It's Pedaling Season


Riding Tilda-Hilda gives me the opportunity to think. Riding her also lets me not think, if that's what I need at the moment. Thank goodness that I have Tilda-Hilda. She has been with me for almost 13 years. By golly,  gee, she's the oldest bicycle I've ever owned.

As some of you know, I signed up for the National Bike Challenge to keep me motivated to take Tilda-Hilda out of the garage. The challenge runs from May to September. Its goal is to sign up 100,000 riders who all together will pedal 75 million miles by the end of the challenge. As of the 15th day, 32,181 riders have signed up and we have pedaled 2,322,172 miles. Tilda-Hilda and I have gone out six of the 15 days thus far, pedaling 48.3 miles. Whooo-hooo!

The past two weeks, the mornings have started in fog so Tilda-Hilda and I haven't gone out as much. The fog lifted by mid-morning today, so, weather may be changing. We shall see.

I'm linking up with Seasons, a weekly meme hosted by Jeanette of St Germain's Blog. Click here to join along and/or check out the other participants.

  4. Me thinks it's great your doing this challenge with Tilda Hila - and she's PINK! Somehow I had another color in mind for you - a strong color, like red, or bright blue0 anyway, hope that Tilda Hila will bring you to your goal - and many thanks sharing this withSEASONS - Can't wait what news you'll have next week! Enjoy:) Jesh StG

    1. Red or bright blue, interesting, Jeanette. My first bike was a bright blue Schwinn. Loved that guy. I bought Tilda-Hilda because she was the only girl cruiser in the store. I thought about painting her orange or yellow, but that was before she revealed her name in all of her pink glory. :-)

  5. I think the last time I rode a bike must be at least 25 years ago ! In the Netherlands where my son lives in average there are 5 bicycles per household !!! They do everything by bike ! I get crazy there !

    1. Thanks, Ida. Some moments, like now, I simply want to run away on Tilda-Hilda.

  10. My uncle used to call it the "Tule Fog." is that the term you use?
    I enjoy riding bicycles, but - i choose walking - so my pupster can safely go along. I sure enjoy photos and stories with Tilda-Hilda in them - but then, i treasure everything you share.

    1. Tule fog is what I call thick, can't see beyond your hand, fog. Spooky fog.
