We picked up our bikes on Saturday, so we rode 6 miles along the bike trail that comes to our small town. Then on Sunday we rode 11 miles. It was a beautiful weekend for bike riding, although a little windy, well a lot windy. But it was nice and cool which was wonderful for our first trips back on bicycles. We both feel great for having extra activity, and besides a little sore can’t wait for our next opportunity. Hopefully tomorrow night after work. Its nice having a trailhead so close. The trial is 12.8 miles long from start to finish, but it’ll be a while before we are biking the entire path, a lot of it is uphill, at a slow grade, which I think is almost more difficult then going up a really large hill all at once, mostly because it takes a lot longer. But that is good, it makes our hearts work a little harder. That path connects with other paths, in theory you could ride over 100 miles without ever leaving a bike trail. This fall we are going to try to be in good enough shape to take a long day trip and take a picnic.
Its a long path to getting healthy, but at least now we are on the road together.
