Just the Two of Us!

Philip and Me!

Today, the weather was somewhere between 65 ad 70 degrees, and the sun was shining brightly. I could not wait until 3:30 in order to do a group ride with the bike shop Spokes Etc. This group normally rides through neighborhoods. It is a great, challenging ride, but I really desired to ride to DC today. There is nothing like riding to DC on a sunny, fall day. However, today DC was not in the plans, or so I thought.

I got to the bike shop about 45 minutes early. (Can you tell that I was a little excited?) I talked to the guys in the shop for a while, and I was the only person who showed up for the ride. That meant that the ride leader, Philip, and I were going to do this ride by ourselves: Just the Two of Us.

As we were preparing to leave, Philip asked if I would mind if we rode to DC to Hains Point, a park in DC where riders love to ride because there are few cars and a rider can do speed practice. This was truly the desire of my heart. I wanted to ride to DC, and that is what we did. (We are always granted the desires of our heart.) I also informed Philip that I was a fast rider; I was not in the mood for a granny ride today.

Philip pushed me hard today. We rode between 17 to 20 miles per hour the entire ride. When we got to Hains Point, Philip stated that we were going to do one fast lap and head back to the the bike shop. We got to Hains Point and Philip took off, and I was right behind him. I wanted to stop a few times, but I stayed on his tail for the entire lap. (I've come a long way baby!)

We talked, laughed, and rode hard, and I am looking forward to more rides with Philip....

Just the two of us!!

I really hope that you received a few of the desires of your heart today.
