Local area road ride

We took a road ride around Security/Widefield  and Fountain Mesa so JoLynn could get a bit more riding time on her Trident Stowaway I trike.  Our original goal was to end up south in Fountain, CO. have lunch then head back to Wal-Mart on Hwy. 85/87 to pick up her prescription. We rode thru Security and then the back edge of Widefield heading down a mellow country road, to pick up 85/87 heading south but ran into a gate barrier on the old RR crossing side but with the "barrier" there was hardly and traffic so we headed east up the road to Fountain Mesa to find lunch. I was trying to keep her on flat roads to start with but it's a pretty good hill we had to climb (5% grade) min. so it took a while for her to get to the top with the "standard" triple chain wheel gearing on the Stowaway. We will have Angletech put a MTB crank set on it asap, 22/32/44 instead of  the stock 30/40/53 crank set so she can climb hills easier!! She got to the top of the hill and we headed to a Culver's for their fish sandwich and salad, then headed back down the hill and over to the Widefield RR crossing 85/87 to get to Wal-Mart. From there it was back to the storage unit as the sun was going down fast!! :) Here is a You Tube Video of our ride:
