Instant Peay Play - APSU SportsClarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University has had some very good volleyball teams in its history, championship teams, but the current 2017 team has a chance to supplant all the teams that have come before them with two weeks left in the regular season.

Dodging the Roadkill: Taking The Corners

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – “What’s the one thing you would tell a new rider on how to handle the corners?

I posed this question on my Facebook page the other day and got a variety of answers.  All of them great.  The reason I did that was because I know a lot of VERY experienced riders follow my blog and I attribute my growth as a rider to heading the advice from all of them.

I ride with experienced riders and they tell me things they notice, and I observe them and learn from them.  I love this journey so much, I want to be as good a biker as I can be.
