Paul and I will soon be headed to Durango (in southwestern Colorado) for a week of bicycling, hiking, and other forms of energetic fun. (Much to my delight, we’re staying at a small private house next to the La Plata River a mile from anyone else at the Blue Lake Ranch.)
Yesterday, I bought bike clips (not straps, but clips and shoes) to anchor my feet to the pedals to make the upcoming miles smoother. I was only able to ride a quick six miles after getting home, as it was getting dark. But wow wow wow. It was a whole different experience, so much better than the regular way.
I can’t wait for our trip.
