Back when I was about 7 or 8, I discovered a new state of independence awarded to me by two wheels. Having a bike was sweet freedom, and I was smitten. I loved it so much I even wanted to become a pro-cyclist. But, after someone stole my bike right in front of my apartment in Boston, I was heart broken. Being a poor college student, there was no way I would be able to afford another one and I didn't ride again for years. Then life happened, I moved several times, got married, had kids, and after one failed attempt to get bikes (we actually bought them, they just sucked), we finally bit the bullet and bought decent bikes. Reunited and it feels so good!
For the past few months, we've been riding through some of the really great trails in northern Delaware. It's the most peaceful and fulfilling activity, and being in nature is so energizing. We're definitely hooked.
Here are a few pics from a recent trip through White Clay Creek State Park in Delaware. We crossed state lines while on the trail and were pretty excited about that! If you live in the area, you have to check it out! The trail mostly follows the creek, but there are beautiful vistas to take in even when you are not right along side the water.
If you look closely at this picture, there are quite a few frogs under the lily pads!
All pictures were taken at White Clay Creek State Park, about 10 minutes or so from the University of Delaware Campus. If you have the chance, you should go!
