Just over 400

Apr 19, 2017

After the nice day last Saturday, we had rain, rain and more rain along with cold.  Today was warmer and dry so after running errands in the morning, I climbed on the bike with no particular ride in mind. However, I had to give Dan some idea of where I’d be so, “heading east on 120, maybe to Rim of the World.”

Once I got rolling, I just kept on.  Turns out the wind was at my back which I discovered when I turned around at the 12 mile point (which was beyond Rim of the World but not much).  A cold wind it was too.  Ah well, such is the life of a cyclist.  After a bit, I didn’t think too much more about it except to push a bit to get home before it got colder.

I am so fortunate to live where I do.  Even though it has been an extremely wet winter thus making it harder to get out for rides (I mean, who wants to ride in the wet AND the cold in the mountains–not me), the water has brought forth the green grasses and the pretty wildflowers.

Added up my miles on the new bike thus far – just over 400 since March 19.
