Finally Our First Bike Ride
Here we are starting the second week of August and we are just going for our first bike ride of the year. This spring was busy with other things and we never got the bikes out, not to mention it was unseasonably cold and rainy. July was hot, at least for us northerners it was hot. Anything in the upper 80's or 90's with humidity is hot to us. Today was nice, it was in the mid seventies so we road about four or five miles.
The town nearest to us has one of those bike trails that use to be the railroad tracks. There are miles and miles of paved trail that are nice and flat with traffic only in the spots where roads cross the trail for safe biking. There is a tower that over looks the park by the trail and Spark climbed up there and snapped a photo. Dancer and I stayed down below and guzzled water from the drinking fountain.
