He has ridden several times since we relocated but me...well, I had not felt like it. But today was just too nice to stay indoors and I didn't want another sunny day to slip by again as the other nice days had. Besides, I can always work around the house during the evenings, right?
So I put on my gear and went out for a spin...on my own because John was already outside riding with a friend. It felt so good to get some fresh, crisp air in my lungs and to feel the cool air brush across my face. Why did I put off cycling in the outdoors for so long? What was I afraid of?

The remainder of my ride was peaceful and beautiful. On back country roads, horses and goats grazed the land of properties that sat on large acreages and the trees still displayed their magnificent fall colors. Yet, the highlight of my joy was when I crossed paths with John and his riding partner on Virginia Street. I was lost and pulled into a small shopping center to look at my location on GPS when I saw my sweetie riding by. I caught up with him and his friend and rode with them until we reached our street and turned off for home.
I am glad I finally went for a bike ride. It was lovely and I also had a wonderful, long holiday weekend with John, Havi, and Elgy. Time to return to the office tomorrow.
