I was riding late Friday afternoon and realized March 1st marks the three month anniversary of Mamá‘s passing. It’s been difficult, to say the least.


The Holidays weren’t the Holidays. January and February - always difficult months - were particularly tough. Motivation, drive & enthusiasm have been missing...except for the sanctuary of riding bikes.

Like the transition from pavement to gravel, winter to spring, life is a series of transitions. Here’s to the coming spring, summer & beyond.
