Chasing PR’s on my morning bike commute

So if there are any other riders who have Fibromyalgia would like to share your experiences with riding with the disease, please comment.

Also check out my first Gluten-Free Dessert Recipe, found on my Grandma’s Bake Shop Blog : Blueberry Mascarpone Tart : https://grandmasbakeshop.wordpress.com/2016/11/28/blueberry-mascarpone-tart-from-ibreatheim-hungry/ We enjoyed this as our Thanksgiving dessert and truly enjoyed. Now that I have riding and riding experiences to talk about I will be back on the journey and talking about it. So come on back now, ya’ll. Hee hee sorry… that’s how we do here in the south.
