I loaded up my bike this afternoon and went to my favorite park (same place I CC ski in the winter). I have a little back pack that I stashed some water, my cell phone and a map of the park (don't want to get lost like I did this winter skiing).
What a ride! There are so many hills and roots over the roads it was a blast. I ate a lot of bugs as I sailed down the hill yelling Wheeeeeee!!!!! It was so much more fun that riding on a street. Lots of twists and turns made the time fly by.
The smell of the honeysuckle blossoms was divine and there were lots of trilliums blooming along the trails. The park was pretty busy. I must have met a dozen people or so while I was there. Lots of runners and people with their dogs.
I rode about 45 minutes and covered nearly 5 miles.
