Ok been more then a minute, yupper this is true, got some crazy stuff going on but my head is in the right place. Going to say that the weather has been acting all crazy. Anyway, got on a few rides these fast few months, nothing major just trying to get back into the swing of things again. Pushed away more negatives and gained so much more positives now. Almost slid backwards a couple times but managed to stand straight up again on my own. We all fall down but it is how we get back up that makes our journey on two wheels fun. How we perceive life , our life in comparison with the bicycle.Its like the wheel goes round and we know so does our life so why not roll with it and just keep moving forward or if you track stand backwards to keep the balance. I have to say that I am so happy in my life right now, yes The One had a lot to do with it but really I thought that being alone would be hard and riding alone would be hard, well I love riding with people , all kinds of people. Im trying to make things simpler instead of so damn complicated. It is only complicated to me cause that is what I have seen in my head for the past 2 years or so. Now I realize not only am I short but so is life and I am not going to waste another day not riding my bike. I am moving to a new location soon and I will commute more back and forth to work. I really hate driving, a lot. I am so excited about this that I have bought a few more bikes for my commute . And One rule. I am also getting the One a bike so she can ride with me. She deserves a little break in life so I thought why not on two wheels with me. She digs the idea and that makes me happy.

For now let yourself find a positive in your life like I have done and just go for it. RAMFB and keep the wheels and your life rolling forward.


We all get in a funk from time to time, it’s how we go about it and change our way of getting out of the funk. Now, seeing how it has rained pretty much everday since late October I have been in a funk. Going through the motions of wanting to ride and not wanting to ride. I am just trying to get through this like all of you. Rain sucks but we need it but not this much rain in such a prime time to ride. Some ride anyway, Rule9 , but I do not like to ride when it is wet, I don’t live in Oregon , I live in NC and this is not the normal season . So with all this rain I devoted all my time to work, some say I work to much and I know this to be true but it’s what I do. Through the course of the months of not riding I made new stickers and have new ideas for the new year to come. One of my goals is to back off on the quantity of beers and back off on working everyday. I decided to join a gym so I can get stronger for the trails. Another thing I am doing is taking my life now one day at a timeand not going at it full throttle like I always do. Going through a divorce is no fun at all, you see I made my mistakes but it takes two,  Not saying anything negative about my ex soon to be but she was awesome to me and cared for me but something was not right . Anyway I have moved on and life seems to be getting better with all my new goals and yes The One is my main goal , God knows I am not perfect but The One has been my backbone for a minute and I want it to be for the rest of my life. For without The One I would be lost and farther down the Rabbit hole and God only knows doing what but negatives. She has given me a sense of hope and inspires me to RAMFB and spread the gospel of life on two wheels. SO I am getting out of this funk I have been in and will continue to keep the wheels rolling forward and give back positives to others that need it. Happy New Year and set your goals and believe in yourself that You can cause you can do what ever you believe in. RAMFB and keep the wheels rolling forward and to The One this life for us has only just begun.

When in Doubt

When in doubt ride your bike, things can always get better and they will. Your having a shit day so I say RAMFB and things will seem to just be as they are ment to be and no reason to sit there and get all shitfaced for the rest of the day, go out and ride or climb or even walk but get the hell out of your house and do something., Now is a new week and for me it has been a rough couple of weeks but the One has kept me grounded from losing my shit. Ya see, when in doubt when things seem to be not so right in your universe they really are. We can’t control the negatives but we sure the hell can try. Now for me, in pain but I will go out and ride anyway cause therapy is on two wheels for me and this is what I need. I do wanna say one thing before I go, I didn’t know you but only heard of stories of you that made you a legend in our community so Mat Hoffman RIP and know it was all or nothing at all. RAMFB and keep the wheels rolling forward and no not the BMX Hoffman…Have a great week and hopoe to see you all out on the trails real soon…


Rain , well it does, and we are in the wet time of the year so we get all bear like and want to ride but the rain says no, so , we wait..Wait till the rain stops and the trails get dry or atleast a little dry and then we go, go to release the pinned up angst about how this rain sucks and God am I losing my mind, thank God for trainers though. Keep the legs moving and the brain focused on your ride to come. RAMFB…The One…


Monday is your day to start a goal , be it ride more or lose that little pound you want to lose. Find your space both mentaly and physically. You have to put your mind into the I can’s now, Nothing comes easy ecspecially on Monday cause it’s the start of a long work week so you have to pace yourself. You got this. For me today is a new day of living another day. I am getting a new bike , stoked . I haven’t been on a new bike in a minute but I know I have to change my style once again to get aquainted with the bike. SO I decided to start doing something I never do, workout., Being that I am of age,48, doesn’t mean I’m dead, It just means I am still here. I am not really in bad shape but I amd not perfect on my diet and bonus, yes I know, I am struggling quitting smoking. It is my biggest weakness. So when I woke up today I decided I am going to quit, not cold turkey but cut back the amount . I can’t stand the fact that I smoke. It kills me. Anyway that is my Monday goal to reach my next goal for the next day. I say this with confidence, I am not perfect , I have my flaws still but not as many cause The One has helped me with this. Gave me positives and said I can do this. So to you all You can do this.Monday is just a day, don’t hate it, embrace it as any other day. 4 more days till the weekend , yay but still get your rides in and work on your goals. Have a great Monday and RAMFB..
