Not much riding lately, RATS!

November has seemed to be just a bit crazy for us, between personal stuff and weather, haven't had a chance to get out on the bicycle at all, MAJOR BUMMER!! Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and they are telling us were gona get snow and freezing drizzle so it's looking like December before I get to ride again, RATS!! Hope the weather is better your way and you get in a excellent ride! :)

A ride with a mission

Last Saturday we took a bicycle ride on a sunny and warm Halloween day, it's on of our favorites using back streets, bike lanes and trails and normally heading to Manitou Springs. Today we rode to "Old Colorado City" on the westside of Colorado Springs to find a "British Tea Shoppe". My wife Jo was needing to measure a tea pot to make a "coozie", which is a cover for our Daughter Jenn's Tea Service.

What we didn't realize was that the local area merchants were doing a "Trick or Treat" at their stores so we had to wade thru a large crowd to get to the shop. I stood guard on the bicycles and people watched while she got her measurements. After that we headed to the Midland Trail and rode to 31st. then did a turn around and headed back home. It was a good 20 mile ride and we really enjoyed it! :)
