But I went for a spectacular ride with my husband. If you read my blog often you know that is a rare occurrence. But it was such a great ride I might be able to convince him to come at least once a month with me! We did a loop that involved 5 towns. It was hilly and somewhat rugged for his first ride of the season but he did great. It was 30 miles which is a respectable distance. Camel's Hump could be seen from many spots and viewpoints.
Camel's Hump from Williston.
Hubby comes up one of many hills like a champ.
Camel's Hump from Hinesburg.
Camel's Hump from Huntington.
Back in Richmond.
I had some other good rides this week but this one was just magical. I had my road bike back, the weather was perfect, hubby was along, and I had energy galore. In fact after we got home I took a short break and took off again. I visited the cemetery and then extended my ride so I ended up with 52 miles for the day. I truthfully felt like I could have just kept going. I hope the weather is nice tomorrow as I can't wait to get back out there. More than once I found myself grinning from ear to ear as I was riding. Bliss!
Oh yeah........I had a really good 8 mile run on Saturday and some good early morning ones during the week. Life is good.
