"I want to ride my bicycle...

...I want to ride my bike. I like to ride my bicycle. I want to ride it where I like!" (-song by Queen)

Whether it be on Carbonville Road...

(Katy and I took this route manyearly mornings in '94, where I think my love for the two wheeled thrill began)

Or in St. George on the Bear Claw Poppy Trail...

John took me there for our 10th Anniversary in 2010.

Together we have biked the San Rafael, Rock Canyon in Provo, Logan Canyon, Dimple Dell in SLC, Lambert Park in Highland, Moab, and more. After our trip south,I told John we could pretty much say we had completed LOTAGEO.

Because of baseball and other obstacles, we didn't make it to the Lunatic Triathalon in Price this year. We saved some money and took a ten miler here in Lehi for free. Afterwards the whole family biked to Dennys for a scrumptious breakfast. This was one of my best memories of the season.

I love family bike rides!!! John was speaking my love language when he bought me a bike trailer one year for Mom's day. Here we are (below) on our traditional Labor Day ride. John took us to Daybreak where he works and afterwards treated us to a pizza picnic.

The chill in the air and the pending snow signal for me an end to prime biking season. It is always a sad day when we take the bikes out of the nifty wood rack crafted by John and hang them high in the garage.

Once while we were dating John surprised me with a bicycle tune up. I began to see that this guy had skills, valuable skills. And now - here we are - a whole row of bikes later... WHAT A RIDE!
