Scouting Erie Canal


This past weekend I was in upper New York State to check out the Erie Canal for the upcoming summer cycling tour. There is still snow on the ground but I can tell the trail will be a winner…..take a look at this summer tour – click on the cycling tab at the top of the page. Still room for a few more!

Our 2015 Cycling Season is Almost Here

In less than a month our 2015 cycling season will begin…..are you ready to ride?

Check out your bike….Take a look at your tires – any bald spots or excessive wear?  Check that your spare inner tube is in good condition (look for cracks and wear).  Is your seat tight (bike seat that is)?  Check the handlebars, brakes, shifters ……clean and lube your chain.  

Next check out your helmet… it in good condition? If not then replace it this season – you are worth it. 

Hope to see you out this season…..the April calendar and the 2015 Cyclopath Cycling Club info is now on this blog… on the Cycling tab at the top of the page!

Yearning for the old days…..

It is Friday afternoon and I just finished teaching a class at college….I walked into my classroom and said “Good afternoon everyone”  but no one responded.                                     I looked out at my students —  all with their heads down looking at their phones… chit chat, no eye contact, no response.  Makes me yearn for the old days before cell phones and iPads……Sometimes it is just so nice to talk to someone!  Have a great weekend everyone and remember reach out to someone and have a chat! ATT00001
