Super Bowl Sunday slurpee ride

It has been a long time since our last post together it being December and January in Michigan the weather is so unpredictable. But today it was sunshine and almost 50 degrees. So we had to take advantage of it so off we went. I have mostly been riding indoors on a turbo trainer so it felt so good to get out and ride some hills.

We decide to try a new stretch of bike path just built in our town, it runs about three miles along a pretty busy rural road. We were glad that our city decided to put it in. I had made several comments to my wife "Boy it would be nice if they put in a bike path there" as we would commute that section of road.There is a lot bicycle and foot traffic that is along that stretch of road. There is also a stretch of path they added in the down town section that I had made comments to my wife.

So back to the ride, we over dressed mostly do to the "maternal instinct of mom" so the Slurpee that was promised in the prior agreement started to sound good, how ever we only had enough money for for the big Guy so I settled for the last part of a cold French press from earlier in the day.

I have to give my Daughter Kristan a plug because I wore the cycling hat she made me out of wool I love it it is my favorite hat.

She has an etsey shop She is very creative. so visit her shop.
also grants new favorite bicycling shirt from the Gap.

Well that is it for now The Biped-alist team

  1. I hear you on the "Dressed for mum" thing: my wife is from a hot country so she's (rightly) cautious of temperatures, but with all the hills locally we often dind the boys need to get rid of a layer after a few hundred metres.
