A Short Bike Ride

The weather lately has been relatively warm, and after breakfast this morning, I thought I’d dust off my bike and go for a ride. I haven’t ridden much as I’ve been focusing my aerobic efforts on running, but I’ve got a pretty nice bike that I haven’t used much. (It’s a Trek Marlin 6, if you’re interested in that stuff).

Everywhere from our apartment is downhill, and I used Sinton Trail to get onto the Pikes Peak Greenway Trail (which runs alongside Monument Creek). I headed south from there through Monument Valley Park and looped around America the Beautiful Park. The Monument Valley Park/America the Beautiful Park is essentially the route of my 10K from September.

Heading back north through town is uphill and — today — into the wind. It’s a more discernable uphill climb from Pikes Peak Greenway along Sinton Trail and back to the apartment. I actually think it’s easier to run up the hill than it is to ride up it.

I think I rode something between 10-12 miles.
