THE MICHELE LOUIS-SIMELANE ENDOWMENT FUND: Michele's ashes grace many places in the world. In nearby Jamaica Bay and in the Pyrenees' green pastures, all the way to sacred Jerusalem and the top of Mount Hermon in Israel. Now our family and friends have created a permanent reminder of her dedication to the environment at Frost Valley YMCA camp in the Catskills that she loved so dearly.
What people know is not always what reality makes you face.
Take Alpes d’Huez, for example.. People immediately think of the winding 21 corkscrew like, hairpin turns that the Tour de France racers take to the top of the mountain.
But in reality, there are many gentler roads, some prettier even, that one can use to go up there or ride down like the one in the picture below .
Reason I mention this is because, sometime I choose the hard way when very close to me is the softer road that could take me the same place. Today I tried to do that by cycling with inspired fellows who give themselves a break and don’t feel they have to push hard all the time. The result? I think it helped my overall fitness and moved me a little closer to my goal. Who says ” you can’t teach this old dog a new trick?…
