I am a mountain biker at heart, but probably do most of my riding on streets now with the Lovely Elaine, since that is what she prefers. My sister's home backs up to forest land and in that forest land is a great mountain bike trail. Finally on Friday I got my Intense 5.5 out in between rain storms and rode the trail for an hour, or so.....probably about 6 miles in all. I will be riding this trail more in the coming weeks....all I have to do is ride down to the end of the street and on to this trail.
We rode up the west side of the River past the Civic Center, and then crossed over the bridge to Gonzaga, and then headed back down the river on the east side. On our way home, about half way up the long climb to South Hill I spied a Rocket Bakery at the intersection of Adams and 14th, so I suggested we take a break and have a cup of coffee, which we did, of course! We arrived back home around 1pm.
Later that evening I watched, simultaneously, the Celtic/Heat game, and the Kings/Devils game.......the Celtics were beaten soundly, and single handedly, by LeBron James, and my Kings, also lost a close game.
Friday evening Bob returned from Chicago, and my sister treated us to her award winning White Chili.
It was a very laid back week with rain on and off coupled with very cool temperatures. We are really enjoying out time here in Spokane, and getting to know the area. Next week we will do more bicycling, and more exploring.
Thanks for stopping by!
