41st Anniversary Bicycle Ride

Wife and I are celebrating our 41st anniversary, to include a bicycle ride. Neat, right?

Regardless of what others might think, I think it's VERY neat. Best of luck to you and the miss's on the day and ride. May the road hold for you many more years and miles of mutual enjoyment!!

I think it's great! I wish I could get my other half interested but she says no, maybe in time I can convince her of the health benefits

I think we wouldn't bike for the health benefits alone.

It is exhilirating and relaxing and exciting to both of us.

We are headed out this morning on an early morning ride with some friends on the Highline Canal, a local 70 mile beautiful trail popular here in the Denver area.
