riding a bike

We finally got out for our bike ride this morning!  It was a gorgeous, but hot and humid, day.

Pre-ride fuel: a green smoothie.

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 scoop chocolate Amazing Grass
  • 2 cups spinach

Then, it was off to ride.

We headed out to the Minuteman Trail to ride from Arlington to Bedford.

The trail was not as crowded as we thought it would be for mid-morning on a gorgeous Sunday.

We made it to the Bedford Depot after riding for about 40 minutes and 11 miles.

We stopped in Lexington on the way back and were planning on a coffee stop, but no one was serving coffee due to the water main break!!  Oh well, we sat for a bit and relaxed.

After returning back to Alewife after our 22 mile bike ride, we headed to Panera for lunch.

Post-ride fuel: a Mediterranean veggie sandwich and apple.

It was a gorgeous bike ride on a gorgeous day.  It felt good to get back on my bike!  It was my first ride since last fall!
