Bike Ride #1

Ryan and I were finally able to take our bikes out for their first ride. We have been pretty busy the last couple weekends, and the weather has been less than stellar, so when I saw the weather was going to be nice this weekend the first thing I thought was BIKES. Now I have to say, it is pretty hilly around our house. We tried to chart a course where we were going downhill all the time but obviously that wasn't possible :). When we got back we did a Google map to see how far it was, and it was about 6.5-7 miles - not too shabby with all the hills and on our beach cruisers on our first journey. We rode to the beach, then up and down the beach, then back home. I think it took us about an hour and a half or so. Depending on the weather (and the soreness of our bodies, hehe), maybe we will pack up the bikes and take them down to the beaches further south tomorrow. We only got one picture, so this post will be much shorter than the past ones :)

PS They painted the bike lane red on the strand... Ryan and I were quite confused. Maybe it is to remind people not to park there, or maybe not to hit the bikers or walkers. Who knows?!
