I got invited to ride bikes with my friend Christina this weekend, and we picked an amazing day for it! It started out in the 50s, I think, but warmed up as we rode. We were pretty comfortable the entire time – I think it was in the mid-60s by the time we finished.
Her sweet pooch wanted to come along, so in the basket she went! She clearly enjoyed the entire ride, too. Such a good dog.
We chose back roads when we could. I think this one was a dead end, but we didn’t mind. It was fun anyway!
There’s a lot of grass out here, and it was a pretty flat ride. We saw some cows, but I didn’t think to snap a pic, darn it. There were some really cute ones!
Christina and I caught up on life and chatted about whatever struck our fancy. It was nice on the back roads – very few cars. This was our first ride together, and it was a dream of a day.
I know I can go riding with Christina any time I want, and I have another riding friend, Christine, who I also hike with. We’re hoping to go on a biking event in June, with one more friend. I can’t wait!
I wasn’t expecting to ride this far… I haven’t been on my bike in some time. I was afraid I wouldn’t have enough stamina. Christine was easy to ride with, though, and the flat ride helped build my confidence. It sure is nice to have people build you up and encourage you to do good things, right?
