

    Great start!
    Now I think we all have a better idea of what we can do, at least I do.
