Road Trip!

I'm not sure what we were thinking on Saturday, but with triple digit temps we left for a little biking adventure. This was our first bike run with people! We normally take off by ourselves and just ride to no place in particular. I'm happy to report that we do play well with others and have been invited back again!!

Out of the group, we actually knew 3 people, well 5, but we'd only met two of them the weekend before. That would be our host and hostess. They are both two of the nicest people you could ever meet. So genuine and real, and fun! We had such a good time.

I do wish I'd gotten more pictures. I was just a little timid about going up and snapping pictures of people I'd never met before. I know, hard to believe me being timid. That didn't stop some people though... it's funny to see how some people react when they see a bunch of bikes together. Everyone was posing for a group pic up on top of the mountain, I'm standing there taking pictures and look over to see complete strangers taking pictures of us too.

This was really a great group of people! I believe we went away that night with some new friends!

This was the view in front of us....

and behind us....

The group before we took off...

I didn't get any after pictures...don't think I had the energy left to even hold the camera. It was a long, brutally hot day, but I'm glad I went!

Hope you guys are having a great Monday!

That looks like a great time!! Glad you play well with others. That is always such a plus when you are in a group setting!! LOL

We went out for a bike ride today in triple digits! Well...feels like was 103. (And with my muscle disease I am not supposed to be in the heat!! I don't listen very well.)

Went on our trikes pedaling for 55 mins!! I was soaked. But felt really good. Hopefully by tonight it will have cooled a tad!!

Love your pics. Next time...don't be shy!! (Lisa....shy??? Humm. Need to thing about that one!! LOL)

We sometimes see bike convoys go past my house on the highway behind my house. We hear them before we see them but it's so cool to see so many of them in a long line. I'm glad you got to make some new friends and I hope the next time you go out for a ride with them, it'll be cooler outside.

Awesome pictures! Did you get any with you in them? I really love the one looking behind you! It's almost as if they're all looking at the camera and posing. :)

Hope you're feeling better!

Looks like a fun time! I am, however concerned about you taking pictures of the view behind you. HOLD ON, for goodness sakes! There is only one of you!!!

We see bikes here all the time, and I wonder how with the heat so intense they where those heavy leather jackets and those ribbed protectors!! It looks like ya'll had a blast!

I still laugh when I think back all those yrs ago to John's bike and I would scream when he'd hit a bump then he'd yell at me and say he's never gonna take me out again.
