I’ve been loving my “new” bike and to prove that love, I’ve been taking advantage of the beautiful weather we’ve been having and riding as much as I can. Oh sure, it’s rained some here and there, but not today. Nope, today was incredible with blue skies, just a hint of wispy clouds and a gentle breeze with temps in the 60’s. Really about as perfect a day for biking as you could ask for. So when my Sister-in-law called this morning asking if I would like to join her and a few others for a ride, I jumped at the opportunity.
A small group of us hit the road around 1:00pm and took about a 30mile ride. We started in Marcellus and cruised around some beautiful and hilly countryside. The colors of the leaves were spectacular although it is now clear that the peak of Autumn is behind us. Lot’s of leaves are off the trees now but still, there is a lot of color left and it was great to be able to experience it today. The weather for this weekend is not looking too good at this point because rain is in the forecast. That makes me even happier that I got out there today. I’d love to have a year like 2006 where biking was possible even in late December…remember the 70 degree days in the third week of December last year? Realistically I think we’ll have a more “normal” winter this year and days like today are probably not going to be too plentiful moving forward.
Live, Love, Cycle!
