Rail Trail Biking

Hancock_sign1_webYesterday, Nicole and I met to ride on the Western Maryland Rail Trail. The weather was overcast and cool, but that didn’t put a damper on our spirits. We got an early start and agreed that apple pie would be our reward at the end of the ride (coffee, too!).

We were having a blast. Once we got to the turnaround we stopped for a snack break. We were soon joined by another cyclist. He was…um…unique. *cough* Not sure why he greeted the pasty Cannondale chics in Spanish, but… It was really hard to miss the custom paint job with the words “Dr. Big Dog” scripted along the down tube of his bike. Ah, alrighty then. Nicole and I did some major interval training on the return trip.

Once we had the bikes loaded, we walked to the bakery to get our pie. Not sure if apple_pie1_webthis is a good thing or not, but the waitress remembered us from last week. Maybe that’s why our pie slices were bigger? Hmm…. And we were bad, sharing a chuckle at the woman seated behind us who kept her bike helmet on while eating. *snicker* Sorry!

Stats on the ride:  23 miles in 1:42. Not bad considering we are both on the recovery train!
