    Wow, time flies indeed! I have to say, these Summer Games have played a decided role in my life this summer. It got me to bike in Prague, to want to be more exploratory in my bike riding, and now I look forward to what round III will bring.

    I will be blogging about the events for Round III on Simply Bike, I hope that’s no problem (having documented the first two on academichic).

    So I have to admit, I am not very savvy…

    What exactly constitutes a Greenway? Is it a paved bike trail? Or only a dirt trail?

      I conquered three challenges yesterday afternoon!

      Alas, the nearby greenway is currently dirt and not as much in nature as I would have liked.

    Yay for the Queen Bee pannier! I am friends and neighbors with the brother of the creator of this Portland, OR company. This is how the internet connects the world: I live in Virginia, your blog is in Chicago and Nashville, and Queen Bee is in Oregon. Love it!
