Mountain Bike Monday - Girls Morning Out

Ride July 22, 2012 (3)

Last week Dynamo and I hit the Battlefield for a couple of loops after work! We got there and had just missed a big storm, so the road was really wet! Dynamo stopped about a mile into the ride for the little guy above! I saved him by placing him across the road in the grass. My good deed for the day :)

We were virtually the only ones out there last Thursday. I guess it was because of the weather!

We got in a good 15 miles or so! It was lonely without Charlie, but because it was a little too warm, we decided he needed to rest at home in the A/C!

Then, on Sunday morning, I met up with my friend, Missy, for another damp ride at Poco! While we rode, Dynamo headed over to do a loop on Forest Exploration.

We met at the Nature Center and headed back towards the front of the Park on the Fendley Station Loop! Missy wanted to see some of the fireroads since she had only done singletrack out there.

So, I took her on a little tour. It was raining little specs here and there, but for the most part it was a nice morning for a ride!

We rode down to the damn and parked our bikes. We wanted to take a look at the water!

It was still pretty low, even after the rain!

We ventured back towards the park entrance and then down the Muddy Buddy Trail. I wanted to show Missy the new bridge!

We had such a lovely time just riding and chatting. Missy got to see new parts of the park and I got to practice my navigation skills!

I do love that park. There's so much out there to see! It's especially pretty while everything is so green!

It was a nice girls' ride! I hope we can do it again soon!
