Hope you are welcoming new members to the Pomeranian Walkers. I have been logging many miles with my Buddy over the years. Your posts are very funny. Be well.

Pansy, GOD BLESS your strong, helpful heart. Your contributions to Bikejournal and the cycling community are incalculably precious!

Dear Pansy,
You moved! You had me worried for a minute. Florida, then Colorado! I hope all is well with you. You are an inspiration to all of us.

I had the great pleasure of riding with The Pansy on the American River Trail this summer. Donít believe the horror stories, Pansy is a fantastic hostess and trail guide. Sheíll tell you campfire-like stories of jumping leeches and point out body drop sites along the trail, along with "tips" on applying lipstick. Pansy truly lives in the moment. I canít wait to do it again!

Ms Pansy:
This is not a "suck up".... Simply a fact. I read your comments in the November Weigh-in Thread and couldn't help but think, what wonderful words were said. For whatever it's worth, you've motivated me into losing some weight and for that, I thank you.

WOW! I think I'll just go and dump my ego in a waste bin now it's been humbled.

Just wanted to say that I really enjoy you sense of humor......

Hadn't seen much of you around lately. How's your Brooks holding up? For my part,I am yet to reach saddle nirvana, but I think I can see it from here. Need more miles, many more miles. I'm now four days consecutive, baby steps. Here's wishing you and yours well.

Hello Pansy, I wanted to just say how much I enjoy your humor and wit. I didn't know about your cancer ordeal until I read it today on the Forum. God Bless you and your family and I hope you get thru this OK.

words cannot truely express how heart sick I am to know that you are doing poorly. You have always been someone that has made me smile, you are so out going and the only person who can truely match sarcastic wit with me. You keep on fighting the good fight my friend.

My best,

Tim Bartoe

"But, your honor, I did not see her before I hit her with my car." Those words will never stand up in a court of law concerning me and my preferred bicycling ensembles. Former competitive triathlete; currently "living with cancer"--undiagnosed primary, metastasized to liver/kidney/lungs. It is inoperable and incurable so I am on weekly chemo "forever." Luckily bicycling is an activity I can still participate in. Love bicycling and have (at last count) 1 road tandem, 5 road bikes, 1 mountain tandem, 2 mountain bikes, and one very junky beater road bike. We have dispensed with the 5 HD motorcyles: Sportster, Dyna Low Rider, 2 Road Kings and Buell Lightning.

Road bike
Description:  Wonderful pixie-stick bike. Top Bike in my Fleet now.
Name: HMS Fancy (Her Majesty's Ship Fancy)

Lifetime Odometer: 7,074.2 miles

click to enlarge 2003  Pomeranian
Full Susp XC Mountain bike
Description:  Partially bald 6 year old Pomeranian male. Cosmetic hair loss due to "Nordic Dog Black Skin Disease." My walking buddy when I'm not cycling. Is nameless product of broken home: daughter and then-boyfriend broke up and she went into the Army. He started out as Mr. Bumbles which I mutated to Mr. Cubbles and am moving toward "Cubby." He calls me "Nana" and Mr. Pansy "Pop-Oh" and speaks fluent baby talk...especially when in his Pooch Pouch on my chest in certain stores when I feel like pretending I really am one of those old crazy ladies. Is very smart and knows "Go Potty"; "Get In Bed"; "Do You Want To Go Out"; "Coochie Koo" (rolls over for tummy rub); plays with and knows the names of all his toys; loves cats, people of all ages, other dogs, doesn't yap. Is almost a perfect dog. Best of all, I have actual veterinarian orders to buy him clothes for winter. Oh joy: soon we will have matching tutus!!

Lifetime Odometer: 42,614.0 miles

click to enlarge 1991 Trek 5200
Road bike
Description:  Not certain about the year, but I have the Trek 5200 model from the first year they were available---in the ever lovely "Lunar" color, which shiftchanges between glittery purple or glittery blue depending on color/angle of viewing.

Lifetime Odometer: 4,211.6 miles

1991 Trek 8900 Composite
Hardtail XC Mountain bike
Description:  Guessing on year from the 90s. RockShock forks, prehistoric toe cage pedals, carbon main frame, aluminum chain stays/seat stays/head tube. In black carbon with neon yellow aluminum parts.

Lifetime Odometer: 1,057.0 miles

1990 Santana Sovereign
Tandem Road bike
Description:  The infamous "Trick Or Treat" arrived on Halloween Night, 1991. It was supposed to be "RED". Well, it can be described as Rubyesque or Majestic Maroon or Glittering Gem......but it is Not nor will it Ever be "RED". A tandem will find the very edge of the breaking point in a relationship. But living on the edge is kinda fun.

Lifetime Odometer: 122.5 miles

click to enlarge 1987 Access Super Go
XC Mountain bike
Description:  Truth in Advertising....NOT!!! Suckered into buying two of them via catalog advertising them as 26 pounds. They are more like 37+ pounds apiece but good for beater bikes.

Lifetime Odometer: 5,032.8 miles

click to enlarge 1986 Schwinn Peloton
Vintage bike
Description:  My first REAL bicycle. And it was so Garish: Screaming Red and White. So I defaulted to "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em" and spent almost as many hours hunting down red/white clothing, accessories, makeup, etc. as I did in training. Yes, those are red skeleton earrings: emblematic of what a really "ripped" athlete ends up looking like.

Lifetime Odometer: 1,011,147.3 miles

click to enlarge Bridgestone MB-0 (Zip)
XC Mountain bike
Description:  The color is "Tusk" as opposed to "Ivory" 'cuz those Bridgestone tree hugging folks were way into political correctness at the time. Don't know where their heads are at nowadays.

Lifetime Odometer: 287.6 miles
No planned events for 2023
