A Nice, Hot Ride

“Rossa” Cedar Park, 2022

Rossa and I hit the hike and bike trail before it got too warm today, and it looked like a lot of people had the same idea. 😀

Ride along on your stationary bike if you’d like!

Adjusted Bicycle Saddle

I finally decided to adjust the saddle on Sophie to be the correct angle (for me). I had set the saddle pretty much level for aesthetic reasons, but felt that comfort was now more important. So the nose is now tilted up like on my other bikes and it makes for much more pleasant riding. 😀

Good Weather to Ride Bicycles

“Bicycle Sign” Cedar Park, 2022

It’s the beginning of May, and here in Central Texas, we’re having perfect riding weather. Today was sunny, with nice clouds, and a soft breeze. So of course I had to go ride my bicycle at lunchtime.

Sophie and I rode to the hike & bike trail and did our normal paved loop (with a tiny bit of gravel). We stopped at the skatepark to take a photo under the “No Bicycles” sign. When I would come here with my boys, there were often BMX bikers using the park alongside skateboarders, scooters, and the occasional inline skater. Everything seemed fine. But I guess something must have happened to prompt the sign being put up. Oh well.

Anyway, if you have time, please watch the video I made, or save it to your bookmarks and ride along with us on your stationary bike!

Long Ride with Rossa

“Rossa on the Path” Cedar Park, 2022

Today I went on a long (for me) ride with Rossa, my Bianchi Alante bike. It was really windy, but still a lot of fun. Actually, the wind was good because I saw some people flying kites at the park which is always neat to see. Kites are so cool.

If you’d like to ride along with us, I made a video (as I do with most of my bicycle rides). Please take a look if you have time!

Bluebonnets on the Hike & Bike

“Sophie & Bluebonnets” Austin, 2022

A lunchtime ride to the nearby hike & bike trail was made special by a bluebonnet explosion! This year is actually not the best because of rain conditions, but there were some really nice patches of color. And they matched Sophie’s paint nicely too. 😆

If you have a few minutes, why not come for a ride with us:
