My Fantastic Bike Tour!

Sunday, October 19, 2014

The week of October 6, I went on a five-day bike tour to Acadia National Park in Maine. I had been training for it since June, and the training paid off. I was the only woman of 13 who did ALL of the activities! It was an amazing accomplishment for me. I was always one of the last women to come in from a ride because I am very slow. But, this particular tour said that we do not have to have any particular speed. So, this was the trip for me! I biked 132 miles that week.

Here are some photos...

We ate really well!

We saw beautiful scenery!

We met a blue lobster!

We biked


and hiked!

And my greatest accomplishment of the week was riding to the top of Cadillac Mountain to watch the first sunrise in America!

It was an incredible experience, and I hope to do it again!

I'm back now, and trying to get back on track. I had a lot of catching up to do at work last week, so I didn't eat well or get much exercise in. But I think I can start this week off on better footing! I need to start training for my next ride... wherever that will be!!!

    Hiking, kayaking, biking (eating...yum). Yes, that had to be a fantastic trip. Great job! Woo Hoo! You did it! Trained, trained, trained and followed through with the challenge. I am so very impressed the accomplishment. And thanks for putting the beautiful photos on your spark page. Seeing the photos are motivating...particularly the one with the bike in the air and the sun in teh background.

    Great job lady!
