High On Bike

A Bellinghamster On Wheels

Sunday’s Ride


Need to pedal off that ice cream
After spending a wonderful but intense, nonstop four days with my 3 1/2 year old granddaughter, I couldn’t wait to take my bike out on Sunday and wallow in the solitude of the trails. The weather was cool and overcast but dry and even though weekends can mean a lot of trail traffic, they were less busy than I expected. I spent a glorious 80 minutes exploring different side trails, stopping for a couple of Kodak moments, and enjoying the simple pleasure of being outdoors. Girl and bike…perfect.
Good thing my bike isn’t too heavy.
Off the beaten path.
Taking in the view.

I ride because it's fun. It's also healthy, good for the environment, and my gas budget but if it wasn’t fun, none of that would matter. It's what gets me on my bike almost every day, even when I'm tired, not feeling my best, or just not in the mood. No other form of "exercise" has equaled it. I used to love to run but I was injury-prone and couldn't do it every day. I certainly couldn't jog down to the store and come home with dinner. Walking is okay but definitely falls around midpoint on the fun scale. I enjoy it, especially when I'm walking with a friend, but am not exhilarated by it. So I ride.
