Battlefield ride Sept 12, 2013

Last Thursday we headed to the Battlefield for a short spin off-road!

Dynamo had just gotten a new bike, but hadn't had the chance to ride it because he unfortunately hurt his back.

But...he doesn't let that sort of thing hold him back for long!

After some chiropractic service and acupuncture, he decided to give it a go!

It was a short ride, but enough to get the feeling that the bike was going to be just right!

And...on Saturday we participated in the Heart of Virginia Bike Festival 31 mile ride!

What a beautiful day for a ride! It truly was the best possible riding weather we could have asked for! At the start they had the fife and drum from Yorktown!

The roads were relatively calm and not well traveled, which was great for us bikers!

And, the scenery was lovely! Some beautiful farmland in Hanover and Caroline Counties!

As if I'd never seen them picking corn before I had to snap a few pics anyways! I never tire of seeing the farming process. It is truly amazing!

Of course I waved to the farmer!! And, he waved back!

We met two nice guys on the ride and rode the final half of the ride together after this nice rest stop!

These rides are always so much fun because you always meet so many nice people and see parts of the state you normally don't drive through!

A good ride on a great day! Saturday made me think of the song, "This is the day that the Lord hath made!"

We will rejoice and be glad in it...
