When it is cooler near the lake, you just go west a bit and you have a lovely spring day. Today: case in point: 50s in our town,
68 in Caldonia, Illinois near Rockford.
Fireman and I rode our bikes at Rock Cut State Park.
It was all fun on the trails until We hit the hills.
I don't like to call trouble to me, but I kept thinking, if I crash and ruin my knitting wrists I'll be so unhappy.
The trails were hard, the hills were harder...and yes I got off and walked my bike up several of them,
and the downhills were kinda scary.
Still I won't get thrown from a bike like I would on a horse, and the workout was great. I will ride again soon, but on the flat please.
The true reason behind the drive out there was so I could visit my new maine coon Kitten again.
Here is Fireman with Fezzik's mom, Tilly.
Fezzik is too cute for words. Period.
Let the countdown begin.
He comes home May 7th.
and here he is .....
Oh and there was knitting. I finished the shawl stitches on the ride to the State Park and I fringed the ends on the way home.
It is blocking right now.
I cannot wait to show it to you tomorrow.
Would you rather ride a horse or a bike?
