When it was time to ride my husband thought I was brilliant to have waited as it was now warm and sunny and just gorgeous. When we ran it was cloudy and cold. I set off in a terrific mood. I stopped and chatted with a friend I rarely see and he mentioned how pumped I seemed. Well, yeah, I am riding my bike on a gorgeous day. I got to my canopy road and took off down it. I came up behind 4 BIG horses and shouted hi to the riders so they would know I was back there. "On your left" like on the bike path just didn't seem like it would cut it. They thanked me for alerting them to my presence and moved over. I gave them plenty of time as those horses' hind legs looked BIG.
I continued on - starting to go like a bat out of he** down into the gully so I could make it up the other side. Well, I hit a pot hole hard and before I knew it
I started walking and then stopped to call home.
I called my husband's cell phone.
Then I did some more walking.
I am sure many of you are wondering why I didn't change it. Well, no clue how and nothing with me. I know....... brilliant. That will be next summer's goal. For sure.
Back to yesterday.
I next called a neighbor who hopped in her car, came and got me and delivered me home! Yeah for good friends and neighbors.
After school today I took my bike to the bike shop and got it fixed. I learned a few other things about my bike too. This was a very worthwhile trip. The bike got fixed. I learned a few things. And man was the guy who fixed it hot and nice! Truly! And then I had a terrific ride. Hmm. Which one of those things made my day the most?
Then I took one of my favorite rides since I was in the area. What a great Monday afternoon! There was a slight chance of rain but it stayed far far away. A great way to start my week for sure.
Biking on Monday afternoon
Riding on Sheep Farm Road past ......some sheep!
Going past Morgan Horse Farm - lots of horses
lots of young ones.......yearlings????
Can you see the one on the ground that looks dead?
The darker one nudges it and gets it up - it's head is to
the back of the bigger horse.
Now they are both up
Fun to watch!
