Welcome to my Cycling Over 60 blog.    First off … “60” is not a speed but age group 🙂    My current goal is to bike, fully self contained, from my cabin in Lake City, CO, back to my home in Fort Worth.   If this trip goes well then, who knows, maybe try a trip across America!

So the question has been put forth to me many times,  “Why?  You must be crazy!”    Well … no, I’m not crazy because “my mother had me tested”! 🙂

Basically, the reason is the challenge it has for me.   I am not in that great of shape and my journey is almost a “boot camp” for getting in shape.   As I’m now over 60, I look forward to having time to reflect on my life.

    Jon, Sounds like a ton of fun. Be safe. Drink more water than you think you need. Steer clear of the crazy mountain drivers! Susan

    Very excited for you Jon! Pretty cool. Takes some guts to even attempt a trip like this. Be careful. I look forward to reading the blog as the days go by. Wildfire. Good name. But I thought that’s what you would be saying about your thighs after a day or two going thru the mountains!
