are we crazy? BIke the Bay – Aug 24th

my husband and i have recently started bike riding again, we have both mountain/trail bikes and hybrid road bikes.  a friend who is a much more active rider talked us into signing up for a 26 mile casual ride in downton san diego called Bike the Bay.  to say we are unprepared for that ride coming up on us this weekend is probably a gross understatement.

 

we will be going anyway, hopefully with another few practice rides between now and then, but it is supposed to be a fun ride, not a race so i think it will be ok.  2014-07-19 09.41.48

if only we had listened

We tried to listen, but the excitement was just too much, we grabbed our towels and ran.  We loved those unpredictable waves, telling each other , “go farther”  to see who would be knocked down first. We love the water, at home the fast rushing river or creek, or the calm smooth lake, tasting nice and cool when you got it in your mouth.  The ocean was a whole new world every summer, salty and stinging, scary and exciting.  There was just no time for sunscreen…  if we had only realized how much time would be lost, when we could have been in the waves.
