I started cycling 15 years ago for the exercise.
Motto: Slow and steady is the way to go.
I now spend a lot of time on the trail as a volunteer.
I like to travel as well, normally by car but for the long distances I will fly.
Rain all day, I was out for a 45 minute walk late afternoon in the local woods. About a dozen trees down but not all on the trail. A couple of the big ones fell away from the trail. A couple just tipped out at the roots.
