Riding with the wind March 11, 2009

Posted by goirishgorebels in General.

Got back on the road yesterday.  It was about 80 degrees with some good winds.  I took my Route 196 ride.  It’s about 19 miles and pretty flat.  I really enjoy riding in the Lakeland/Arlington area.  Memphis-Arlington road isn’t too busy and there are lots of trees.  One of the benefits of riding in this area is the wildlife.  Though I didn’t see any animals yesterday, I could hear them moving on the sides of the road.  It’s sort of freaky, but I’m sharing space with them so I mind my own business and keep on riding.  I’m sure I’ll cross paths with the racoons, deer, and yes, snakes.  I got to smell some skunk on the ride yesterday, but I sure hope I don’t come across one of them. 

I’m not sure when I’ll get back out due to some cold weather coming our way.  Keep checking back for the updates.  I’ll try to remember to take a camera with me next time out and post some pictures.  That’s it for today.
