    After work, my bike was calling my name. As it was too late for caffeine, I headed off to my friends: the wheat field and the power pole. One of the advantages of touring around on a bike is how easy it is to jump off and take a couple of pictures. For once, the…

    Today I completed a 5K. No, not a 5-kilometer race, but 5,000 miles on my bike since my family gave it to me on Fathers’ Day 2013. Yeah, it’s hard for me to believe, too. :-) Ride on!
