Adventures Near and Far

“I just like the way the world looks from a bicycle seat.” 

Saturday was filled with friends, activity, and sunshine.

Eight of us headed out for an adventure.

Destination: Virginia countryside.

And a few of these.

Check out my (super-technical) biking outfit.

I was a little overdressed for most of the day but once we reached fancy-shmancy Varitas and the velour couches I fit right in! 🙂

Mmmmmm, Varitas wine is yummy!

Refueling station!

Valet parking.

The scenery was outstanding. I ♥ green mountains big time.

Our legs and lungs pedaled us about 20 miles of rolling rural roads.  I was the least experienced biker of the group but I managed to keep up, even if I brought up the rear as we climbed Afton Mountain!  I’ve always ridden a bike and I bike commuted an hour a day when I lived in Portland but I’ve never ridden long distances or used biking as exercise.  This ride was hard but so much fun!  I want to do this more often!

Tate and I are heading out on another adventure this afternoon.  We are driving to New York City to celebrate my grandmother’s 90th birthday with a dinner party.  My cousin and his fiance were kind enough to let us crash at their condo in Brooklyn for a few days of family and city fun.  We are taking the long route home-Jersey Shore here we come!

P.S  BTW the first quote is from the best thing to come out of the 90’s, Singles!

    Hope you guys have an awesome time…I think about you a lot and miss seeing you. Will be in for a stretch soon. I am also doing more bike riding. It is hard work but so mind-cleansing. Have fun in New York.

  2. I LOVE the way the world looks from my bicycle seat!! 🙂 What a great ride.
    You look strong & super cute in your dress. Biking in a short skirt or skort is so comfortable.

  3. I love that you are wearing a dress on a 20 mile ride. That is totally my style too 🙂
    Enjoy the City! Especially all the fun creative food up there….and the hipster watching in Brooklyn.
