All Good Things Must Come to an End

I am finally retiring my Giant John Tomac Team Edition mountain bike. It was given to me by my nephew Derek over 15 years ago and I have had many many happy memories riding it in some of the most remote parts of the US, but all good things must come to an end.

Kim helped a lady put her life back together. She had a stroke over a year ago and Kim was indeed her angle of mercy. For the very small part that I played in helping, I was given her son’s , who passed away several years ago, his KHS XC-20 mountain bike. If I have half the fun I had on Giant I will be one happy camper.

  1. Hi, Peter; Looks like your new bike has rear suspension as well as Rock Shock forks. Should be good. I didn’t know you were a bike rider. Best, Don

    • I am a big time bike rider when we travel, but not a true “mountain biker “. It gets me lots of places safely so that I can either enjoy them or photograph them. They both have front and rear shock, but the newer one is lighter and has disk brakes. I am really enjoying it.
