    20 miles

    Ya'll were right, 20 miles came really fast.
    It was harder than I thought it would be cause the route I picked had LOTS of HUGE hills, two that I had to walk up on the way back. But they sure were fun to ride down! I saw some deer, and a bunch of dead stuff on the road and the sides of the road *blech*, and got chased by a large black dog, and barked at by countless others. Even though it was a hard ride, it was a great one, and I can't wait to go again

    Didn't you just do 10 then other day? Good work, but be careful not to overdo it. Spring is in the air.

    Keep riding that route and soon, you won't be walking up those hills. Keep up the good work!
