For all summer, if not since last year, we've been saying, along with Blaubeere, that we ought to get together and go for a bike ride. So we finally picked a day and did it! We packed up our bikes and headed her way. Turned out to be the hottest day of the summer, so far, too! That part we could have done without. You know, bike riding in 90 degree weather? Yeah, but we survived.
Anyway, we picked a short but interesting ride. There is an old train trestle that has been turned into a recreational trail, open for walking, jogging, and bike riding. The trestle itself is actual about 3/4 mile long so to make it feel more like a bike riding expedition we started from a little neighborhood park several blocks from the trestle.
It was a good day, despite being so hot. It was a good ride, good company, interesting scenery, lots of fun at the playground, and yummy ice cream in the air conditioning to top it all off. A very well spent afternoon.
