The Last Day of 2011

So, on December 31, 2011, we were blessed with some BEAUTIFUL weather. So much so, that Greg and I scrapped our plans of cleaning up our house during the day (hah! like that's ever hard to give up), because we knew we had to be outside enjoying the weather. We did a little research and found a place just 10 minutes from our house where you could rent road bikes at a relatively cheap price and so we decided to commit.

I have never actually ridden a road bike before. Greg, on the other hand, not only owned a ride bike, but the summer before we met, he and two other men rode mountain bikes throughout the Himalayas. Aka, he's kind of legit. So, naturally, I want to be just as cool as him, and I have always dreamed of getting a bike and soaking up beautiful weather when the occasion arose. That dream was crushed when we were moving Greg out of Waco and realized that his road bike had been stolen out of his garage. Only in Waco. So for now, we rent bikes and dream of the day when we can throw down some G's to get some bikes.

We took the White Rock Creek trail that starts at a park near our house and rode down to Dallas White Rock Lake. All in all, the trip was about 15 miles and took us around an hour. It was the perfect way to enjoy the last day of 2011. And yes, I am now a fan of road bikes. It's on my list of things to buy when I'm a millionaire. Someday....... hah.
