Earlier this week, I was feeling restless. It was a beautiful day outside so I made a spontaneous decision to go for a bike ride down the fabulous trail near our house.
It was an amazing adventure! I saw all sorts of beautiful things, birds, caterpillars, a muskrat, even a snake, and lots of wildflowers.
As you can see, this trail goes through the woods and through fields.
You might be thinking, so what, just another bike ride.
I went over 20 miles! On my hybrid mountain bike. Wearing a pair of cut-off old jean shorts, which you don’t see too often among those hard-core bicyclists all decked out in their technical gear, cruising down the trails in proper form.
You know me, I just love being on the trails. It’s the best remedy for any kind of blues or anxiety I might be feeling. Can’t wait to go again!

a bikeride is on my things-to-do-soon list too. We have a great riverwalk here and it’s so pretty. always fun and relaxing!
Fresh air is good for the soul, though I could have done without the reptile. Love the flowers you saw along the way. 20 miles thats quite a ride. Hope you get lots more riding done in the Summer.
Fresh air and a little quit time. Sounds great. Here we are already in the 90’s, – 100. To hot for anything outside. I am not a real warm person. I like sweatshirt weather and I don’t think we seen that this year. It went from cold to hot.
Hope you have a great summer. Lots of crafty things going on I hope.
Beautiful… I love a long, meandering bike ride on a lovely trail like that. It definitely feeds the soul, doesn’t it? Thank you for sharing, Terri!! xox
Um…thanks for not posting a picture of the s****. That would have freaked me out. Otherwise it looks like a fabulous ride.
I love these kind of trails. Can’t wait for the kids’ bikes to be repaired so we can do a goo ride together.
That would be a fabulous time!!! Hope you are refreshed now:)
There’s nothing like a bit of spontaneity, fresh air and freedom to blow away any blues. What a wonderful trail you have to travel – no wonder you can’t wait to get out there again!
Lucky you! It looks like so much fun! If I had a place to ride like that, I might buy a bike:)
Good for you, Terri! 20 miles is impressive! (my hinder hurts just thinking of that many miles on the bike!)
Wow…what a ride…and what gorgeous scenery you had!
It looks like it was a beautiful day for a ride! It’s so nice to be able to just get out and clear your head! Beautiful trail!
Hey, that’s MY bike trail… of course, I give up long before you do, and collapse onto the porch of a coffee place. But then I draw, so it’s still time well spent.
Hey. maybe there’s a connection between the biking (exertion+nature) and the getting your creativity recharged.
So plan a bike trip as part of Assignment 4!
