First Bike Ride!

Aubrey and I had our first bike ride today and it was a blast! Here's the route we did:

It was such a nice evening and we both just loved the ride! It took us just over an hour, so I know one of the things we'll need to work on is upping our speed. For me, I haven't ridden a bike in YEARS and this was Aubrey's longest ride as well, so I think it's a good starting point. We had a few hills and really just had fun. At one point she said, "This is the best day of my life!" She is soooo easy to please! ;)

I'd really like to get a speedometer so that I can tell how fast we're going as we are riding. That might help as we work on improving our speed. There's no question in my mind that we can do the 15 miler but I think that we'll be up to the challenge of riding 35 miles.


  1. Carrie,

    Thanks for the plug for The Little Red Riding Hood ride. I'm also struggling with losing weight and getting in shape. And I read your blog from time to time for encouragement.

    Anyway, I'm Darcy, Marlie's sister-in-law and I live in Providence. And tonight I signed up for the ride. So, maybe we can meet at the ride.


  2. Darcy ...

    I can't see your blog but I wanted say ... "COOL!" I'd love to meet you on the day of, we'll have to chat when it gets closer. I'm trying to get Marlies to do it as well, so we could totally meet up!
