Catching Up…

01 Apr

Our first official bike ride of the year took place on Sunday, January 15.

U Man Power Bike Shop

We bought Karen's new trike at the U Man Power Bike and Trike Shop

We rode the greenway trail around Townsend, TN, to test drive a new trike for Karen (a Terratrike Rover). The new trike has eight gears rather than three and goes up hills more easily than the old one did.

I didn’t have my computer with me, but we went about 9 miles since that’s the length of the Townsend trail.

The next one was on Sunday, March 24.

We actually went across this pedestrian bridge that crosses US 129, a four lane highway, to connect pieces of the Alcoa greenway.

We drove down to Alcoa, TN, and rode a piece of the greenway there.

Two days later, on Tuesday, March 26, I took a vacation day from work and we drove to Chattanooga.

Flat, quiet roads among the monuments and cannon provide a nice place to ride bikes.

We scouted the Chickamauga and Chattanooga park, which I had read is a good place for bike riding.

Then we rode the Riverwalk.

We had lunch at Gollywhoppers

And that catches up for the year.
