  • Biking in the Rain

    Earlier this week, I toted my bike to Sacramento so I could ride to work in Folsom. Sacramento has great bike paths that I didn’t want to miss. My Folsom bike commute is about 5.5 miles each way, only an additional mile over my newer, longer commute route in Hillsboro. And I must admit, the…

    Riding Under the Influence of Rain

    Standing up in my cube mid-afternoon, I glanced out the windows. What?! Rain? Oops! I had gone home during lunch to take the car to Suzi and work from home. Checking the weather report and seeing no rain predicted for a couple of days, I figured I’d try out my new rear fender, front and…
