Why and where

Us in 2006 when we started the blog.

We (more on that later) decided we should start a blog to see if we could find more people with crazy schedules like ours who like to ride bikes (the pedal kind). We live in western Massachusetts and if you live here, southern Vermont, or southwestern NH send us an email at sipclipandgo AT gmail DOT COM. Hell, if you are willing to drive to bike with others, we don’t care where you live.

As for experience level we are higher on enthusiasm than skill.  We’re both adventurous, but with a healthy dose of caution: neither one of us needs or wants to be injured or maimed in any way.  We’re in our early mid 40’s chronologically, female, athletic, and naturally competitive, but aren’t looking to prove anything anymore–we’re just looking to have some fun.  Some times we take it easy.  Other times we challenge ourselves.  This is just a fun way to attempt to get some

regular exercise and remain social.  If you’d like to converse more, email us at sipclipandgoATgmailDOTcom.  See you on the trail!

    Hi Heather and Karen,
    I like your website and would like to invite you to Local Cyclist. We are in the process of putting together a nation-wide network of local cycling blogs and websites. The purpose is to create a resource and provide national cycling coverage from the local perspective. Please take a look at the site http://www.localcyclist.com and let me know if you are interested.

    I don’t live anywhere near you ladies but I’m also doing a LIVESTRONG ride this year – my 2nd one in Austin – and thought it would be cool to chat about training and other sundry things with you. I’ve enjoyed your posts!
