Thanksgiving Thanks

Thank you for visiting PedalDancer.com

I created this blog mainly as a creative outlet to express my joy of writing. I now see that it is also a resource of information for others like myself interested in traveling and cycling.
Today is the American holiday Thanksgiving, a time when we give thanks for the bounty in our lives. I am most grateful to my family and dear friends who have taken such care with me these past 6 weeks as I recovered from breaking my pelvis mountain biking in Moab, Utah. Thank you for helping me through a rough time. I am thankful for my returning health and happy to see my friends and family out enjoying so many varied activities. We have much more to share this coming year as we gather for meals, drinks, conversation, outdoor activities and a few great bike races. Here's to the year ahead - together.
I also wanted to say thanks to the visitors who visit this blog (including those who so kindly ask my parents how I am doing). For fun - a recap of the top ten most popular blog posts on PedalDancer.com to date:
