2023-10-Catching up as usual, here on the blog!!

 Well, things never change and as usual I'm behind on the blog updates so here it goes! It's been about the normal as far as rides go. On 10-8 we rode over to Manitou on the Midland Trail and the weather has been excellent! 

On 10-9 we did the did the Foothills Trail.

On 10-15 we rode the "Motorless Morning" ride thru the Garden of the Gods, no cars allowed from 5 am to 12 noon!!

Our favorite, "Trike Personality" on YouTube is Sylvia Halpern and her trike, "Myrtle the Turtle". Out of the blue she called us and we found out she was in Boulder, CO. getting in some rides in that area and wanted to go on a RIDE with us!!!! So of course we gave her a tour of the "Garden of the Gods" and then Foothills Trail, over to Angletech we she got to visit with Kelvin and the Staff. From there we rode the Sinton Trail over to the Pikes Peak Greenway. Picked up the Cascade St. bike lane over to have lunch at Panino's Restaurant downtown Co. Springs. Via more bike lane over to the "Sky Bridge" at the US Olympic/Paralympic Museum for a grand view of Colorado Springs and America the Beautiful Park. Headed back to here campground in Manitou Springs via the Midland and Creek Walk Trails. We said our "so longs" and then headed to the storage unit, 40 mile day of pure FUN with Sylvia, she's a bright, bubbly in real life as on YouTube, it was just "awesome" to get to meet and RIDE with her and Myrtle the Turtle. She's heading south for the Winter Months in her Truck and Trailer touring set up!
