...Bike somewhere every day for 30 days—around the block, 20 miles to work, whatever suits you—then share your adventures online." From

I first learned about 30 days of biking from Kent'sBike blog after reading his wonderful blog posts from last year.  I knew I would enjoy the riding--I'm not too sure about the blogging part--I kind of feel like a Kindergartener with a fat crayon.    

Kent added a new twist this year to his 30 days posts--each day he would blog about a letter in the alphabet.  Today's letter is A which got me thinking about my "A" for the day:  Age and cycling.  I'm happy to ride with any one of any age but have often wondered where are all the woman my age?  I know you are out there...

In fact, any tour you do with WomanTours is likely to have a great group of woman often over 50.  I recently had the pleasure of riding with Woman Tour's founder Gloria Smith who started WomanTours almost 20 years ago because she wanted to find other women over 50 to ride with.  

                          Gloria Smith (L) with Donna in matching jerseys.  Still riding strong into her 70's.

So, if there are woman with a few miles on them living in Seattle--let's ride together in the next 29 days!

Finally, about today's ride:  I came home from the desert with a cold, so decided to just run errands for today's ride.  My bike computer cable snapped during transit so I don't have exact mileage.  It was amazing how quickly one can get things done on the bike:   post office, used book store, bank, library.  The sun is shining now, but I did get a bit wet.  Here's the reading on our informal rain gauge from the last day or two--we emptied it afterwards:

                                                That's about 2-1/4 inches
It's going to be wet this week--Let's Roll anyway!
