On June 5, there was a bike relay/music festival at one of our favourite local parks. Some of the girls from the gym were going and I decided to join their team. My bike wasn’t suitable for trail riding, but because it was a relay, only one team member at a time was on the trail. So I borrowed one.
It was a nice day, not too hot, broken cloud. We did get a shower later in the afternoon, but it didn’t last long. The “lap” was 6 km long, through the park’s hiking and xc ski trails. It was a lot of fun and a great day outside.
On my first lap I did have some technical difficulty with a portion of the trail:
It was fun and reminded me how much I like biking. So the next day I traded in my cruiser/beach bike on one more suitable for this sort of riding!
It will be suitable for both our trails and the bike path in town. Such a pleasure to ride!
Still can’t reveal my latest knitting projects, but soon!
