Follow Your Dreams No Matter What Your Age By Frosty Wooldridge At the end of 2020 and the beginning of 2021, you might consider your life on this planet as an “eternity” of 80 years, give or take. You may choose any style, any path and any attitude. You may live large, average or choose a “meek” existence. It’s up to you. It’s your choice. It’s your individual “eternity.” Once you draw your last breath on this planet, your “moment” is gone forever. We humans enjoy and/or are cursed with the fact that we know our time on this planet will end. Other creatures on this globe do not realize their lives carry a departure date. Mountain man John Muir said it with style as to bears: “Bears are made of the same dust as we, and breathe the same winds and drink of the same waters. A bear’s days are warmed by the same sun, his dwellings are over-domed by the same blue sky, and his life turns and ebbs with the heart-pulsings like ours, and was poured from the same First Fountain. And whether he at last goes to our stingy heaven or not, he has terrestrial immortality. His life not long, not short, knows no beginning, no ending. To him life unstinted, unplanned, is above the accidents of time, and his years, markless and boundless, equal Eternity.” So, what do you choose to do in the last part of your eternity? What actually enthralled you to the point of fervor, passion and joy during the early parts of your eternity? Have you watched Paul McCartney? He’s still playing his guitar and writing music at 75. What about Mick Jagger? He’s still dancing across the stage at 77. What about Betty White at 95? She’s still entertaining. What about Danielle Steel? She’s still writing brilliant novels. What about President Jimmy Carter at 90? He’s hammering nails and building houses for Habitat for Humanity? At 104, Olivia de Haviland still participated in the arts until her last breath in 2020. In 1884 to 1886, Thomas Stevens pedaled his High Wheeler around the world to become the first person in history to ride a bicycle around the world. Steve Stevens repeated the exact same route in the 1980’s. The first was in his 20’s and the second one was in his 40’s. The world awaits anyone on a bicycle. So, if you’re over 60, 70 or 80, the window of creative opportunity narrows with each sunrise. Unlike the bear, you know he’s coming…the Grim Reaper. But, he’s not here yet! Big question: what new ideas, paintings, events, contests or anything that excited you in your youth can still be realized today? Like the bear who does not know about his final moment, you may pursue anything your heart desires, which in the end, pushes that “final moment” further into the future. One of my dear friends, Lindy, watches her 95 year old father play competitive tennis matches regularly. My friend, Bob, at 77, swims a mile six days a week. I remember A.B. Facey, an Australian, at 88, wrote a book: My Fortunate Life. No publisher would touch it. He decided to self-publish his book. In reality, he was an ordinary man. Because it was a memoir of his life as a soldier in WWI to circus performer to cowboy to driller to boxer—his book became a best seller. Audiences thrilled to his presentations. Colleges gave him honorary doctorates. At 90, when his eternity ended, Australians celebrated him as one of their greatest heroes. Another woman, Helen Santmyer, at 88, wrote a New York Times best seller: And Ladies of the Club. J.K. Rowling, living on welfare, began writing her Harry Potter stories on napkins at a coffee shop in London. Well, you know the rest of her story as one of the richest self-made millionaires in all of Great Britain. So where does that leave you as we head into 2021? Answer: endless possibilities to make a mark in this world. You don’t need to become famous by volunteering at a childcare center or a soup kitchen or homeless shelter. You may grab a paintbrush and dab a few colors onto a canvas. You might take a pottery class that allows you endless creative pursuits. You might take up macramé, photography, jewelry making, guitar, piano, reading, storytelling, and dozens of other vibrant paths. Or you can sit and wait! Followed by most, but not recommended! As for this writer, I suggest a book that I’ve read 23 times and expect to read another 23 times: Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear by Elizabeth Gilbert. Her book will fire your imagination, excite your creative mind and inspire you toward passionate living during your eternity. Whatever you do, 2021 beckons renewal of your creative genius, your fountain of wisdom from your life well-lived. Go climb a mountain! I will meet you at the top! Go ride your bicycle. I’ll meet you on the highways of the world. “You can’t wait for inspiration, you have to go after it with a club” – Jack London

My granddaughter Kayleigh switched to Trek technology today, buying a new bike from Ultimate. She picked up another 5 mph with her 6 speed Shimano drive-train!
Thank you Matt and Ultimate Bike Shop! First time out with new shoes (I love them Matt), and new gearing. We rode up Pinnacle Mountain today from Flat Rock. Lots of climbing. The bike was flawless and my new shoes super comfy! I appreciate so much your expert abilities and how you know me and what I need on a bike!

WHY CAN’T YOU STOP ADVENTURE’S GREATEST MOMENTS? By Frosty Wooldridge Do you ever find yourself living inside a moment of adventure that you wish you could stop time? How about that stunning sunset boiling into the Pacific Ocean on the coast of Oregon? What about the last rays of the sun setting over Half-Dome in the majesty of Yosemite? What about the sun’s shadows cascading over the rocks at Joshua Tree National Park while you pitched your tent? Did you want time to stop during that moment when you pushed your front wheel into the ocean at the end of a coast to coast ride? Have you ever wanted that campfire’s wonder to burn forever into your heart along with your friends as you sat there under a star-lit night sky? What about that kangaroo hopping alongside you on the Great Ocean Road? What about riding the El Camino Highway coming out of La Paz, Bolivia as you summit the pass at 15,500 feet? Do you remember riding up to the Great Wall of China for your moment of triumph? How about the wonder in your eyes when you saw your first grizzly bear and her cubs on your journey over the Top of the World Highway coming into Alaska from the Yukon? Did it blow your mind when you stood next to Jack London’s cabin in Dawson City, Yukon where he wrote: Call of the Wild? At that moment of triumph, you raise your hands with a sense of glory, accomplishment and the profound energy of being alive. Every cell in your body tingles with imagination realized. It’s just a kick-ass moment in your life. But adventure always calls to the next moment; the next event; the next challenge. It never tarries with yesterday. Adventure awaits no man or woman. You either jump on adventure highway or you sit on the couch or behind a steering wheel. Or, you click on the remote to watch someone else live their own adventure. It means taking action in your life. That’s why they call it adventure. Its origins stem from Middle English, which means: “what must happen”; “bold and unusual undertaking”; “risky actions.” You can bet that most people watching us ride our bicycles down the road think, “Those guys must be crazy…why would anyone ride a bicycle in the rain…why would anyone climb a mountain pass on a bicycle…what would possess those folks to suffer so much to travel…I feel sorry for those folks pedaling up a mountain pass….” Trust me; I’ve heard endless comments. But you know, I’ve heard others say, “Gosh, that looks like magic…that looks like fun…how far do you travel per day…where do you stay…doesn’t your butt hurt…wish I had the knees for such a glorious undertaking…you must see the world in a whole new way at 15 miles per hour….” John Muir said, “Everything is flowing -- going somewhere, animals and so-called lifeless rocks as well as water. Thus, the snow flows fast or slow in grand beauty-making glaciers and avalanches; the air in majestic floods carrying minerals, plant leaves, seeds, spores, with streams of music and fragrance; water streams carrying rocks...while the stars go streaming through space pulsed on and on forever like blood...in Nature's warm heart.” Frosty Wooldridge, 6 continent world bicycle travelers, top of Spluggen Pass with friends we met along the way, Italian Alps
