Ahhh ... today is PERFECT riding weather. Shoot, who am I kidding? Today is perfect HEATHER weather :) Mid-70's, light breeze, bright blue sky and big puffy cumulus clouds in the sky. Sweet serenity.
I did the 25 mile B&O trail. Though, I decided riding alone for that long would be boooorring!!! Fortunately, my BlackBerry has I <3 Radio and I tuned in to Top 40 with Ryan Seacrest!!! I turned up the volume, fixed my phone so it was stuck in my shirt and pedaled away!!! It was so beautiful and so fun!!!
About 2/3 of the way through, I go by my aunt and uncle's house. So, I stopped by knowing my cousins would be home. I think I freaked their freak when they saw me. Seriously, my riding gear makes me look like Bret Michaels sister or a band member from White Snake. Word. The yellow sweatband is helpful for the SWEAT *as an added bonus it holds my hair whispies out of the way!* and my riding gloves are straight up Miami Vice. It was fun chatting with my little cousins and I even got to met on of my boy cousins' friends. Although, I think I totally freaked him out. I was talking a million miles a minute and pretending to be gangster???? Yeah, it was weird. I'm gonna blame that craziness on the endorphins and not that fact that I had Vodka in my water bottle. (I kid! I kid ... or do I??? LOL)
I made it home happily. Hey, Lisa, this ride was MUCH better than our ride last month :) Of course this time I had on my riding shorts, and it's about 20 degrees cooler with zero humidity ... unlike last time when the humidity nearly suffocated me out in the country where I thought you took me to die ... :)
