Hello All,

We're back to support and continue the fight for those who cannot. 

As many of you may know, my dear Mother Donna passed away in 2001 from Lung disease.  Since doing this event, I have known and met countless people who have lost a loved one to Lung disease (not just to Lung Cancer).  It is astonishing how many people are effected by one lung disease or another. 

I pray that by participating in this event we can built more exposure, awareness and a greater need for financial support to find a cure for ALL lung related diseases.

So, please support me/us and the American Lung Association in the fight for healthy lungs and healthy air.

Your generous donation to my/our Fight for Air Walk/Climb will help save lives today and keep America healthy tomorrow.

Because no one should struggle to breathe!

Thanks from our Team,
Oceanside Air Masters - Renee, Kathy and Team

My Life ~ XOXO

Wine Country Century ~ Santa Rosa

This last weekend was our 3rd Annual ride at the Wine Country Century 2012 put on by the Santa Rosa Cycling Club -

This is a terrific event not just because it is in the gorgeous Wine Country. It is professional, very well organized, fully supported, the food is fantastic at the Rest Stops and the BBQ at the end. And, finally the people participating in the ride and volunteering on the day of the event are friendly and excited being there and engaging with others. 

We have done other rides that are good to very good, but this is definitely one that we look forward to doing year after year.

Apparently, we are not the only ones who agree. Very quietly the word goes out to get your entrance, as they limit to 2500 riders.  If you miss this notification or don't follow, you sadly don't get a ticket. However, not to fret, alot of times, people are not able to attend the event in May, so they post their ticket(s) for sale on places like Craigslist. That is how we had to get ours last year. Lucky us! :) However, one of our friends was on top of it and got our tickets, Yee-Ha!

At any rate, we signed up to do the 100 K but all of us weren't quite up to par.

Myself, I felt kinda sluggish for the first 15 miles until the first rest stop and ate. As soon as I ate, it was like the light switch went on, wow! If I had been feeling this good the first 15; I would have ridden the 100K.

Despite flying cell phones, sluggish riders, blisters, jet lag and having to use our MacGyver Rode Skills, a GREAT time was had by all.

After all, every rider has his/her day! And it is important to remember, it is NOT A RACE!
It is intended to be good, clean, healthy, fun! And that it was!
Thank you Santa Rosa Cycling Club for another Fantastic Event!

See you all Next Year!

Get on your bike whether it's a cruiser, a tricycle, hot wheels, road or hybrid, just get out in the fresh air and enjoy! 

Going to do this very thing this weekend on an Annual Ride with the Santa Rosa Cycling Club through California's gorgeous Wine Country.  It is a FANTASTIC ride and the club is AMAZING!

It is supposed to be perfect weather, high 70's / 80's and no wind (let's hope, except a light breeze), Woo Hoo! 

Hoping to do the 100K but may only do 35 miler, wish us luck!  Will post pictures upon my return.

Happy Cycling!  Cheers!

My Bear Friends are not only experts when it comes to Picnic Baskets and the Forest but they are great at givng sound advice on other matters like "sharing the rode." 

So, here is their "Advice for the Day:"

When out and about and enjoying a Walk, Run or Bike Ride and using Public Paths and Walkways that allow us to share with eachother, please remember these simple, common sense Rules:

1) Be aware of your Surroundings and Listen to what is going on around you, even if you are texting, chatting on the phone or with a friend by your side or listening to your music

2) Follow the SINGLE  File Rule - When people are approaching from the other direction, drop behind eachother, DON'T take up the entire path and DON'T continue to walk abreast.  

Not only is this inconsiderate but it is dangerous

3) Let someone know you are going to pass them by announcing your intent by stating clearly and loudy but politely, "On Your Left or Rignt."  Also, if you have a bell on your bike, chime it! 
But, don't assume that they'll understand or hear you, so repeat the process, if necessary 

Cyclists - This is particularily important for you to do!

4) Finally, always remember be aware, be polite, be safe and your experiences will be even more enjoyable!

Thank you and Have a GREAT Day!


Seems as though I haven't been riding as much this year for one reason or another and cannot always blame the weather. 

Have been on a couple great rides this year, one was in February in Palm Springs.

However, a freak storm started to come in which kicked up gale force winds the day of the ride and prevented us from completing the 62 miles we set out to do.  I was dissapointed because it was my first time doing this ride and wanted to experience the beauty of the desert via my bike.  Oh well, next time! 

At any rate, we managed to put in 35 Miles and get FREE microdemabrasion, hahahaha!

This past weekends weather was fantastic and trekked out through the Presidio and over our beloved Golden Gate Bridge and back.  That was a tad challenging since the side that is usually open for Cyclists has been closed for a few months for repairs and preparation of the 75th Anniversary of the bridge. 

The challenge wasn't the ride or the tourists trying to get that perfect shot of the bridge or city scape so much as it was dodging other cyclists who think they are
Lance Armstrong and can't bust their pace! 

Honestly, I never understand these people, if they are so great a rider and want a challenge then:

1) go earlier and avoid the peeps 2) take another route 3) do us all a favor and be patient and polite. 

Overheard, one of these very riders, who had been crowding me and then doing the same to the people in front of me say at the end, "that was painful."  To me what was painful was his cocky attitude and lack of road decorum!

Rude cyclist and people for that matter, who aren't polite is what gives us all a bad name!

At any rate, looks like it is going to be another beautiful day in paradise, so think I will try to get in a ride to prep for Santa Rosa this weekend (May 5th).

Happy Cycling and Remember ~ We all have to share the Road and Paths!

November 2. 2011 - Rip Curl Pro

Weather in the 70's today (incredible for November), rode my bike down for the 2nd day of the Rip Curl Competition. Was watching Round 3 Heats and it was announced Kelly was doing autographs. So bike and camera in hand, I went over to watch and catch some choice shots. I politely asked his security if he would sign my backpack and he said yes.
So, I handed over so Kelly Slater - 11th ASP World Title holder could sign my lowly backpack, Wow and YEE-HA!

Also, as he was leaving the Rip Curl club house, I got a shot of his trophy and he looked straight at me, Sweeeet!!
On his way out, he was continuing to autograph things for others; photogs and videographers were clicking away, when I realized I was standing behind him, I pray I am not in the pics, as I had on one of my ravishing biking outfits LOL He was so generous with his time, mellow and what a sweetie!

At any rate, an AWESOME day! Check that off my bucket list!!

Blessings do occur everyday and the best ones are those that we least expect! Thank you! :):)

Pics copyrighted by R. Lazear. Sorry this pic of Kelly is a bit fuzzy, I took so many pics with regular camera, I filled the chip up and had to quickly grab by cell phone camera Took TONS of pics and videos, working on posting ASAP!

Wine Country Metric Century May 6, 2011

Had a great time, except for Chalk Hill Road and my broken toe, but even the toe couldn't keep me down!

Weather, scenery, venue, people, and food were perfect. At times there was a bit of a head wind, but that actually felt good!

The Wine Country Metric Century is sponsored by Santa Rosa Bike Club. They are an amazing group and this is one of the best organized rides we've done. Will keep coming back year after year!!! Thanks for All You Do ! !
