The Tourist Ride

Yesterday's ride was long-ish in length. After the first climb I realized that being sick can and will sap some of the power right out of your legs. Thankfully Nick was up for turning our ride into a tourist-style ride for my slow climbing legs.

Flat #1 of 2 took place in a great location. We pass this ostrich farm all the time, but it seems we are always flying by in a long train and I never have my camera ready.

There was some wind.

These old fences are my absolute favorite. If I ever own a ranch (stop laughing!) I'm having a fence like this.

A peak of the lake.

And I want a barn like this on my ranch...

I love the rides you go on. I saw at Costco, a camera that mounts on your handlebar for $99.99. You can set it to take pictures at a certain set time interval, as well as manual ones.

I love your dedication to go out even if you aren't up to par and then make lemonade out of a lemons when your not feeling good

I would love to visit your ranch! Glad you got some sunshine today and hope you feel 100% soon!

LOVE LOVE LOVE the ostrich farm. I am always giggling like a fool when I pass them and see them running!

Ostriches are so stupid. And mean. If you have a ranch will it be a vegetarian ranch? (That's also known as "a farm.")

I never think to take pictures on my rides. It always seems I'm focused on the task at hand - keeping the rubber side down.

Do you have only a ranch? I thought a castle with a very big park!
