9-2023- No particular place to go!!

9-2-2023: Here's a video of our 24 mile total miles ride!

9-3-2023: There are times when we don't have a particular ride in mind and today was one of those times! We haven't gone south much lately so we just headed down the Weber St. Bike Lane thru downtown Co. Springs on Tejon St. Bike Lane. We decided to stop at the Co. Springs Pioneer Museum in their garden area for some shade and eat our morning snack.


Looks like it's undergoing heavy renovation at this time. We enjoyed the shady benches ate our snack and then headed south back on the Tejon St. Bike Lane over to Ivywild area and the old Southgate shopping center to get an Iced Tea, unsweet of course at Panera Bread. Then we headed back, picked up the Cheyenne Blvd. Bike Lane over to the 8th. Street Bike Lane. It's a hard uphill incline up and over 8th. Street, then picked up the Pikes Peak Greenway to America the Beautiful Park for rest break. 

From America the Beautiful Park, took the elevator to the Sky Bridge, then back street to the Pikes Peak Ave. Bike Lane to pick up the Weber St. Bike Lane and headed to the Tasty Freeze Drive Inn for a 2nd. iced tea and afternoon snack! (Jo is a type 2 diabetic, she has to have a small amount of food every 2 hours to keep her blood sugar levels from crashing during exercise!!). It was again, a HOT ride 90 F so as it was 2 PM. we decided to call it a wrap and headed back to the storage unit, then the 1.2 mile walk back to the apartment. Just a ride on a nice day during Labor Day weekend! Hope your weekend was excellent! :)
