I haven’t been out with any photography club friends for so, so many months. When emailing with a fellow member, I mentioned I had been shooting a little on hikes and bike rides. He said he’d like to go with me sometime. Today, was supposed to be dry (it was) and in the mid-50’s (it couldn’t possibly have been), so I took him up on it. I’d warned him to wear shoes he didn’t mind getting muddy. I was in my heaviest winter coat with a scarf around my neck and he came in shorts!
He told me he hasn’t walked in awhile, so I chose a couple of the flattest hikes in Broad Run Park. We began on the Riparian Ramble Trail and returned on the Lowland Plains Trail. My goal is to do them all and these two were still on my list. It was another 2-2 1/2 mile trip and we agreed that it was fun to shoot with somebody once again.
For now, loaded touring isn’t possible due to my husband's health issues. I’m used to cycling by myself, but I can't go off and leave him. Cycle 365 has motivated me to not give up riding just because I don't have time to go as far or do awesome rides like I did in the past.
