6 Miles Isn't Bad

Hubby and I went for our bike ride on Saturday evening. Since we were out of practise, we were hoping to just make it back in one piece! I have to tell you though the hardest part about the ride was figuring out how to get the bike rack onto the car!

Once we got to the bike trail the rest was a breeze and that expression "just like riding a bike" is very true. No accidents, no problems, just fun! It was a nice warm sunny evening for a ride and the trail was so peaceful. We saw a deer, ducks, geese, lots of gorgeous wild flowers, waterfalls, rock formations, I was so busy enjoying that I only took a few shots...

He so enjoys getting his picture taken, lol, but he is a good sport!

Wild Flowering Dogwood, was everywhere through the forest, just beautiful!

We really enjoyed this trip, having time just by ourselves and the peace and quiet. We are going to do this again in the near future, and take a picnic supper. Can't wait!


  1. Looks like an awesome bike ride,but when I tried getting back on one a few years ago, my balance had found someplace else to go! I might have to try again this year, if I get a comfy seat first!! And pump up the tires, since they've not been used... Nice pictures too.

  2. Looks and sounds wonderful! It makes me think I should get out on my bike....I would do it more often if it wasn't for the hills and wind!!

  3. Together time, thats what makes it so neat! Sounds like your picnic will be fun!

    Neat pictures too!

  4. You live in a beautiful area! I am glad you are finally getting to enjoy being outside again. Sampson and Dew must be happy with warmer weather again.

  5. Hi Tina
    We are very impressed with your six miles! Well done. Great pictures even with your camera shy hubbie!
    We had a trailer for the bikes for Harry, our last basset! Perhaps you should get two and take Sampson and Honey Dew with you.
    It certainly builds up the leg muscles.

  6. Wow, Tina... That looks great. I'm glad you shared the pictures.
