Biking, border collies, and my boy.

I have a border collie named Nelly. Border collies are known for an abundance of energy and my girl is no exception. She lives to go on walks, run along-side my bike or play fetch with a frisbee. Sometimes I take her to the park to play. She somehow knows we are headed there even […]

Becoming

A few days ago, I was looking for a particular photograph when I came across a picture of me that a friend took while we were on a bike ride last May. I audibly gasped when I saw it because it is a terrible picture of me. I look so fat in it. I’m a […]

The Century

Sometime around mid march, I decided that I was going to stop contemplating, and finally do a century (100 miles) ride on my bike. I have wanted to check this off my life’s to-do list ever since I started riding a road bike. I sat down and mapped out a training schedule, setting aside enough […]

No turning back

Ever since I said out loud that I plan to ride 100 miles on my bike, I have this little voice in my head that is telling me I’m crazy. You’re too slow…you’re too fat…you haven’t ridden enough…that’s a really long way…that’s a long time to be on a tiny seat…what if you can’t make […]

i declare.

Today I went on the first longish bike ride of the season. I rode 25 miles on the Legacy trail near my house. I have decided to do my very first century ride (100 miles!) this June. I hesitate to even say that publicly, because I meant to do it two years ago, but I […]

glorious weekend in God’s country

I submit that there is no better way to spend a late September Saturday than riding a bike through Yellowstone. Perfect weather. Perfect time of year. Perfect leisurely ride. I think there were about 12 girls that went up altogether. The mastermind behind this trip, Elle, has access to an awesome cabin in Island Park […]

Guess what came in the mail?

It’s a Kelly-cam! I can’t wait to use this thing. I am going to Yellowstone in September for a bicycle tour and this helmet camera is going to help me record it all. Yellowstone in the fall? What could be better? Yellowstone in the fall on a bike, that’s what! Buy the The Happy Helmet […]

Road Trip

There was a bike race in Meridian, Idaho this past weekend so Shelby and I loaded up our bikes and hit the road. I loved the 5 hour drive/chat with my dear friend. We stayed with Shelby’s sister who happens to live in Meridian and we had so much fun with her. Kinda makes me […]

Last Week

Last week was a blur, but the highlight was the weekend for sure. Friday, I headed up to Cache Valley to set up a booth to sell some of my cycling themed jewelry at the annual Little Red Riding Hood bike ride. The event was Friday and Saturday both, but I couldn’t man my booth […]

Posting from Monticello!

We have some friends who live in Monticello, UT which is very close to Moab, Canyonlands, Mesa Verde and a bunch of other beautiful places to visit. I knew that Koryn has been riding her bike a lot and I really wanted to come down here and ride with her in this beautiful area. I […]

Goldlilocks. Not too hard. Not too soft. Just right.

It was an early morning. I had to be up by 4:30 am in order to get to the Goldilocks bike ride on time. I was setting up a booth to sell some of my cycling-themed jewelry and it all had to be set up by 6. With the help of some friends, it all […]

Today was glorious

It was the first truly warm day in so long. 73 degrees I think. Perfect. I had an idea for a little adventure this morning. After sending all of my boys off to school, a friend and I were to ride our bikes 20 miles to Layton City where we would get on the Front […]

Hello, old friend. It’s been a while, and I’ve missed you. It’s 54 degrees out today. What do you say, you and I go out and get reacquainted?

soon

I was watching a game show a while ago. At least, I think it was a game show. I never watch game shows, but whatever I was watching was something where people win stuff. The prize this time was a vacation package. It included a new bicycle, cycling wardrobe, airfare, and a guided bike tour […]
