Friday Afternoon Solo Bike Ride: 54 miles
I got in a good swim this morning, and then lifted weights. Stopped off at the store afterwards, and got some junk food. Ate too much junk for breakfast this morning, so I really had to go for a bike ride this afternoon. And the weather was so nice – mid 60’s and clear. There was a wind coming from the north down the Delaware River during my entire ride. Drove over to Washington Crossing and parked on the NJ side of the river. Used my CX bike today, and kept it in the little ring most of the ride. I was out to just get some miles on. Had to break my legs in a bit. Had two bottle of Gatorade along, too. Felt OK during the whole ride. Went up the PA side and then came back the NJ side. There were some people on the trails, but not all that many. CLICK HERE to see the route. I hit both the Erwinna and Uhlerstown covered bridges on this ride.
