So this week I’ve decided to take a ride down to leadbetter and follow the bike path all the way down to Butterfly beach. It will be a nice ride to get my mind off all the upcoming finals and AP tests.
So I’m super into biking and try to get out when I can, but as I said before, finals and AP tests have been really booking up my schedule. Long story short, I haven’t been out in a while and think it would be great to get back into it. My friends are now all of a sudden inviting me to ride with them, but considering I haven’t ridden in a while, I won’t be able to ride trail like I used to. This is a huge bummer, but I have to hop back on the horse and get my legs back into the groove. Going on a ride downtown isn’t exactly what I enjoy doing, I love mountain biking, road is a little too humdrum and boring. I like being on edge and having that adrenaline rush flush through me as the slope has gotten to the point where my brakes are no longer useful. From there, it’s all form and weight distribution to keep you from skidding out.
But back to the beach ride. I think it’ll be great to get out and take a breather. I’d start from upper state, go down to the Hendry’s light, and take a left and follow the message until I got to Lazy Acres. I’d then take a right, follow the road down to leadbetter, hop on the bike path, and cruise. It would be nice if there were waves I could gaze at as I rode by, but there seems to be an absence of swell :(. There has also been an unusual amount of wind recently which has been making some of the boat owners go crazy. Just the other day, I watched as one of the catamarans sitting on the sand toppled over and shattered some of the fiberglass. Insane, I can’t remember the last time we had that much wind.
All in all, I looking forward to the ride. It will probably happen tomorrow, Wednesday, around noonish so if you’d like to join me on my adventure, you’ll know where I’ll be!
