Taking the Scenic Route

There is something magical in the way a bicycle empowers you to take the long way home.  While possible in a car, there is something about the inertia of the fastest way from A to B that keeps you on route and in your seat.  With the bicycle I am always looking for an excuse to pick a new route, head by the beach or through the hills instead of around them.  Today was hot and clear, the chance foe a clear view of the islands and the water called me up into the hills.  With the errands done and a little extra time on the clock I was able to make the right choice.

It was good, I needed to get the heart pumping, and it paid off.

Take the long way home next time while the summer days are still hanging on!

      Thanks, it was not easy at first to push a smile at that point in the climb, then I realized I was trying to hard and started to laugh, this is supposed to be fun, and it is, ended up with a few good pics out of it.

    Unfortunately, the summer days are not with us in Colorado anymore. However, a wonderful string of beautiful fall weather is upon us. I will enjoy the ‘indian summer’ while the temps are still above freezing, as in another month, they’ll have dipped far below.

    Cheers!
