Spring BREAK.... more than just not working, also not riding a whole lot. I have been on a bike at least every day this week but most often for quick errands in the neighborhood. I did have one great morning ride with Wes on Wednesday that got me out on the Trek. This ride also led me to discover the LBJ Memorial Grove, which is gorgeous, situated just about even with the Pentagon off the Mount Vernon Trail it is a gorgeous meandering path through pine trees with a central memorial area. Definitely worth a visit.
The other memorable ride this week was on Friday when Erika and I took the tandem out, ostensibly for a quick trip up to Mt Vernon Ave (not to be confused with the trail by the same name), but we were feeling good enough in our skills that we made the trip to Shirlington and back via the Four Mile Run Trail. The trip there was fine, but the ride back was nothing short of eye-opening. We made great speed and had a blast, it was like being on a sled going downhill... I think it opened up both of our eyes to just what the tandem could be once we get good at it (and dial in the frame a bit).
Happy Spring to everyone!
