It was another busy weekend, but I ended up combining fitness and pleasure with just getting where I needed to go, on the bike. Saturday started with a breakfast meeting, afterwhich I did a loop around Pinchot. I then rode down to the baseball complex where I put in a shift at the concession stand. While peeling out of my sweaty tank top, there was a roadie/dad on a carbon Trek who gave me an approving nod. Then a ride home, which is almost all downhill. All told, around 25 miles.
Sunday included a ride to church and back, followed by a 10 mile ride after dark just to get rid of some nervous energy, and to test my new patch!
You know; I haven’t mentioned lately just how much fun riding a bike is. Sure it’s hard grinding up the hills some times; but the satisfaction of getting to the top is part of the joy. Sometimes I feel guilty for having so much enjoyment (not really, but you get my point). Baseball season is soon wrapping up, so I really need to get the fam out riding. I love this bike – I love the exercise – I love exploring.
