I have heard lots about the "famous taco ride" that happens on Thursdays and have always wanted to try it. So, last Thursday our bible study group took a break from the study and some of us went out on the trails. You basically ride about an hour to this small restaurant in a small town that has tacos and ride an hour back, hence "taco ride".
I'm not going to lie, this whole experience was not a "leisurely" ride for me. I think for the majority of bikers on the trail it totally is, including Adam. And it might get a little under my skin when he talks about "how easy" it was...hmm... try: I don't careeee! ;) Plus, I am superrrr out of shape at the moment and I've decided I can't get back into until volleyball is over. Smart, I know. I bet you are all jealous of my abundance of self-motivation/effort. These last two weeks I have been constantly tired with schedules and such. I actually need to stop feeling sorry for myself and just get over that life is busy. And now I bet you are all jealous of my ability to being a whiny baby. *Note: I see some personal goals that should probably be looked into. Un-note* Anyways, the ride was fun. Beautiful scenery on the way over! Pitch dark on the way back="wouldn't want to be riding alone" scary.

I don't bike in the super cold and snow.
