Postcards from the Cape

7.1.2017 – No bike trip to Cape Cod is complete without a dip in the ocean or an eventful fall. Gotta love the tiger stripes.

Perched on Spy Pond

1.16.2017 – My 39th year will be spent peering out over Spy Pond in Arlington, MA. There is tranquility on the horizon and on the Minuteman Bike Path, which is just steps from my door.

Floating atop the Hudson

10.17.2016 – As far as I know, this will be my only post from 2016. At least it will be of a beautiful ride through Poughkeepsie and across the Walkway Over the Hudson, which for a period of time since 2009 held the distinction of being the longest footbridge in the world.


Goodbye Sweet Carolina

5.26.13 – On May 1st, I moved from Columbia, South Carolina to Boston, Massachusetts. With this transition, I have also retired the Cycling The South blog, and established my new site, Cycling En Mass. It will most certainly be a trip, one which begins on my new, beautiful, tree-lined street of Saint Botolph.Saint Botolph

Mysterious Lady Spotted Riding Harbison

1.6.13 – Columbia has had some incredibly comfortable weather lately, and even a causal rider like Ms. McGregor (pictured here) couldn’t resist borrowing a friend’s mountain bike to tackle the terrain on some of Columbia’s most harrowing trails at Harbison State Forest. Merrill survived this outing despite a plethora of rocks, drops and exposed roots, dwindling sunlight, and limited vision from a failure to wear her glasses.

Rock Hill Earns Bicycle Friendly Community Designation!

10.18.12 – The League of American Bicyclists designated Rock Hill as a Bicycle Friendly Community at the Bronze level today, raising South Carolina’s total of BFCs to six. The five other SC communities having achieved this distinction are: Hilton Head (Silver), Charleston (Bronze), Columbia (Bronze), Greenville (Bronze), and Spartanburg (Bronze). Congratulations to everyone in Rock Hill for making biking in their community safe and enjoyable.

Martha’s Vineyard

9.21.2012 – There’s nothing like cruising along a dirt trail carved through a rural expanse like Martha’s Vineyard on a somewhat vintage mountain bike. Between Maine and Massachusetts, the last two weeks of vacation were incredible, but unfortunately, this was my only ride during the entire trip. Thanks to Amanda for hosting!
