Long Reach is in the short term!

The day we’ve been waiting for! A great forecast for tomorrow means a 92 km trek across the Peninsula. Our ride will include 2 ferries (the Romeo & Juliet and the Westfield Ferry). The route also includes breakfast at the Kingston market around 9:30 a.m. and an ice cream cone at the Grand Bay Pumpkin Patch around noon.

The weather has been so cold that we have yet to put out our patio furniture which mean we might have to have our “ride ending” honey brown sitting in the front yard Adirondacks.

all this rain is really putting a damper on things!

Severe rain warning for my area! yuck! It’s been raining for days and the bike is parked in the garage. I was so optimistic about May and I feel like its been a complete waste. I know there are people who cycle rain or shine but not me. I like the feel of the sun on my cheeks.

Not a great spring for cycling so far…

The sun fooled us again! We went out cycling after work today but the cold and wind were raw so we cut our ride short. We’re already starting to feel the pressure of our 2,000 km goal. Last spring was beautiful and we got a great jump on thing early.

We know people who cycle all winter. Let me tell you, in Atlantic Canada, that is no small feat…cold feet yes…small feat…no! I hate to be a whiner but the truth is we have a narrow band of comfort…not too hot…not too cold…that’s how we like it. Oh…and no wind please.
