I love having Ellie home for the summer, but I also enjoy the days she visits Grandma so I can go on an extra long bike ride. Today I biked almost 16 miles out and back to a little town called Dixboro. I chose a new route that you can see here on Bikely. I loved this route because it was very rural… lots of farms, big sky, puffy clouds and even a cute little cow. The only bad part is on the way back, a tractor had plowed the dirt road so it was more dusty than flat and smooth as it was on the way out. Oh well.
I also did not wear my bike shorts, with the pads. I'm having trouble walking. That'll teach me! 🙂
Here is a bit of what I saw along the way! Off to pick up Elle and go get our shares from our CSA.
