Biking with is great! Over the years we have had a couple of different types of bikes. When we were in Albuquerque 15 years ago, Pam and I decided to get mountain bikes. About five years ago I got a road bike which I ride the most now.
This past summer Kelly and I took a ride on the Washington and Old Dominion (W&OD) trail which I read is one of the most used in the U.S. We had a nice Saturday morning ride making our way through Vienna and down into Mclean. I have had quite a few outings on the W&OD.
A couple of months ago my neighbor Gil and I did a 33 miler (which is modest by real bikers standards but a lot for me). It was a spectacular day starting out in Nokesville, VA and winding through the country roads. A big bonus that morning was a country store in the middle of nowhere. We enjoyed some coffee on the front porch.
A couple few days ago, Adam and I rode into Wash D.C (acutally Georgetown). He needed to go to work and I wanted to see that part of the WO&D. It was easy going into town since it was down hill. The 13 miles took about an hour.
Since the kids are relatively closeby, I look forward to riding more with them. I thought once they moved out and moved on we wouldn't be riding very much. But every time we get to ride, its a bonus.
