So yesterday was Martin Luther King Day, and since Tyler works for the government, he had the day off! We were of course excited to be able to spend a day together. And since the weather has warmed up recently, we decided to go for a bike ride.
(Right after we bought my bike the weather dropped to like -15 degrees so riding a bike outside was pretty much impossible. We tried it once when it was 20 degrees outside and afterwords I felt like Harry and Lloyd...except on separate bikes) :)
But the weather was a lovely 60 degrees yesterday and just PERFECT for a bike ride!
Normally we ride down to the Big Dam Bridge (about 4 miles down) and back. Not too difficult, I realize, but I'm still a beginner. :)
But yesterday we crossed over the Bridge--which was awesome by the way-- and Tyler actually convinced me to make the entire trail loop! I really don't know how he did it. I mean, we didn't even know how many total miles it was.... we simply said, we'll try. Even if that meant making it half-way before falling over dead. Eeesh....
But I'm glad to say that we finished the trail in 1 hr, 45 minutes (about 13-15 miles, we're not too sure). That may be ridiculously slow overall, but seriously it was so fun!
The beautiful scenery during the first half, and avoiding be hit by a car while riding through downtown... such a variety! :)
