I enjoy riding my bike – most of the time. Today was a day (104 miles through the desert with 3,600 feet of climbing) that I was VERY glad to see the end of the ride. Still, it was what I signed up to did, and the experience of being on the ride continues to be one of the high points of my year.

I woke this morning wondering what would my blog would be about. I decided to list things that I am thankful on this trip.
4:00 AM I woke up this morning based on my natural clock of waking up at 7:00 on the east coast. It is a good feeling to wake up and understand any obstacles in or challenges put in your path are the way of the Lord. With your belief in him, you can truly live life without fear. He will never give you more than you can handle. Thankful.
I am reminded that a special someone once told me the Fuller Center Bike Adventure isn’t about the ride, it is about the people. Let me tell you, it is a beautiful image to take in a sea of cyclists in orange jerseys float across the pavement amidst the tall trees and intermittent ocean views in the morning sun.
