Ride 72 - 25 miles Beautiful Back Roads

OK - Not another boring ride report. Yup!! Went on aride with the man I am dating! This is his home turf - so he is a happy camper on these roads. Lots of cows, etc. Great ride. We did about 14 mph avg which was about rogth as I was recovering from yesterday's record speed ride.

It is so much fun to go on a date and ride together. I do alot of group rides becuase I want to ride with people - but it's even nice to ride with someone you are close to. I am very lucky to be dating someone I can ride with!

OK - 25 Miles...14 MPH Avg Sunny, fun!

OK - not very exciting report -but I am definitely glad it's warming up - not raining and I am healthy enough to get on a bike. :cool:

It is very nice you found someone to ride with. It is always hard as everyone has different levels of fitness and capability.

It is also nice to finally get out and ride some longer distances. This past weekend it was 42 and over-cast. Even so it was a great ride from our house to my parents. 29 miles in about 1:45. It was so nice to ride through the countryside. Since November its we have basically been in a deep freeze (thats what I get for living the frozen North). This week Winter is still making sure we haven't completely forgotten about is, as the morning have been 19F. Tomorrow we warm up to the low 50's during the day, but it will also bring rain... oh well the plant do need water every so often.

Enjoy the Spring riding,
