The warm sticky weather continues around here. Rain was predicted to start Saturday afternoon, so we decided to head out early for our ride. That meant no cupcake, but oh well 😀
We headed towards the lake after a swing by the post office. It’s nice to be able to take small packages there by bike. We really live in a great location.
Then it was path time:
Just about to the nice shady part. We stopped by a little memorial:
There is a bench here as well. Unfortunately, this young woman committed suicide and this memorial is to raise awareness for suicide and that you are not alone.
The path was pretty busy. Lots of tourists. That means you can’t really zoom down like you might otherwise because some people don’t understand path and trail rules.
On to the lake. It would be a good day to take a dip. Even though it was still morning, it was pretty warm.
We sat in the shade and relaxed a bit.
Our bikes took a rest, too.
We scrapped our original planned route because of the heat and sun and went out on one of our old routes towards our previous house. This path is mostly gravel and there was a patch were it was really loose and thick:
That’s fishtail land, so we walked over that bit.
It’s really a beautiful path, though.
Hot and sweaty, but happy riding.
You can see John in my glasses! Hi John!
We ended up with 30 miles, which was a decent ride.
John had been out of town at the end of the week and brought home some treats, so that was what I had in place of a cuppie. These are macarons and delicious!
A little small, though. About the size of a peppermint patty. I had these with an icy latte.
We had huge storms come through later in the day, which brought much needed rain. It cleared up later and we were able to walk downtown for a Saturday night out.
Very good weekend overall.
