When I last posted about buying my bike, Jan from Colorado asked me to join her in a ride. So, I thought I would take all of you along on a ride with me. Last Sunday I went out for my second ride on my new bike- my second time to ride the B-line trail. I parked at the farmer's market parking lot and headed South.
This is the bridge that goes up over the road. You can ride up and over or wait and cross the road. It is a challenge for me to go up and over. But a good challenge.
Along the way there are informational signs giving the history of the area.
Way south on the trail. Sunny and open. Hot.
From the top of the bridge. The first time I went down it only when I reached the bottom did I learn that I was holding my breath. I haven't ridden a bike for about five or six years. I'm like a little baby learning to walk. And afraid that I am going to fall (wreck) the whole time. Loved it when I was talking to my son about riding and he told me to wear my helmet.

Hope you enjoyed going along for the ride...for more information- here.
The B-line is 3.1 miles each way for a total of 6.2 miles. I rode it last Friday and last Sunday. On Thursday night I went out to ride the Clear Creek trail which is 2.5 miles each way for a total of five miles. I was nearly to the turn-around point when the sky open up. It ha been so dry. Each and every time we get any rain at all we are over-joyed. It wasn't cold so I went on out to the turn-around point and finished my ride in the pouring rain. It was refreshing and kind of fun!
