The trip to visit my friend for her birthday was so much fun! I did rent a bicycle to bike around the lake and had a blast! Very scenic, trees shading the path most of the way, which saved me from getting too overheated. Looking back, I should have had more water with me; I ran out halfway through the ride!
Photos coming soon.....
The hardest part was whenever the ground had an uphill slope to it. Sometimes I would pedal hard until I reached the top of the slope, but other times I just dismounted and walked the bike up. Since I haven't biked in YEARS, I decided to stick to the shortest loop, which was 3.47 miles. I finished in 49 min (with short breaks to drink water).
All in all, a very fun ride! I'm proud of myself for following through with my plan even though it was hot midday.
