Combo bike trail and first time road ride, also longest of the season

This evening I did my longest ride so far this season, a little over ten miles. I started at one of the local parks MUP's and then hit the streets, and finished back on the MUP. I was a little nervous about riding on the road but, it went off without a hitch. There were a couple of somewhat embarrsassing moments, like that one darn hill I ended up walking up. Or the group of real road riders that passed me like I was road kill but, other than that it was a nice evening. I think it time to turn in because I am dead tired and you would not believe how many typos I had to correct while typing this thread.

Congratulations! It reads like the riding was a success.

BTW, there was one typo you forgot to correct. I bolded it for you. You typed "real" for "fellow"; using "real" implies you are an "unreal" cyclist, when we all know you are every gear-inch an equal for anyone riding.
