Spring and Bikes

It’s finally here! Spring and our first bike!

Keith’s bike came in a at the end of March and we have put about 120 miles on it so far in training rides. Today was the longest so far and also the longest that Keith has ever ridden. He did great. After we had some oatmeal, we started out about 8:30 am. It was a bit chilly (54F) but gradually warmed up throughout the day to a high of 74F. It was threatening to rain so we took rain gear in our handlebar bags, which did the job of keeping it from raining. We stopped in Eaton Rapids for a “second breakfast” at on all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet. I think they lost money on us! Definitely did on Keith.

This afternoon we planted two cherry trees in the back yard. Hopefully the deer won’t eat them first!
