SparkPoints ride or garage sales......???

Tuesday, April 20, 2010

Well, the nice weather seems to be back! Hooray! Last year I made it a point to get on my bike every night after dinner, around 7 p.m. and go for a 40 minute bike ride on the trail behind our house. It was a fun way to get in some exercise, so I am making it "my" time again this year. It's a little hilly in a couple of spots, but since I've been working out doing my strength training, I am not as winded getting to the top of that hill! Just goes to show that little things do add up.
I have one of those niffty little computers on my bike that tells me how fast I am going and how far I have gone. I try to put 500 miles on my bike every summer, so this year I will aim for 550! I need to do a few lonnnng rides on the weekends (2-3 hour rides) to meet this goal. I take my bike to the "rails to trails" where it is nice and flat. It makes for a very enjoyable Saturday afternoon ride when the weather is nice. Hubby is going away this weekend (opening day of fishing) so it would be a good day to do just that! However, I know where there is a neighborhood garage sale this weekend, and I want to go to that also! ride, garage sale.....?

    Way to Go!

    Yes! Yes! Bike Ride! You lucky YOU! You have RAILS to TRAILS to ride on!!! Wow!

    Super job tracking you're miles. I was advised by a good friend to track my miles which I have since 2005. I can look back and remember every ride. It is gratifying to look back and see the miles that have all too quickly gone by.

    The best to you on your journey making life an adventure! emoticon

    I say do BOTH!!!!! Garage sale in the morning and bike in the afternoon/evening! I am going to discover the rail to rail system and take advantage of it too since road biking isn't very safe here. I've never tracked my miles but maybe I will set a goal for myself too!
