Meet: BJ and JoLynn Ondo

Hello and WELCOME to this page about US!  We are BJ and JoLynn Ondo, we have been "Best Friends" since we meet in 1967 in the 7th. Grade at Watson Jr. High School in Security, CO. We dated on and off throughout Jr.  High and High School. We are both graduates of Widefield High School, Class of 1973!

 Being the best of FRIENDSwe ended up marrying others. After those marriages both failed, unknowingly we both divorced around the same time frame and hooked back up as "Just Friends" for a time. then in 1980 we decided that "Friendship and Marriage" could actually work in harmony so on a beautiful Colorado fall day, October 3rd. 1980 we got married! We will be celebrating our 42nd. Wedding Anniversary on October 3rd., 20222. 

We raised 4 kids and have 6 grand kids and 6 great grandkids as of 2020! We hope to be together for many, many more years! We are now both surviving the best we can on our meager SS retirement income. We also love to take 5K walks or hikes around the area we live in Colorado Springs, CO. We wish you ALL, Miles of SMILES! :)

 We enjoy past times that make us MOVE! We WALK every day that we don't ride the bicycles unless the weather is "really cold, snowing, etc."

Next, we started playing DISC GOLF. We have 3 or 4 really nice and easy to get to DG Courses here in Colorado Springs, and Pueblo, CO.  Decided to give up disc golf and do more bicycling and motorcycling in 2010. 

BJ rode Motorcycles on and off since 1976. We started to ride together on and off since 1985. At times we doubled up on one motorcycle or we each had our own motorcycles! 

We rode many brands and styles of motorcycles, over hundreds of thousands of miles but the time came that we had to give up riding and quit as of April 2018. Our last motorcycle was a 2014 Harley-Davidson 883 Sportster Super Low, (XL883L). We quit riding due to the high cost of the machines, maintenance, tires, etc. Here is the last pages of our Motorcycle Blog and our Motorcycle Photos Album! :(

BJ has been riding Bicycles on and off since the late 1960's! In 1984 JoLynn joined in so we've had a long history with riding bikes/tandems/trikes, etc.! In 1995 we bought Fuji Comfort bikes and from there it went to Mountain Bikes then Fitness/flat bar road bikes and we either rode alone or we hooked up with local bicycle clubs. 

The first one was called STRADA, then later the Colorado Springs Bicycle Club. LOL, we have had all types of bikes and even recumbent trikes over the years together! Now it's become our #1. lifestyle! Now adays we usually ride alone as we are "SLOW" riders and can't afford the E-assist systems for our trikes. No biggie we LIKE "Smell The Roses" type of riding better anyway! :) For more InSite, check out our Bike Blog:  Out and About on the Recumbents or our Our Trike & Bike Photos
