Day 6 – 30 Days of Summer

What an adventure my bike ride was tonight!  

Jim and I headed out together and when we got to the end of the road, he said the same thing he did last week when we found ourselves on the highway – let’s take this trail and see where it goes….and that’s how we ended up with our bikes on the railway tracks. 😬

We stood there for a bit and looked all directions; the trail was rough and we didn’t want to ride it again, there were no other roads or options so we decided – hell, let’s go for it.  We rode our bikes down the railway tracks!!

Turns out, this is not an easy thing to do.  The tracks are uneven, rocky, dirty and just a little bit thrilling.  Ok they’re a huge amount of thrilling.

Riding my bicycle down the railway tracks in the middle of a farmer’s field on a hot summer day is pretty much the coolest thing I’ve ever done on my bike!  I won’t pretend it wasn’t a hard ride and my body wasn’t dirty, tired and sore….but I loved every damned minute of it!  

Would I do it again….not a chance; but today I loved it and now I can say I rode the rails. 🚂
