A new month, a new challenge? But that question wasn’t the real reason for this post.
In the wake of being asked to remove all my posts from the cgoab site, I have been thinking about what to do with the many journals that have only been published there and no where else. Jeff over at Cycleblaze offered to transfer any touring journals I have to the Cycleblaze collection. I am very thankful for that. Some were already there, but not all.
I have other journals, the coffeeneuring challenges from 2017 and 2018 for example, which would be completely out of context on Cycleblaze. I didn’t want to lose the journals or just have them exist as zip files on my hard drive, so I have been recreating them on my own website. It’s been a wearisome job of copying and pasting, setting up links, editing and re-formatting photos. This also led to the necessity of reorganizing my website. I’m not finished but for the time being I have spent enough hours at the computer.
When I revisited my earlier coffeeneuring challenge journals, I saw how the first challenge got me into cycling again. Until then I had been touring, but at home I limited my riding to shopping and errands around town. The March 2017 Challenge changed that. Furthermore, I got to know a lot of nice people there! You know who you are. It was such a good idea to create Cycle365 as a new home for our day rides and challenges.
I guess I just wanted to say thank you to all of you for keeping Cycle365 alive and active.
