BIKE LOVE!



This morning I commuted 14 miles into the office. The weather was perfect (50 and sunny, clear skies), the path that I follow takes me down the Potomac river along Old Towne Alexandria passed the National Airport , across the 14th Street Bridge and right into the Tidal Basin where the Cherry Blossoms are in full bloom!

I pass by Gravely Point and this was my view this morning .. I kid you not, the planes are on approach and right on top of you...

How can you not love this? (Even if the darn trees to STINK to high heaven!)

Towards the end of my commute I was passed by about 12 cyclists, a local team called Squadra Coppi, riding a double line on their ways into work from the looks of the commuter bags on their backs. I held my line and they swooped on by me pretty quickly. I was proud to have held my line while they passed and the view wasn't too bad either!! *WINK*

While I might be a little saddle sore tonight on my return trip, I am happy as can be.

I LOVE RIDING MY BIKE!! And I missed it more than I could imagine ....

I have 14 miles under my belt and it is not even 9AM! AND it is FRIDAY!!

LIFE IS GOOD! Don't believe me? Just go get out on you bike!

Live STRONG!
