You could be the next me!

DSC_0067_3 Do you think you have what it takes to be the next Woman Who Rides?

Step right up!  Trek is holding tryouts! 

Do you sing, dance, juggle or maybe you have sexy legs, nice hair, and can run a 4 minute mile. 

Trek is looking for all kinds of women.   

You don't really need to sing and dance, or any of that stuff.  In fact, it requires no special talent at all.   

If you are a female age 21 or older, and ride a bicycle, you're perfect.  Click here for the contest details. 

Don't waste any time...you only have till January 24th.

Home for the Holidays!

Moval Just in case I don't post anything this week...you will know.  Bill and I are leaving for California tomorrow.  We are visiting my family for the holidays and we are so excited! 

Minneapolis current temperature is -13 degrees, and Moreno Valley current temperature is 43 degrees.  43 degrees is warm!  I know Marie recently posted about the cold weather in California, but come on...that is not cold. 

You haven't lived at all- till you have lived through a Minnesota winter!

Minnesota's cold winters are kind of growing on me...almost like bragging rights.  Still, we are very excited to be going to sunny California for a week.

Have a safe and happy holiday season!

Did you know?

Did you know that the first official day of Winter is not until the 21st of December?  


That is this Sunday.  

I never knew that...just found out the other day. 

I thought below zero temperatures, icicles, and constant snowfall qualified as being winter. 

Guess not.

Who decided that December 21st would be the first day of Winter?
  

I'd like to sit down and have a little chat with who ever it was.

Merry "Cold"mas

DSC_0167 It is typical for things to get really cold this time of year in Minnesota.  I feel like it was just yesterday that it was zero degrees outside...oh wait, it was zero degrees outside yesterday. 

I have still tried to ride my bike to work everyday.  If it is a really cold day, my fingers get so cold that for the rest of the day the tips of my fingers are sore. Probably not a good sign.  I have warm gloves, but they are no match for the fierce Minnesota winter.  I think I'll get some of those packets of hand warmers.  You know, the little things you open up and they stay warm for a couple hours, and then you throw them away. They should do the trick.

This is a picture from outside my house a couple days ago.  It was about 8:00am and as you can see, the sun has just come up.  The snow is beautiful...and it is not going to melt for another five months or more...YEAH!

I hope you are having a wonderful, and hopefully warmer holiday season.

Keep riding!

A Photo Shoot

We went out to take some photos with some friends the other day. Thanks Chrissy and Randy, we had fun!  It was really cold and our fingers were freezing, so it didn't last very long.  I think we got a couple of good shots though.  Here they are!

Fun times.  We are sure enjoying the snow and cold weather here in Minnesota.  Not a lot of biking going on right now...I am such wimp when it comes to the cold.
