It's that time of the year, having to use the recumbent style exercise bike and watch YouTube trike and bike videos, while waiting for those days of dry trails/roads and warmer temperatures! We did get out on Monday the 21st., (we are poor but retired!!), it was sunny and almost 50 F. We wanted to see how the "bike lane", on the new Centennial Blvd. South Extension came out after months of construction to make the road go from Chestnut Street up to Fillmore Street. Wow, it's good but it's all "uphill" so we got a great workout, LOL! We found out they continued to bike lane all the way down to the Garden of the Gods Road so now we have two ways to get to our local recumbent dealer, Angletech, [www.cycledifferent.com]. The bad thing is the traffic from Fillmore to GoG Road is intense but it's good to have a easier way up to the shop if for some reason the Sinton Trail is closed!
We rode to pick up the Sinton Trail, heading south to the Pikes Peak Greenway, turned north to head over to the University Village Colorado Center, headed to Panera Bread for our brown bag lunch and unsweetened HOT tea as the temps drop much faster in these winter afternoons! With the wind getting a bit stronger and the waning sunlight we decided to just head back to the apartment and call it a day! Felt SO GOOD to ride after a few days being stuck inside using the recumbent style exercise bike!! 21 miles RT.
