Today was a good day. With temps in the upper 60’s, or lower 70’s, I hit the trail. I took my recumbent, my 2-wheeled trailer and my dog to the Capital Trail. I had tried this a little over a week ago with my one wheeled, BOB trailer. That did NOT work well. I didn’t get to cycle that day.
Today, however, I zipped the passenger compartment shut and though the dog hated the trip and bounced off the various walls of the “berth”, I did the entire 14 miles. None of the tires had more than 20 psi, so it was a difficult ride, but one I was determined to make.
The dog never did relax. She twisted and futzed the entire trip, unfortunately. Hopefully, she will adjust to cycling as a lifestyle, as it’s very much in our future. The trip was great, the non-existent hills were very much in existence to this out-of-shape cyclist. My knees complained, my muscles complained and my dog complained. I can’t wait to do this again.
Tomorrow, I can’t, though and Thursday, the temps are back down in the teens. AND I have to get to WV to check on the house, as the temps there are supposed to be single digit this weekend. Ah well, today was an unexpected gift 🙂
Go make your own breeze and remember: if you’re not having fun; you’re in the wrong gear.
