The first bike ride of the season was last Tuesday. It was a beautiful afternoon, and I decided to go out for a jaunt after work. It was a quick 6.5 mile ride, down to the bike path and back. Penelope wanted to go further, but I knew it was probably a good idea to not go full force on my first ride.
Besides, I needed new padded bike shorts. Yes, they are a thing, and YES, they are a great idea.
|Bonus - wildflowers next to the bike path!|
That first ride whet my whistle and I went out on Wedenesday after work, too - this was about a 5 mile ride, though I forgot to start logging, so I'm not entirely sure. I had to hurry home for sometime with the kiddos, but I needed to get a little ride in.

Thursday was totally glorious weather, and I had the day off, but again, sans padded bike shorts, I decided to keep the ride short and sweet - about 4.5 miles, to look at the beach, and then back.
Yesterday, my padded bike shorts came in.
Today, I am not working until 8.
I woke up nice and early.
It isn't supposed to start raining until way after I am done work...
I am going to get on Penelope and just keep going! Welcome, Spring! Let's make this season a great one.
