We now have a caretaker for Jim a few days a week, so I was able to ride today. These little challenges have given me reason to ride places I’ve hesitated to venture in the four years we’ve lived here. It won’t be long before I’ve covered all the roads close enough for me to do in a day ride, but today I was on a road I’ve never even been on in a car…Fairmount Road. I hadn’t expected to find many arches. I found a few, but that’s not all I found…I found a missing road.
This was another “Riding with Nancy”… #4, I think. It didn’t turn out to be such a long ride…7.6 miles, but the route like all the other places around me, had some hills. I didn’t have to get off, but I was chugging up some very slowly. Neither speed nor distance are my goals. I had a good time and that’s all that matters to me.
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.
