I needed some play time, so I bought myself a toy.
Yeah, it's one of those drone/quadcopter thingys. Pretty fun once I got the hang of it.
Outside fun time. It's still not time on a bike. Yeah, I was outside, but not long enough. I keep getting the hairy eyeball when I stayed indoors too long.
Screw it. I couldn't take it any longer. I had to get out on the bike. Not really digging another roadie adventure, I grabbed one of my off-road machines to try an urban ride.
Don't be such a roadie.
Behind my neighborhood is a hiking trail of some sort. I ride it every once in a while but this time it was a big deal to try it. You know, because bumps and stuff.
It actually wasn't bad. The real issue I had was when I tried to stand up and climb. You know, because single speed. Still, I started looking for more stuff off the beaten path.
And to enjoy being outside.
Ribs hurt, but being off road was so much fun that I temporarily forgot about it. I kept going and ended up on another path through the woods.
It was enjoyable for sure. I was on my bike, the weather was perfect, and I was able to forget about the pain I was in. Even gravel grinding was fun.
But then I remembered that there was a trail nearby. I was feeling frisky, and definitely missed riding on singletrack.
