    Calling all mommies

    Daddies, too! Hi guys and dolls, It's been a very long time since I've posted here. Since I turned up pregnant last spring I pretty much gave up on reading and responding to posts.

    Hello (Again!)

    Hey everyone, Jersey Girl Rides (Jig) is back. I missed it here! The first year of school is officially over and I am officially on vacation. It was hard but worth it, and year two of teaching is going to be a lot smoother now that I know a few things that trial-by-fire have burned into...

    Pumpkin Patch Pedal - September 30, 2007

    Found this while reading my September issue of Bicycling magazine. Never knew this went on right in my own backyard: http://www.sibike.org/ppp.html Looks like a fun ride, and I can vouch for the scenery. This is my home turf and I ride these roads at least 2 times a week. I will be out of...

The Wegman's near Ronnie's house sells local NJ produce, and today...

    Tour Guide Needed for Wawayanda, Saturday July 21

    Hello, I was thinking road ride for Saturday but my Kona kicked me the other day for not riding it often enough, and I thought I would try riding some new trails instead of the road. I've hiked at Wawayanda years ago, but am not familiar with the bike trails. From what I understand, new...

    Routeslip.com - Problems?

    Hi, I've been using Routeslip for a few days now to trace my usual running and riding routes and plan new routes to try. I think it's great; I do not have to purchase a GPS now to get distance and elevation for my rides. Wonderful tool. Except for one thing: It Never Flippin' Works! The...

    HELP: Chain always stuck between granny and bb...

    last night I was riding around my local county park and in the midst of downshifting on a hill climb I threw the chain off granny gear.

Don't go to the mall alone - somebody might take you. Don't go to woods/park/camping/riding/running alone - you might get hurt and die, or...
