Magnum's been working some longer days lately to build up some hours to get a few flex-time Fridays in. Today was one of them. Yay!
We took advantage of the sun and warmth - it doesn't feel like fall at all here yet - and hit the bike trail.
Neither of us has been on this stretch of trail before, and it was a nice ride through mostly boonies. There were a few areas of what I might call "technical" with some steep grades, rocky rutties, and loose sand, but for the most part it was very manageable. Bella and whatever Magnum's neglected bicycle is named handled it all just fine.
It was a beautiful day for it. For a while, we paralleled the interstate, watching as the poor slobs sat in commuter traffic.
Pizzas for anyone who can name the Colorado attraction in the photos. Anyone? Guano??
Soon enough, we decided we'd better turn around. It was another 5 miles or so to the next town up the trail, and if we'd had more time, we would've just continued. But I had some homework to finish and felt I should do the responsible thing...
