The Habitat bike ride was fun. Cary and I met our friend Jason at the start of the ride, and we started at 9:00AM. It was a bit cold outside, but the sun helped. Jason is an experienced mountain biker, so he was faster than Cary and me. He waited for us a few times, but got way ahead of us after we left the rest stop at the 18-mile point.
The last 13 miles were pretty hard. At one point, we realized that we were about a mile from home. Had we really wanted to call it quits, we could have turned right instead of left and been home in a few minutes, but at that point in the ride, we only had about 3 miles left to go.
The remainder of the ride was on the American Tobacco Trail, which was a pretty leisurely ride.
After we finished the ride, it was off to Only Burger for cheeseburgers and fries. Then, after the post-ride fatigue set in, we took a nap.
Saturday night was Karen’s Halloween party. Cary wore a very accurate Gryffindor costume, and I wore my Richard Castle costume:
It was a fun, but very tiring day. Cary and I will be running on Tuesday, so hopefully, the soreness from the bike ride is gone by then.
