Uhm. I wasn't here for awhile. I apologize. I'm not going to say it's not going to happen again either. Just so we are all on the same page! But, I've had a few adventures this summer, so here we go!
I got a new bike at the beginning of the summer, to replace that one that was stolen a few years ago. Stolen from the patio at my old house! And yes, it was locked up! I've biked over 250 and miles this summer (there's an app for that!) and hit up some pretty good trails (and some not so great ones as well). I think my favorite thus far has been the Cape Cod Rail Trail!
The Nashua River Rail Trail was one of my first bigger rides, I did 10 miles one day and then 12 the next. I realized that a new bike seat was going to be required to make this a long term activity!
Of course there were pigs on the trail?
A bit quieter part of the trail!
This trail was down near Pawtucket, Rhode Island
Only 2,000 miles to Key West, Florida!
Biking along the river in Rhode Island
This is along the Cape Cod Canal (different from the CC Rail Trail!), there are trails on both sides of the canal.
So far, I've done one side twice, mostly because it's generally a pain to cross over the bridge to do the other side!
Yesterday I did my longest ride yet, 17.63 miles on the Minuteman Bikeway that starts right near where I used to live in Cambridge (I started at the other end though, and then turned around in Arlington where I found a town celebration going on and so many people it would have been impossible to continue biking the path for a bit!). Hopefully we have a mild and short winter so I can keep riding as long as possible!
