Last year about this time I posted that my biking times were 2- 2 1/2 mph faster than they had been before I went RAW in dec. 2006. So this year it's even better, now that I've been RAW better than 18 mos. I just feel so strong, and my mux]scles dont' ache. it's really wonderful....so I entered the Missouri Show Me State Senior Games for people over 40, and raced my first time ever (I'm 67), in a 40K (24 mi.) road race. The good news is that I won my age category (65-69) The bad news is tat I was the only woman in my category. The good news is I beat a 57 y.o. The bad news is that a 72 y.o. woman with significant scoliosis beat me by a long shot. The good news is that it was ots of fun. I felt good all through through the race and will probably sign up again next year.
Go RAW! :D

Bike riding is my favorite exercise. It feels great to ride. :) I use my bike whenever I can for both pleasure riding and errands. I have a bike rack on the back of my bike that I find works great to roll groceries etc from store to home. I live on top of a hill that has a flat top with many shops on it and I ride for whatever rather then start my gas guzzler. At the bottom of the hill is a medium sized city with large department stores etc that I ride downhill to shop at and then I ride the bus which has a bike rack on it back home. Its amazing how many gallons of gas I save and how much fun exercise I get on the bike. Yesterday I went shopping at the bottom of the hill and on the return trip I decided to ride the bike home instead of the bus. I was amazed at the progress I have made in terms of legs and wind since last summer. I am sure a lot of that progress is due to eating raw foods (raw since Aug 1, 07) and the rest to frequent bike riding. I was able to ride most of the uphill part except for about a block of steep hill which I had to walk up. It was a great workout. I recommend everyone with a bike that is collecting dust get it out and go for a ride. :)

It is just soooo very amazing to me to be 67 y.o. and to feel myself get stronger every day on my bike, and in all other ways. I used to be the sloext in our riding group all the time, now I'm in the middle of the pack, passing people I never ysed to see until we all stopped. It's incredible! And ou're right! More people should ride their bikes. It's just great to be outside and free!

Jane-I always love reading your posts. I recently bought my first bike since childhood (I'm only 28) and am in pain every night from riding, but I love it! I don't live in a very biker friendly area, but I still try to bike wherever it is possible. Keep telling us about your adventures!
