This weekend was just the best weather! Saturday was a perfect fall day. Temps were in the upper 60s to about 70, sunny and just a little breeze. We hadn’t had a cupcake ride in a long time, probably almost a month, so that was on the agenda.
We had a bit of a tail wind on the way down and fairly zoomed along.
Leaves haven’t turned much yet other than a few rogue trees that wanted to get it over with early for whatever reason.
We arrived in Saratoga at mile 19. Check out my odometer!
I hit 2000 miles! Truthfully, my mileage is 10 miles more than the odometer says because I had to recalibrate for my tires at the beginning of the sesaon and it reset everything. But, it just didn’t feel right unless I saw it on the odometer.
It’s pumpkin spice. Now that it is officially fall, I can embrace all that stuff, and this cupcake was extra worthy! The caramel drizzle made it. I brought along Rebel and just in case you want to see the frosting closer, here you go:
There was a block party going on right outside Park Side Eatery (home of the cupcakes) and we checked that out:
We didn’t dilly dally too long because we had a party to go to later. The breeze that got us to Saratoga had died down pretty well, so we kept up good speed on the way home. Shadow selfie!
John got a phone call on the way home, so we stopped so he could take that and I took some more pictures!
Total miles: 41.5
Average speed: 13.3 mph
Top speed: 26.2 mph
Calories burned: 1245
This seemed like a really easy ride today. I think the cooler temperatures really helped with that, not to mention just being in good bike shape.
2000 miles isn’t really that difficult in the season. It just requires consistency in riding. 2000 miles is around 60,000- 70,000 calories or 17-20 pounds worth of calories. I’ve lost 13 this year, so all that biking has done some good and shows that I am able to lose during biking season 😀
We showered quick when we got home and headed back down to Saratoga by car this time for youngest niece’s birthday celebration! We made mini pizzas:
And the usual cake.
Devon turned 12 and next year she will be an official teenager!
