Another morning Ride

Decided to ride around the Church parking lot in Goodlettsville.  Another 2.3 miles.
I am loading a picture of the accessory mount I mentioned in last blog post.

Accessory Mount

The Kett has no place to mount accessories needed.  I bought a Terracycle Vertical Mount ( and attached it to my left handle bar.  This has given me room to mount a bell, horn, GPS and a mirror so far. Being left handed it is really nice to have all this close at hand.  It is a quality piece of equipment.

I am not riding today, a little sick.

Ride by the river

Got up early this morning around 5 o'clock and my daughter and I went riding at about seven. Went to Shelby Park and rode the Shelby Park Greenway. We cycled from Shelby Park to the Cumberland River bridge I was unable to climb the entrance to the bridge on the Shelby Park side so that will be an excursion for another time . We traveled 5.75 miles with an average speed of 3.6 mph.  I nice, leisurely ride with my Daughter.  She rides a Trek upright.

Have Fun, Get Fit, Stay Safe!

Old Edge 205

I hooked up my old Garman Edge 205 to the computer and Garmin found it, installed it and upgraded the software.  Garmin connect keeps track of a lot of the riding data from each day's ride.  So if you have an old Garmin around use it. You can even buy batteries if yours is dead and handlebar connectors if yours are broken.   I rode a mile and a quarter this morning on the streets close to home.  I like this Kett a lot! Really like the USS.

Have fun, Get fit, Stay safe!

Riding Again!

Since coming  back from Europe I have been riding at least a half hour a day. Been having to do it early in the morning because of the heat. I have been installing a few items on my Trike. I will take a picture of them and post them the next few days. I am really excited about the mountain gears on this trike, they are very useful around the house because we have hills in all directions.

Have fun, get fit, stay safe!

It's been a long time... but a new post!

It has been 3 years to the day since my last post!  I am getting my trike out an putting it back into riding condition.  A neighbor down the street stopped by and asked me about my trike. I realized I have not ridden it in two years.  I am missing out on the fun!  Will keep you appraised of my progress.
Ride Safe, get in shape!

Nashville aims to improve road safety for people who ride bicycles

By Tom Wilemon | The Tennessean March 19, 2012

With miles of new bike lanes and more people cycling to work, the city of Nashville wants to improve safety through "Moving in Harmony," a new campaign to teach both motorists and bikers how to share the roads.

The campaign will include billboards to raise awareness, safety programs and ground-level attention to problem areas. It is one of the initiatives that received funding through a grant Metro Public Health Department received from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention aimed at confronting obesity. Besides educating people about bike lanes, the program also aims to make the city a safer place to walk.

Mayor Karl Dean's Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee plans to have the campaign in full swing by May.

"As we make these changes, it is important that we educate drivers, cyclists and pedestrians on how to safely share our roads and walkways," Dean said. "The more we can get residents to bike and walk, the more we improve our health, our transportation system and our environment, which are all important to me."

In the past 10 years, the city has added 133 miles of bike lanes and shared routes as well as 200 miles of sidewalks. But many motorists did not know the rules for bike lanes and shared routes.

"We're also working with a number of neighborhood associations that have specific concerns -- one of them being the Belmont Hillsboro neighborhood association," said Marne Duke, communications coordinator with Metro Health. "There is a very popular bike lane on Belmont Boulevard that continues to have issues with motorists going around other cars that are turning and using the bike lane as a way to do that. A car is never supposed to be in the bike lane."

There are also eight educational projects to teach more vulnerable groups, such as children and the elderly, about ways to better protect themselves.
