Now I know how my dog, Oreo feels!!

Monday, February 28, 2011

We went to Brazos Bend State Park yesterday and took our bikes with us. Rode several trails and ended up going for 1 hour with a 5 minute break in the middle. It was fabulous - it was sleeveless weather with a bit of a breeze. We were riding at a nice speed and I could feel the breeze in my face and I just had to laugh. I know this is exactly how our dog Oreo feels when she sticks her head out the window when we are driving in our car. That really is a smile on her face. Wow I feel like a kid again!!! We had to race our bikes passed to 6 - 7 ft alligators on the path and saw several small ones. (see mySpark page for pics of alligators from a previous trip to Brazos Bend. ) We loved it so much that we bought a year long pass to Texas State Parks.

  Your ride sounds so fantastic! I am eagerly awaiting the warm weather to come so that I can get back on and ride my dear bike! I miss it so much. I am a fair weather rider so I stopped riding in November. Loved hearing about your experience! emoticon

    I can't wait to take my bike out again! My fiancÚ got me a bike last summer, though I hadn't ridden one in about 10 years. I love it :) Unfortunately there are a couple more months until the weather is nice enough here emoticon
