Adding miles and points to my team for the Ride In The Rain Challenge, I arranged a ride last week with another bike buddy and the start for me was early on a frosty morning.
I started riding from my house in some rather deep frost on the lawns and leaves along the roadside.
On my way to meet Kathy I took a little detour to see how the wintering garden at the elementary school is doing.. It too was frosty and it looks as though they have cleaned it up quite a bit.
You can see that the sun was arriving on order for the day, and as Kathy and I continued on our (hilly) loop ride we were warming up. In the old town of Mukilteo (I live in the newer development up the hill) I couldn’t resist this piece of the past.
More hills really warmed us up. My friend Kathy is a trooper, and managed the hills very well — slow and steady. But I am not sure she will opt for this route again unless she needs hill training for something! I on my e-assist Bike Friday — well, you can guess.
As we neared the end of our ride we stopped for a potty break and a more ‘futuristic’ art project.
Snohomish County Public Art Collection it says…
And now it is Thanksgiving weekend and I have a post to do later for that. Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
