Meet our new bicycle friends
On February 28th 2003 I purchased my first adult bicycle.
Since I weighed almost more than my 250 production motorcycle race bike I decided to lose some weight.
Here is that story:
The Rookie.
So what's March Magic?

It's is a crazy thing a guy named Bill Dunn thought up.
Sign up for has many miles has you think you can ride your bicycle in the month of March. Everyone can keep track of everyone else’s chart.
It’s not a race it’s not a competition other than with yourself.
Simple huh?
So I signed up Kathy for 300 miles and me for 750 miles!! Stupid maybe?
Friday Feb 27th I road a total of 60 miles, Saturday 28th I rode 13 miles and Sunday 29th I rode 33 miles, 106 miles in three days EASY…wish they counted.
My plan was to ride a planned schedule that would reward me with about 765 miles if followed strictly.
Kathy is home in Oklahoma for maybe a week or more because of family emergency, she cannot ride at all and I am taking care of the shop from 7 to 5
February 29th I get ready I am going to ride the bicycle back and forth from work netting about 8 mile going and a longer loop of 19 miles coming home for 27 miles or so.
I load up my gear, Get the bike prepared and I am mentally ready to go for this crazy goal.

So here is March 1st 6:30 AM and RAINING!!!
So follow along with me on this 750 mile odyssey.
