They don't call Washington the evergreen state for nothing! I went bike riding yesterday out by a town called Orting. There was a smaller town called Mcmillan that I was riding through. I brought my camera and took these shots of the area. It is a pretty area and lots of little farms selling fresh produce and flowers and xmas trees in the winter. Or in the fall it will be filled with pumpkin patches. I rode the trail for 12 miles as that's the distance I will need to ride in the tri race. It is pretty flat land so I will have to find another spot to practice some hill climbing as I know Seattle will have some of those. I have been biking quite a bit and am going to increase my number of rides per week.
What I do hate is worrying about which trail to do. There is a really nice one about 6 miles from this area but it goes into lots of wooded areas and don't feel totally safe riding by myself. I will go there when my husband and son can go too. There are some serious bikers out there with all the racing clothes and racing bikes, like my hubby has. And, then there are some regular ole folks like me, young and old. Now, that we have been having days in the 60-70's it is nice to get outside but hard to get into the gym. I did go to the gym today and got back into weight lifting and did some walking outside so that felt good.
Share where you go in your daily life if you have the time. I'm interested to see where you live, what the area looks like!
Have a good memorial day weekend if you celebrate it and thanks for commenting. It helps.
