Well, here we go!  I'm a single grandmother who loves to ride my bike.  I've only had it for a couple of years, since 2013, but since the day I got my bike everything has come full circle.


I lost myself a long time ago, but I didn't really understand what had happened.  I kind of sold my soul for something I thought was in the best interest of my daughter.  Turns out I took the wrong path.  I lost my friends, my dreams, my bike, and my self.  But enough about that - I'm back!  (It only took 25 years.)


I've been married once, but not till I was 40, and that only lasted a few years.  I've been in a few somewhat long term relationships, and a couple of those guys were awesome!  But things change, people grow (or don't), circumstances change.  What you want and need from this life definitely changes as the years go by.  So now I find myself on my own with a grown daughter who's so amazing, an incredible son-in-law, and three grandchildren who are all so unique that I don't even know where to start!


I take trips.  They can be epic sometimes, and they're usually solo.  I've travelled to Australia, five times, Costa Rica three times, Italy, northern Ontario, all over the United States, taken cruises, done the 'all-inclusive' thing a whole bunch, and there's still more to come.


Travel has taken on a new meaning now.  I'll pass on the all-inclusive, thanks, and take the bike instead.  I have a great job that allows me to ride all over southwestern Ontario, putting on average 10,000 km's a year.  That might not seem like a lot to some of you, but when you can only ride for about 7 or 8 months out of the year, it's not too shabby.  My last day riding was Boxing Day, 2014, and my first day in 2015 was Easter Weekend.


So it's time to get back in the saddle and find the roads with the curves, plan my work day around, and see what trouble I can try to stay out of. 


When we meet, I'll be the chatty one, who forgot to put her mascara on.  My bike will be dirty, but really pretty, and if it's near dinner time, please let me cook.  I'll take over anyway, whether it's a fire pit, barbecue, or anywhere there's a kitchen.
