We did it!!


For months, my bicycle buddies and I have been increasing miles in our riding. Not for time, nor duration. Distance. Our goal was to ride the Razorway Greenway from start to finish. Yesterday, we did just that. Now, we have ridden the distance needed, but it was always from our starting part to a certain destination then return to starting point. So yesterday 6 of us started at mile maker #37 (Bella Vista Lake, Arkansas) at 7:00 AM  reaching mile maker #0 (South Fayetteville Arkansas) 5.5 hours later! This also included gaining 1326 feet in elevation.
This was the first time we connected all 6 towns together. A great feeling. A total of 40 miles by time we doubled back for lunch! 

   Here we are with our 'biking socks'. One of our rides son and daughter in-law provided them. Read the details here:  Portland Airport Socks

                                                             Hills are a killer....







 I took this pic at mile maker #0
                 
 Kathy took this one that way  both of us could be in the pics.
Now off to lunch! Great 40 mile ride. Fun day with great ladies. *smile*



The best part was NOT having to ride back. (My goal for another time) Here you see one of our riders husband as he is unloading our bikes. Yes, this awesome person drove an hour or so to pick us up, loaded our bikes with tender loving care. Each had its own blanket and everything. Took us our to cars and this is what you are seeing here.  
                                                  Another wonderful adventure!
