Beginning in December, 2003, Dew spent nine months cycling through the North and

wettest and windiest seasons since the keeping of records began.  Despite the weather

and a sometimes troublesome ankle she maintained her usual cheery disposition, reveling

in her life in the slow lane.  Though no Pollyanna, no matter how bad the drivers, desperate the weather, steep the road or sore the ankle, Josie Dew never complains.
