We had a lovely ride this morning; temps were comfortable in the mid-50s, the sky was deep blue, the air was calm and crisp. It was one of those days where we didn’t really have anywhere to go, but we were looking for an excuse to ride, so we headed up to the coffee shop to sip some joe and bask in the oddly-temperate weather.
And why do we share our little anecdotes with you, and why would you care?
See, we’re just an average, middle class couple — a soccer mom and an office worker. We’re not athletically remarkable, we’re not particularly adventurous, and some might even say we live a sheltered life. Yet, we’re able to live car-lite in suburban America with three teenagers and a 60-mile round-trip commute. The point being that if we can do it, just about anybody can do it. The highest hurdle is believing you can do it. So by sharing our stories here, and making ourselves seen in the community, we hope to speak to what can be done, and show people that they can do it too.
