Mid-wash

(cross-posted from my other blog, Food for My Daughters) I ride my bike to drop off a copy of my book, Food for My Daughters, to a friend who had given hers away years ago and wanted to reread it (as it’s increasingly relevant again now). She lives by the elementary school that her children…

More relevant than ever

My books Food for My Daughters and Traveling at the Speed of Bike are more relevant than ever, it seems. And your support is greatly appreciated. As always, all proceeds are funneled back to help others. Thanks.

“Friend loop”

Trying to jazz up my Traveling at the Speed of Bike outings (limited to my 4 x 3 mile slice of suburbia during these COVID-19 shelter-in-place days), I put together a 14-mile loop yesterday that took me up and down hills past seven of my friends’ home (at which I tucked a little note in their…

Our governor said two days ago, on April 1st, that he just found out that people without symptoms could spread the virus. And that wasn’t even an April…

The hill of fear

My body camera slips downward and I don’t realize until I get home that it captures my ascent up the steepest hill (of many) on my regular route Traveling at the Speed of Bike around my suburb-city, where I’m on week three of sheltering-in-place due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is a hill that once…
