About 2 years ago, my husband bought me a road bike. I have ridden many rides (one with Stacey), and plan to ride many more.
1) June 2008, Little Red Riding Hood, 38 miles (if I remember right).
2) June 2008, MS Tour, 40 miles
3) August 2008, ULCER (Utah Lake Epic Century Ride), 30 miles.
4) June 2009, Little Red Riding Hood, 46 miles
5) August 2009, ULCER, 95 miles
These are just some of the registered rides (that I can remember). All throughout the nice weather Stacey and I have (and will) cycle up (and down) Smithfield Canyon and many other places. I also started mountain biking last summer. I am not great at that one, but each bike ride (registered or not) have been so much fun. The registered rides usually make monetary donations to different charities. Every registered ride have also been fantastic and are well supported.
This season we plan on riding all of these rides above and a few more. In August, Cache Valley usually hosts a century ride. You don't need to go 100 miles but we are adding this ride to our list of rides. There are also some fun rides in Southern Utah that we plan on trying to do.
I had a doctor tell me once that cycling wasn't a good workout activity. She was right. It's a great workout activity.
Okay, I am done now!
