Bike Rides

We took a couple of long bike rides this weekend. Sunday was the longest when we went out for a 14 mile ride. We rode on the Springwater Corridor for the first time. This is a bike path that runs along the Willamette River between the Southern part of Downtown and we got off the trail in Sellwood. From there we had to get home which was mostly uphill. It was not very warm in the morning so we wore jeans. I will not do that again. I was so hot and the jeans were sticking to my legs from the sweat.

Four more days left of swimming lessons. It is not supposed to get very warm today and there is a chance of rain, so it might be a little challenging. The nice thing about going to open swim on cooler days, it not very crowded, so the pool is fun. They turn the heat up on cooler days so it is fine as long as we stay in the water.

Awww...I miss the Springwater Corridor. Once upon a time (pre-kidlets) we used to ride with friends after work on summer evenings. I remember seeing a beaver family at work at the one end one evening, and of course you can snitch blackberries all along the way about this time of the summer. Love the scent of wild blackberries all over town! (I haven't been on that bike since I was pregnant with Bug!)
