Buzz Worthy?

The flywheel is spinning

Months ago i bicycled to Disney’s Animal Kingdom (DAK) and parked here while enjoying a few hours inside DAK.

Today’s 30-miler should be the easiest one in recent history.

Why?

Because 30 miles a day is becoming the norm.

It feels good.

Really, really good.

Maybe It's Impossible

Ride Skipper Ride

Ride Skipper Ride.

COVID-19 continues to leave us guessing about the future.

Meanwhile, it’s incumbent on each of us to not guess about our future.

Bicycling three times a week for 30 miles per trip is fun.

This experience reminds me how i used to bike 30 miles a day, everyday, to get to work.

Will i revive 150 miles per week from 35 years ago?

Does it even make sense?

Can a 60-year old do what a 25-year old did?

Why not?

Fun.

150 miles every week

Biked from Disney’s North border to Celebration Place.

When we returned permanently to Orlando in 1984, we owned one car.

My first Disney role as River Country Lifeguard required a 36-mile roundtrip bicycle ride from our apartment in Kissimmee.

The second role in Resort Hotel Operations mandated a 30-mile one-way bike ride from Poinciana to Disney’s Contemporary Resort.

Only completed the Poinciana roundtrip version once. Sixty miles plus an 8.5-hour shift, meant i left Magic Kingdom at 12:20AM and biked through the night arriving home at 2:45AM.

Grateful to have had a neighbor who worked the same 4PM – Midnight shift with the same days off, and had a pickup truck i could throw my bicycle into and catch a ride home 5 nights a week.

Nice 30-miler

Nice 30-miler.

Not in a boat.

On a bicycle.

Can’t recall the last time i rode 30 miles in a day.

Maybe Glacier National Park in June 2019.

Or in the mid-1980’s every day to work from our Poinciana home to Disney’s Contemporary Resort for my 4PM – midnight front desk shift.

Only 22

Only 22 miles yesterday, not a full marathon.

You know what?

Those 22 miles were amazing on a Saturday morning.

Mileage like that is amazing any day of the week.

So grateful to be alive.

So grateful to be active.
