This from P alone: The cross roads in the valley are always quieter.  This is Oakville

I began this year with a  goal:  to ride my bicycle at least 5,000 miles over the course of the year.  This was quite a challenge, given the number of miles I traveled on airplanes (135,000+ through today) and the fact that I was not only running my own business, but also teaching two classes at the local college.

But success is mine!  This week I rode a number of days when the temps dropped down into the high 30's and watched with glee/relief as the odometer on the bike rolled  over 5,000 miles for the year...and it's now over 62,000 miles since I bought my Bianchi Giro about thirteen years ago. 

Now if the weather would just warm up, I'd love to get on the bike and go for a ride...
