Still Riding

It's been a downright wierd fall in regards to weather this year in Northern Michigan. This time last year I'd already been out skiing a few times. This year, I've been out on my road bike twice in the last week. And it wasn't really that cold. I'd go so far as to say that yesterday it was actually quite balmy. Sarah and I went for a leisurely ride up the shore with Hugh and Denise. They left thier road bikes in France this fall thinking they wouldn't need them here before they went back in the spring. Luckily they were able to cobble together a couple of bikes, and we took off from their house right around noon. We only rode to Island View and back, and we rode quite slowly. But it was still nice to get out in the fresh air. If we don't get snow soon, Chris had been talking about heading back out into the woods after deer season is over (Thursday is the last day). So charge up the lights, and maybe we'll be able to hit boyne or the loop once more before the bikes get put away for good.
