At the beginning of the month of September, my own dear mother visited the great City of Salt Lake. Hailing from the splendid state of Wisconsin, my own birthplace, she tore a hole through Utah while she was here.
Among hiking in the Wasatch mountains, picking apples at a local orchard, and eating good food at Salt Lake's restaurants, one of my most favorite things we got to do together was a Bike tour! We successfully circuited the Big City Loop Tour, 3 hours, with nothing held back, no particular hill un-climbed, just a few little flares added here and there just for my Mom and me. She's a special lady, after all.
Jackie Miska is plenty familiar with Salt Lake, after having raised me here for 15 years of my childhood and adolescent life, before moving back to Wisconsin, but I dare say even she learned some cool new things that day, cruising around town on a bike ride with me. Thanks Mom for being tough and sticking through it, even though I know your knee gives you pain from time to time.
She came, she saw, she conquered. And she might even say that "if she could do it, anybody can"; but hey, she raised my brother and me, which not nearly anybody could do, So if you're thinking about doing a Salt Lake Bicycle Tour, you better not be some geek off the street ;) You gotta get smart and keep a square head on your shoulders. Just like my Mom, Jackie. How else are you gonna get through life?
