November Goodness

On Thurs. evening I informed my trainer that I would be cancelling our hour weightlifting session on Friday. I do NOT normally cancel on him but, I had a good excuse.  It was November 9th and it was going to be 73 degrees.

ALL smiles

  I was not trying to get out of a workout, just replace it with a three hour bike ride.  Katy Trail style.  I wanted to open my legs, lungs, and mind, all at the same time.

I went left at the T

Fall colors

Doesn't matter what you ride, just ride
NOT a place to hang your used tube

I love riding the Katy.  I can let my mind wander.  I can crank my Ipod up .  I can hammer it out, or pedal casually. 

Rough surface?
Someone placed this rose here, saw on my return

Tube necklace for a few miles until I found a trashcan

As you can tell from the pictures, I had a great time.  I rode out for 1 and 1/2 hours, which was 20 miles. Not too shabby.  The ride back took me 1:40.  Forty miles in 3:10, wind and all.  Take advantage of days like this..... there may not be many left.

Ride your bike fast or slow, gravel or trail,  just ride it!


  1. I laugh every time I ride past that 'Rough Surface' sign too

  2. It's been great weather for the bike. Could've used a good 20 degrees cooler at yesterday's race, but every time I wanted to complain about the heat I said "What a beautiful day!" instead. I even meant it fir the first 12 miles.

  3. I've always wondered about the Katy Trail. Looks like a good idea this time of year! Congrats on the running gear scores too!
