The weather gods were smiling today so I decided to go for a bike ride OUTSIDE to celebrate. I had a short 60 minute or so ride on the calendar that was really just to assess my leg and hip function (or lack there of). I figured I could go to SUNY Old Westbury and do a few loops. SUNY Old Westbury is a 4 mile hilly loop that is perfect for riding.
I broke out the new bike and decided to try it out on pavement rather than a hamster wheel. I pushed it a bit much but overall it was a good ride. I cut it short to not tempt fate and headed home. On the way I took the picture on the right. There is no photoshop involved here so that temperature of 59 is accurate.
When I got home my 12 year old daughter Courtney was riding her bike around the neighborhood. When she saw me pull up in she said "Dad, have you done your cool down yet? Want to do it with me?"
How could I resist?
