I rode my bike home from work today.
Thursday, June 30, 2011
Almost the full 5+ miles. I did walk part of the way because there was so much traffic I just needed to get off the road and out of the way. I made it home from work in 1 hour. Go me. I did enjoy most of the ride. I saw the chicory in bloom. I even enjoyed the wind wiping through my hair and in my ears. Overall it was a good experience. I wish that the trucks from the Marcellus shale had been using the other road so that I wasn't inhaling diesel fumes for part of my ride but the wind and the pretty flowers the crystal clear water in the river and the huge fish I saw jumping in the first stream I crossed more than made up for that. I was a bit mad at my hubby at first for forgetting to come and get me cause I was only supposed to have ridden 1/2 way but now that I have done it once I am thinking of doing it again, at least once a week when we can cause it truly was fun and oh the calories it burnt. :).
