Boomer Rediscoveries: The Bike in the Garage Part 2

A little over a year ago, I posted a blog about rediscovering my bike after many years (Boomer Rediscoveries: The Bike in the Garage). That poor bike, gathering dust in the garage, all alone and neglected, like the Velveteen Rabbit, in favor of other toys. No longer! In the interim, I have had such fun, with the best of times spent on the Virginia Capital Trail, which is celebrating its 2nd anniversary in October. The Trail is 52 miles of beautifully maintained biker’s glory that runs between Richmond and Williamsburg. I think of it as one of the area’s shining achievements. The Capital Trail Foundation has a great website, check it out at The website refers to the Trail, which is a cooperative effort of both VDOT and the Foundation, as “a glorious regional amenity” and I couldn’t agree more.

Cherie is a late bloomer Boomer, born at the tail end of the Boomer generation. She was playing with Barbies while her older sisters marched on Washington and fought for equal rights, but watched and learned. Now she is an empty nester with a whole new future to explore and share at! As “Philosopher in Chief” Cherie merely wants to change the world with this blog: to encourage those of us in the midst of our “second act” to look at life with new eyes, open to a life filled with new beginnings rather than endings, and to apply all we have learned to a way of living that is more meaningful and profound. There is SO much to live for, up until the very end.
