With a little extra daylight to look forward to I climbed on my bike at about 4:00 this afternoon and headed to Old Town Alexandria for a spur of the moment ride. After a week-long funk over the health of a close friend I was ready to shake off a bit of sadness with a change of scenery and some fresh air.
I rolled the bike right out the front door, pushed off and was on my way. It's been about 5 or 6 weeks since I've used the biking muscles but thankfully my legs weren't too rusty. In no time at all I was riding parallel to the Potomac River watching the planes make their slow ascent above my head.
I usually like to stop and take pictures along the way but today the ride was so enjoyable I skipped the usual photo stops and kept on pedaling.
Yes, Daylight Saving Time is pretty controversial but tonight I was happy to have a little more daylight to ride by.
