Is it the weekend yet?

This Saturday it is forecast to be something like 70 degrees and sunny.
I am so excited!
We have our bikes tuned up, our gear all removed from storage, and our biking shorts/shirts/gloves washed and dried. Our helmets are sitting on display in the tv stand, beckoning us to go out and play.

It has been over two years since I was able to ride my bicycle. So I think you can imagine how much I'm looking forward to riding along the west coast of Manhattan. Probably it won't be a long ride, and we'll be navigating new things (In Alabama we would ride on back country roads, so other than a few yahoos in their big cars not wanting to share the road, we didn't have many obstacles, whereas now we will have many more bikers, a ton of pedestrians where there is a shared biker/walker path, and who knows what else).

One day we'll work up to riding all the way to the GWB and across that into New Jersey. I heard there is a route that takes you along the NJ coast and to the ferry that takes you back to Manhattan. Sounds like a ton of fun to me...but that would be a very long ride and we're going to have to take it slow at first...


  1. Have fun! We're going to visit my VERY expectant friend in Panama City...that is, if she's not whisked away to the hospital before we get there. :)

  2. I hope you guys have a wonderful weekend!

  3. That sounds like SO much fun! :)


I'd love to know what you think:
