Dear PACE People,

This is the final post of the Pryor Area Cycling Enthusiasts Blog.  Next week I’ll be departing to my new home in Michigan.  If you want to continue the blog, please let me know and I’ll give you passwords and instructions.

Michigan is a very bicycle friendly state with miles of designated bike lanes on rural roads and a fair share of paved designated bike only trails.  This is a concept I have a hard time wrapping my feeble brain around, as I’m more accustomed to dodging dogs and rumbling across Oklahoma “chip and seal” roads, but I plan to explore and report back so that you will come up and check it out.    I’m taking reservations, so let me know when you’ll arrive at the Burger B&B in Onekama, Michigan located on beautiful Lake Michigan!   My new email for correspondence is  I promise a comfy bed, warm showers, good food, and custom touring service!  All for free!  What more could you ask for?

I am missing FreeWheel this year as our move is occurring at the same time pretty much.  This is KILLING ME, literally, as I can’t imagine a year without FreeWheel.  I’m depending on hearing a full report from my cycling family on the fun that they have.  To those of you who have faithfully cycled this event, have a wonderful time, and attack those hills for me!   And if you haven’t done FreeWheel, you are missing one of the best cycling experiences ever.   It’s time you signed up and enjoyed what Oklahoma has to offer…small towns, big hearted people and a life changing experience.

Noted author and businessman David Weinbaum said,  “The secret to a rich life is to have more beginnings than endings.”   However, as William Bridges points out, “We come to beginnings only at an end.”   To the faithful readers of the PACE blog, my sincere wish for you is that you also seek more beginnings than endings, but be happy that the journey to an end is the stuff of good times and happy trails.

See you on the road!
