I really realy dislike owners of dogs that allow them to be barkers and aggressive

Totally irresponsible

Killer!!!!


I did not hear my alarm this morning, so I am taking a early evening ride.  I took the "weight training" gear off of my bike for this ride.  I wanted to see what the road conditions were on Walker Decker Station Road after a ...

90 Miles before the first and I will have hit Platinum before the start of #NationalBikeChallenge

970 mile in 72 days or 13.5 per day average.

Have been working on bumping that up to 20+
Goal is to have 30+ for 120 days

Well really the goal is to have incredible fun and share with like minded bicyclists.

I have committed to riding each day. Got a 1.5 mile block lap I do minimally.  So far so good Day 112. Not sure I will ride as hard as last year, averaged 1000 with 1220 max. We'll see...Averaging 126 monthly so far with a 300 due this month.

As a Christian and Human, I pray I never hate like these Freedom of Religion Types.

I pray they will open thier heart to Jesus and go back to the core, LOVE.

I am fortunate to have only read about that same venomous rhetoric that echoed during equality during the civil war and civil rights.

Not disheartening as those types obviously are no where close to my beliefs.

Just dislike for thier views and the damages they are incurring to so many beautiful humans

If the average person biked to work or shopping once every two weeks instead of driving, we could prevent the pollution of close to one billion gallons of gasoline from entering the atmosphere every year.

fair comment - systematic failure is an issue in many towns in many countries.

I'm not saying I am Chuck Norris, however, we are never in the same room together.
Introduction
My life changed a couple years ago and I have been enjoying it since then.  
And it has changed again and I pray it never stops changing.
Was really bummed out and moved to FLA, thought for sure this would be short lived as well as I.
Then I realized, I was in heaven and have been given a completely brand new start, so what to do.
While walking Mikayla, I realized I want to LIVE.
Plain and Simple- Live
Good things really only come to those that can recognize them and bad things to those that want them.
Only accepting what I can see and all that I see is GOOD.

INCREDIBLE!!!!!! Went there to just buy scallops, walked away with new seafood company. I am a good cook, however, there is no talent needed to make quality food when you start with INCREDIBLE base ingredients!!!

This is a little winded, so if you just want a quick read- Cant get any better. A few months ago, after 10 yrs, my Gary Fisher Dual Sport 29 had a catastrophic failure. To the point where Trek got involved. I have never like Trek, not for any particular reason, just not my company. Anyhow, to get resolve, I was told that I should contact a Trek store and I finally settled on ABC Bicycles. If you have lost a bike after a long life together, you can understand, you may not be in the best of frame of minds. This did not phase Michelle, who was my initial contact. She worked with me and assisted when my original bike shop in Texas was not so friendly. She then introduced me to Rick, Mikey and more. They all helped me in getting into a Trek Gary Fisher, which did not appeal as again, no likey Trek. This has been a few months ago, my bike and I have gotten over 1200 miles, wheelset replacement (warranty) and more. I feel that this bike is no longer a replacement but an addition to me, and yes I am warming to Trek. This past weekend, after a considerable amount of conversations, decided road bikes are not for me and we all discussed my new progression. That progression is to take this to the top, so we started with a new lower bracket bearing. The plan is to top this out, then work on either another bike or custom bike predicated on all the loves here. More than likely, that will take another 10 yrs or longer. What I am getting at here, not one of us can truely do what we do without friends, co workers, etc... those that all make up "our" team. ABC Bicycles, they have become my team of teams when it comes to my two wheeled journey. Every single person at that shop is on your team and will share in the ups and downs and help you to always get on the upside. Highly Recommend !!!!

The food was absolutely incredible, however, the service seems to be intentionally rude. Recommend highly for the menu NOT Recommended for the service, it is just rude. The sad thing, the Chef is very aware which leads me to believe it is just that way so take it or leave it.

Today was my second time here and again, the quality is impeccable. Quality of service, care, choice, accommodations, and products.

Needed to find something for a No Fear teenager. Found it. Dane and his aircraft brought a smile worth every bit of the cost and then double or more. Dane took the time to show us both all what was in store for my boy, then off they went. This is the first thing my boy has been on that brought back more smiles than anything else. All he talked about that night, was his flight. If you have a teen, that is an impression worthy of just about anything!!.. Recommend for anyone from the Not Skeered to the Heck No, Dane is a pure professional.
