On Sunday Mary and I decided to ride north on the White Pine Trail to where the pavement end. That's also known as Sand Lake. From our house to downtown Sand Lake via the trail is 18.5 miles. It was a beautiful afternoon for a ride and we were in no hurry to get the miles in, so we had a nice easy ride. We also had ice cream. There is a nice little ice cream place in Sand Lake. Like every other small town in Michigan the employees are all high school girls. We had flurries and then started for home.
On the way south however we rode right by the relatively new Cedar Springs Brewing Company. Since we haven't been there yet we decided to stop in and try their wares. I had a a pale ale and Mary had a sangria. They were tasty and then it was time to get back on the bikes and resume our journey. We finished with 37 miles, 2 ice creams and 2 adult beverages. A very nice afternoon indeed.
