The plan was to go for a 3 hour bike ride; it turned out to be a 3 and a half hour bike ride. And you know what? I didn't mind one bit. The day was so beautiful that I feel like I could have rode forever. The weather was perfect and the scenery was gorgeous. I'm really falling in love with biking. I have gotten more comfortable on the bike and with riding on the road. There are still some things I need to work on (like turning my head to see if cars are coming behind me) but I think that I am progressing well.
The great thing about today was that it didn't feel nearly as difficult as the last time we did a long ride. I guess my legs are getting stronger!
I plan on being very productive exercise-wise this week. I will post my plan for the week tomorrow.
