Just a ride around the local area
Sunday August 11th. The weather forecasters said there was a good chance of "HEAVY" afternoon thunder storms today so we decided to just ride around Security/Widefield/Fountain. We got out a bit earlier than usual and it was a really mellow morning, only in the 70F temps, sunny with a nice breeze. We headed up Bradley Rd. from the storage unit, then turned into back streets in northern Security by Piute Park and up past Widefield HS. up to the Security Public Library and into the new section of Security over towards Copperfield, then out to Grinnell and into old Widefield past Widefield Park, then on to back streets and a short but shaded path that ends at Mesa Ridge HS. We then decided it was "nice enough" to head to Fountain on Hwy. 85/87 and then rode over to John Metcalf Park to use the restroom and use it as a turn around point. Heading back again via Hwy. 85/87 to northern Fountain we stopped at Wendy's for chicken nuggets and salad for lunch. The clouds were building quickly so we headed back to the storage unit up Security Blvd and back streets. 19 miles RT!
