Today’s bike ride: I so needed this

We attempted another trail ride today since the last time out the trail was a little mushy, and because…SUNSHINE! Not to mention the melancholic week I’m having.

This time we started our ride from West Newton, PA, and went a little over 8½ miles before we turned around. The temperature made it to around 74° and we got to soak in even more beautiful blue skies.

Here are a few of the pictures I took including the inevitable action shot.
