March 13, 2022-Daylight Saving Times change, and a great late afternoon ride!

Like everyone, at the seasonal time change we were behind our normal starting time but didn't worry as we knew the late afternoon would be warmer and it was a very nice sunny day with just a few clouds and a bit of wind in the afternoon. We took off for the Templeton Gap Trail and was going to ride to it's current ending point but just past Union Blvd. it was blocked off by road construction so we headed over to Nancy Lewis Park to eat our lunch. It was quite crowded so we had to use a picnic table up on a grassy hill. I just took off and got up the hill but poor Jo just doesn't have the "SPIN" capabilities that I have. She got 3/4 up so I pushed her to to top! ;)

After lunch we headed back to the T-Gap Trail and over to the Pikes Peak Greenway, headed north up thru the detour trail to the University Shopping Center and Panera Bread to get some unsweet iced tea. We headed back south on the PP Greenway over to the Palmer-Mesa Greenway, then via, bike lanes over to Midland Trail and up over the bridge to the Olympic/Paralympic Muesum then thru downtown over to the Weber St. bike lane back to home base. We got back about 4 PM. the sun was still quite high in the sky but it was getting windy again as a fast moving cold front will be thru on early Monday. 26 miles RT, 60F+ a great day for a RIDE!
