Yesterday I did my first 20 mile ride (21 actually) on my new trek 7.2fx. I bought the bike May 17th so I've owned it about a month and a half. So far I've ridden a little over 150 miles on the bike. 112 in so far in June with hopefully some commuting miles tomorrow. In addition to the running I've done 27 miles of run/walking this month. At this point, I've nearly got the bike outfitted. I've got bottle racks, bike lock, and underseat pack with emergency tools, spare tube, patch kit etc. I still need to get a frame pump.
My 20 mile ride became a little more interesting when I happened upon this.
We had had storms the night before and the tree had fell across the trail. Earlier I'd heard a limb crack and fall in the woods. Otherwise the ride went fairly smoothly.
Last week, I was riding down the trail and happened along this.
The deer stopped in the road and didn't want to move. I stopped there for a minute before deciding to turn around and go back. I had a similar thing happen yesterday. I didn't get a picture but the deer crossed in front of me. I didn't think much of it but when I got up there, the deer was standing in the woods not 20 feet away. Fortunately I just kept on biking and she just watched me pass. It was almost as if she knew we wouldn't get off the trail.
