Day 3 of National Bike Month 2014
I got up early and headed out before the forecasted rains began and before traffic got heavy on the roads…explored a few new streets this time on my wonderful Trek CrossRip Elite. Loving this bike! Beautiful cloudy morning, humid like summer with the approaching storms, but quiet and easy riding…nice solo ride that made me focus on my form and effort while riding.
Day 3 Ride: 14.5 miles. New route close to home.
Let me tell you what I think of bicycling. I think it has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world. It gives women a feeling of freedom and self-reliance. I stand and rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a wheel…the picture of free, untrammelled womanhood.
