RISE, Southeastern Colorado Springs, CO. Community Ride
We rode to and in the 1st. RISE, Southeastern area of Colorado Springs, CO. "Community Ride" on Sat. Aug., we headed out from our storage unit in Security and rode over to the "Armed Forces YMCA" for the start of the ride. After staging we headed out to pick up the Sand Creek Trail, north up to the turn around point at Wildflower Park,. The RISE folks handed out "popsicles" to the riders, JoLynn and I ate our apple and wheat thin crackers we took photos, then headed back to the start at the YMCA. We then headed out for lunch at 7-11, got a couple of BIG BITE hot dogs, (yum) and then headed home. As we were riding down the Hancock Expressway back into Security we ran into our friend Allen Beauchamp who was the "ride leader", he stopped at the Depot for a burger and he took the photo of us on our tandem that's now our new "blog header photo". A HOT day 90F+ but a lot of FUN!
