Lorie, and you are one of mine. Thanks so kindly. I just got diagnosed with OA in my left hip (NO WONDER it was pissed off) and now that becomes yet another negotiation. I am now pointing myself at next summer, where I will be riding for four weeks in the Northern Rockies. My god, what an adventure that will be. I can’t wait. Let’s please continue to live out loud, proud and happy! Good for you!!! As I lost my brother to suicide, and he was a great adventurer, I am also blazing a path in his name. Why not? We get our inspiration wherever we can. Cycle on sister. Next year I am going to break in my MTB!
