From the Saddle of my Bike

The Half-way Point of a 20 mile Ride
Hobe Sound National Wildlife Preserve, FL
April 6, 2022
Closing out my last full week in Florida for a couple of months, I am also having a record week of riding my bicycle. I am really putting the miles on the tires and seeing many places in the area. When I summed it up, I have ridden over 70 miles since Sunday with rides planned both today and tomorrow. I doubt I will ride over 100 miles--but 90 is a definite possibility.

Earlier in the week I completed a ride that I had been hoping to get in--riding all the way to the Hobe Sound Wildlife Preserve beach. It was a 20 mile ride, I actually shortened it a bit by parking on Jupiter Island at a public beach park and riding from there. I estimate that I shortened the ride by about 4 miles and avoided riding both ways across one of the local drawbridges.

I have already come to realize that biking in Maryland will be quite different from Florida. There are not nearly as many hills in Florida as Maryland. But, I do know the B&A Trail is relatively flat! I have ridden it in the past.

I was happy to get my ride in yesterday because I spent most of the reminder of the day watching Tiger play at The Master's. Today life is even more complicated because it is opening day for the Orioles who are protected to finish in the bottom three of MLB.

What a great Friday!
