BIKERS

Hut and I have become "bikers". No not the motorcycle kind, but the bicycle kind. You know how much we love yard sales and buy just about everything at them. Well we came across a great deal on 2 mountain bikes. So I talked Hut into buying them, hoping he would go riding. These bikes were modified with handle bars so that you sit up straight instead of leaning over, much better for us "older" people. Well we pumped up the tires, Hut got a bigger seat and a bike horn and off to the nature walk we went. Yes you can ride bikes on the nature walk. I have not mastered the art of taking pictures while riding so I only have a couple of still shots to show you. I have to say that on Sunday morning we rode 3 miles and yesterday we rode 2, but it was really windy and hard to pedal into the wind(yes, we're whimps,lol). We are taking tonight off and tomorrow we will be trying out another bike path.

You are living my dream. I would love to have bicycles and go cycling with my spouse. It ain't gonna happen,so I'll just live vicariously through you and Hut.
