Photos from a Sunday Trail Ride

Our free candy van

Sunday morning felt nice and easy. Lionel Richie was really on to something.

Kenny and I rode along with our bikes loaded in the “Free Candy” van. The cloud ceiling was hanging low and looked like cotton batting across the sky. The temperatures stayed in the very comfortable upper 50s all day.

I sat there on the super-70s sheepskin seat cover making a deal with myself that  I would work toward putting some of my fear demons to bed on this ride; that I would give myself a break and relax.

After unloading our bikes, we headed down the dusty road towards the woods and I felt… hopeful.

Heading along the dusty road

Throughout the day, I didn’t feel that same hesitation that I’d had about things just two weeks prior. I felt more natural heading up and down the hills, more fluid riding through the tight trees and over obstacles.

Overall I’m tip-toeing forward but at least I’m going in the right direction. I feel pretty good about that.

Its great to have people to watch and learn from. What I appreciate most is their patience and encouragement.

Another great day in the books. Can’t wait until next time!

    Great shots Fuzzy, and sounds like it was a great day.

    I mentioned to a friend recently that I’d had a couple of rides that were kinda ruined by rain…..and then he reminded me that even the worst day out on the bike would always beat the very best day at work…..

    Hearing that made me reach for the keys……
