A Day With The Lovely One

 As always. Click photo for big. Click again for bigger

Distance      33.2 Miles
Saddle time  3:00 hrs
Max speed  23.7 mph
Ave speed  11.0 mph

The Lovely One, AKA wifey, offered to go on a ride with me today. She is not set up for long distance biking and her offer was a pleasant surprise. Our average speed was down a bit, but considering her being on  a hybrid and out of riding fitness, it wasn't that bad.

We chose a relatively flat 32 mile loop to the center of Wareham, MA which is considered by the locals as the gateway to Cape Cod. It's rural riding at it's best offering wide lightly traveled roads through cranberry bogs, small farms and ponds. The turn around spot is Wareham Harbor on Buzzards Bay.

We chose a bike ride over sitting at home watching the Boston Bruins victory parade on TV and I am happy we made the right choice. I also got to buy a favorite lunch, egg salad on white at Cumberland Farms convenience story. yum.

 There was a left over photo from last weeks trip to Boulder and #1 sons place.   
Good book, nice view, cheap bourbon.  Perfect.
