The unseasonably warm weather in Michigan the last few days allowed us to get outside on our road bikes. Mid 50's and sunny in February is fantastic riding weather.We actually got out for two rides this weekend.
On Saturday Mary and I met up with Pam and her son Chad from our JDRF team. We rode an easy 15 miles north on the White Pine Trail to Rockford. It was my second time riding this year and Mary's first so we just wanted something simple to start to slowly get back into cycling shape.
On Sunday Mary and I rode south on the White Pine Trail to Riverside Park in Grand Rapids. There were a lot of people out on the trail. Quite a few cyclists, some families out walking, and a roller-blader or two. We rode a total of 17 miles. I don't remember ever riding two days in February before, much less two consecutive days. Nice to get the season off to an early start.
Two days riding on the WPT also makes me ask this question. Am I the only one that didn't get a fat bike for Christmas?
