I was recently talked into this century ride (100 miles for non-bikers) because it looks fun, but more importantly I like the causes. All proceeds from this event go to benefit charities including Hope Communities, Colfax Community Network, Young Life and The Bridge Project. So I get to meet fun people, get some exercise, help four great causes, then be sore for three days. I put the link below for more information and hopefully you can join us. Continue reading
My summer is finally in full swing thanks to the completion of the Ride the Rockies event last week. All in all it took 7 days, 546 miles, 33 more than originally planned because of the Royal Gorge Fire and about 19,000 calories burned, if you’re counting at home. This was my first RTR ride since I didn’t get enough from the Bicycle Tour of Colorado last year. Doing RTR this year was my way of kicking off my summer in Colorado. A lot of people think I’m on a 3 month vacation, but actually I’m working in between bike riding, motorcycle riding, camping and just plain being in the mountains for 3 months. I like what I do, so talking with vendors, current customers and potential clients during the day is a great way to break up being at the library, Starbucks, or on my bike.
I’ll be writing lots more throughout the summer and maybe some of the things I do can create a little inspiration on your side. If you haven’t read 4 Hour Work week then I highly recommend it. It’s interesting and provides plenty of ideas how to save time and not get too caught up in the rat race.
